Fortnite but on a Potentially Better Phone
The Fortnite mobile beta for Android is rolling out as we speak, which means many more users will have opportunities to get wrecked on the go. For the past several months, the battle royale has been limited to iOS devices. That in mind, Epic Games’ servers are about to expand with a much broader userbase.
Unfortunately, not everyone’s Android device will include the specs necessary to run Fortnite: Battle Royale. Phones purchased or upgraded within the past three years may work fine, but you can view the specs down below just to be sure.
- OS: Recommended Android 8.0 or higher, 64 bit
- RAM: Recommended 4GB or higher
- GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher
Needless to say, if you own something like the Asus ROG gaming phone, you’re all set.
If you’re used to playing Fortnite on console controls, then the Android touch screen will take some adjustment. Even so, some users have said the IP is remarkably responsive on mobile. Those testaments may vary from the use on an iPhone, however. As time goes by, a prolific dev like Epic will no doubt make the latest version of the game more accessible. They update the experience every week, so why wouldn’t they?
At the time of this writing, Fortnite on Android does not support voice chat, rooted devices, and does not include Save the World mode (nor will it). If you are registered for the beta, you can expect an invitation within the next few days if not the next few hours. If you do receive the invitation, you might come across a waitlist, which is an issue Epic is addressing as we speak.
