How do I sign up for Fortnite: Battle Royale on Android?
Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney announced at the Samsung Unpacked event today that Fortnite would be launching on Android.
As with the iOS version, it will start with a closed beta version that will gradually roll out to more and more Android customers in the coming days.
To begin with, you need to go to Fortnite.com/Android.
This is where you will locate the sign up forms where you can enter your email to be among the lucky first few to try the game on Android.
The first round of beta invites will only be available to Samsung customers with supported devices, which means a Samsung Galaxy S7 or better.
After the first round invites will be going out over the next few days for players with other supported phones.

What do I do if I get an invite?
If you are lucky enough to get an invitation, you’ll receive instructions on how to download and install the game.
Unlike most games on Android, Fortnite will not be available on Google Play.
To install gamers will have to head over to Epic Game’s website and input your Epic account details to download the installer.
Epic’s software will then take care of the rest.
Anyone playing the game in this early stage should know that things won’t be perfect on a technical level and it could be filled with bugs to begin with.
A lot of the changes have been hammered out following a few months of it being available on iOS.
But Android is a far bigger platform with a lot more considerations, and we can expect some technical improvements to start rolling out after the beta has been out for a while
