Fornite For Android Beta Now Supports HTC, Sony, And Motorola Devices

Fortnite for Android devices has certainly attracted attention recently, with Epic Games bypassing the Play Store and going it alone as far as distribution of the game has been concerned. Launched on the Samsung flagship Galaxy Note 9, the sandbox survival game has now hit 15 million downloads. After being confined to iOS and console for a long time, the game is now proving its mettle on the Android platform. Even though the Android beta is now in an invite-only phase, Epic notes that the conversion from players being invited to playing is actually similar to that of the iOS beta.

As detailed in a blog post, Epic details the technical challenges encountered for the Android port, which might be useful for developers.

Given the astounding success of the game, Epic is also taking measures to prevent malware threats. Epic is taking down unauthorised "Fortnite for Android" websites and taking actions against fraud pop-ups for the game.

There are a lot more improvements and bug fixes included in this update, so make sure to check out Epic Games' full changelog linked at the end of the article.

For context, the iOS version of the game saw roughly 11 million installations in its first month, according to analysis firm Sensor Tower, though the first two weeks of that period were a more limited "closed beta". Following this, they are likely to look into compatibility issues.
