Before that, it was available for a brief period as a Samsung exclusive title, meaning anyone without a Samsung Galaxy device specifically had to wait until after August 12 to get into the beta.

Epic Games, the studio behind the insanely popular battle royale game "Fortnite" has now officially made the mobile version available for everyone. Well, starting today, you will no longer need an invite to play Fortnite beta for Android. You can check out CNET's guide for installing Fortnite for Android here.

Epic Games have done something that most other game developers have not had the courage, nor the capacity to do: distribute their game outside of the Google Play Store. To download Fortnite for your Android device you will have to first install the installer app from the Epic Games website and then follow the instructions to download the actual app. "The great thing about the Internet and the digital revolution is that this is possible, now that physical storefronts and middlemen distributors are no longer required", Sweeney said in conversation with Touch Arcade.
