Fornite will be released for Android devices this summer, and now we have an idea of what you’ll need to play it.
Epic Games, who develops and publishes the free-to-play phenomenon, revealed a list of around 40 devices that’ll be supported at launch. It seems Fortnite for Android will be targeting devices with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430, MediaTek’s MT6737, Samsung’s Exynos 7870, and Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 655 for the baseline chips. If you don’t own a flagship, that’s good news for you.
The list includes a range of devices from Google, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Nokia Mobile, Razer, Samsung, and Sony. High-end and mid-range devices are locked in, but also some low-end devices like the Moto E4 Plus are in the mix.
Keep in mind that Epic Games can (and probably will) add many more devices. As of now, the company is testing Fortnite individually to ensure the experience is consistent. Since Fortnite is a cross-platform title, Epic Games needs all versions to remain the same despite running on different hardware.
The release date hasn’t been put on the schedule yet. However, there’s a report out that Epic Games signed a deal with Samsung to make Fortnite a limited-time exclusive for the upcoming Galaxy Note 9.
Samsung’s latest flagship is expected to be released on August 24 around the world, and other Android devices will gain access to Fortnite on the Play Store later on. The agreement between Epic Games and Samsung might expire after 30 days. With that said, Fortnite for Android should be widely available during the back-end of September.
To date, Fortnite has generated more than $1 billion across all other platforms. The battle royale title sees about 40 million players diving out of a Battle Bus every month.
