It’s a reality, Fortnite arrives for Android devices

Fortnite is an online game that consists of battles between players from different parts of the world, who simultaneously connect to face each other in a battle where they are looking to know which player with the most skills is capable of surviving the most time in the finite territory where that battle develops.

This game, since its launch in 2017, has generated a great impact on society and video game fans around the world, because it provides a game system that is very easy to handle, so that it never gets to bore players, managing to become one of the best games of the year.

This game is designed to be addictive for its simple-to-use gameplay, in addition to having a friendly design of the game avatars that also add a bit of humor when performing the typical dances of this game. It is also important to note that this game provides a good quality of battles based on the action genre and weapons, which attracts young people constantly.

Fortnite represents a great revelation in the world of video games, because, this became a global trend shortly after its release, which has led to the company that created it, called Epic Games, to obtain a large amount of gains coming from this system. This game was only available on the following platforms:

  • Windows
  • macOS
  • PlayStation 4
  • Xbox One

However, due to the great popularity it won this game so colorful, the company decided to begin work on a new platform where you can play this game as easily as the previously mentioned platforms. Then, the chosen platform for this was Android, the operating system for smart phones has become the most widely used globally, competing with the system of the iPhone phone called iOS (for which is also developing an application of game)

This news, which was announced in August of this year, pleased many players of this game, since, the application will allow them to play this game from their mobile phones, which means that it can be played from almost anywhere without need of a console or a computer, with the only condition that you must have a good internet connection that allows the game does not get stuck in no time.

What phones are compatible with the application of Fortnite?

The application in its current version has many problems that are being solved before its official release, because, it requires a large amount of memory available in the devices, as well as a large RAM that allows to carry out the game normally.

In this sense, only the most recent phones of the Samsung brand are able to support the load that this application requires to operate. It should be noted that the application is still in development, so there are many errors in the system that will only be solved with the passage of time. The phones that are currently compatible with the application are:

  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S3
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

If you have a phone or device that is on this list, then you can download the beta application of the game and test its operation. If you do not have any of these devices, then you need to register in a special link on the Epic Games page, where you can request a position on a waiting list for the next updates of the application.

Steps to install the application

The installation of this application consists of two simple steps to be performed. The first is to register on the Epic Games page, where you will be asked if you are already a Fortnite player. If it is, when you download the application all the progress that is stored in your account will be saved and you will be able to access it from the application. In the opposite case, if you are a new player, the system will ask you to make a record where you must enter the data that is requested to create a new game account. Once this is done, simply, as a second step, proceed to install the application, which requires an available space of approximately 2 Gb and approximately 4 Gb of RAM so that the game does not get stuck in the middle of a game.

Comparison between the Android application and the IOS application

Since the emergence of these two operating systems, they have always been in competition to define which system works best today, generating a debate among users who defend the characteristics of each system. Normally these platforms have the same applications, which work in similar ways but have small different details.

So, in this sense, the application of fortnite was not left out of this debate, since, this application is being developed for both operating systems, and they are in a beta phase of development.

Both applications have good reviews regarding its functionality, although the one developed for the iOS system has a better sharpness in terms of the image quality observed in comparison with the one developed for Android. It can also be noted that the movements of the avatars in both applications are very fluid and you cannot see any problem in this aspect

It should be noted that the iOS application takes more time in development, so it is understandable that it has better characteristics in terms of clarity. This will be later corrected on Android phones when sharing the finished application.

The main disadvantage of this application on both operating systems is that it can only be used by those phones that have developed today, with the older phones cannot handle the weight of this application. This will make it difficult to access this game from mobile phones, due to the high cost of current phones in the market.
