Fortnite beta for Android now open to everyone, invitations no longer needed

Today though it seems all must be well as it is available for all users on compatible devices. The Android version launched a few weeks ago as an invite-only beta, but now it's open to all players. The full list of compatible phones can be found on the Epic Games website.

If your phone isn't on the list, you can still give the game a try, and it could still work so long as it has Android 8.0 or later and at least 3GB of RAM.

Fortnite's Android release is particularly interesting since the game is one of the higher-profile titles to completely bypass the Android's official Google Play Store and opt to instead offer downloads directly from Epic's website.

It's really weird - obviously, I have been racing a long, long time, but the happiness I have inside is as high as always. Until recently Ferrari appeared to have the quickest auto on the grid, but failed to capitalise.

Having played in on several devices I am told that the experience isn't as good as on a console but is good enough for gaming on the go.

Epic Games said today that Fortnite for Android no longer requires an invitation to play, meaning that anyone with a compatible device can try the hugely popular game. This means that ultra-defensive players will have a rougher time if there's a Quadcrasher in the mix. How do you find the experience?
