The much anticipated Android version of “Fortnite” recently launched beta access for Samsung smartphones.

The announcement from “Fortnite” creator Epic Games coincided with the launch event of the Galaxy Note 9. According to a statement, mobile gamers may access the beta Android app of “Fortnite” starting from the Galaxy S7 and above. The compatibility list also includes the Galaxy Tab S3 and S4.

Apart from Samsung users getting first crack at Android “Fortnite,” they will also get to download the special Galaxy outfit.

Epic Games will later open beta access to other Android devices. The company also created a full list of devices compatible to run Android “Fortnite.” The game developers did not specify an exact release date for other Android devices. However, they noted that beta access will become available to non-Samsung devices in the next few days.
