Fortnite Battle Royale Android Beta Comes First to Samsung Galaxy Devices

The Fortnite beta rolls out this week.

Rumors were swirling that Fortnite Battle Royale's Android debut would be tied in some ways to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Today, at Samsung's Note 9 unveiling event, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney appeared on stage to announce that all of Samsung's recent Galaxy phones will be the first to get invited to the Fortnite Android beta, starting today.

Samsung Galaxy S7, S8, S9, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, and Tab S4 users will get a first run at Fortnite on Android, with other Android devices getting Fortnite invites later. What's more, if you order the Note 9 or Tab S4 from Samsung today, you'll get the exclusive Galaxy outfit.
