Fortnite first jumped into the mobile scene back in April, but Epic Games' crazy popular battle royale game alluded Android owners, until now. No need for an invitation, you can grab the Android beta from Fortnite's official twitter encourages players to "squad up" and download the beta today.

Not sure your phone is up to the task? Here are Fortnite's recommended specs on Android:

  • OS: Recommended Android 8.0 or higher, 64 bit
  • RAM: Recommended 4GB or higher
  • GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher

Android players joining now can also look forward to Fortnite's rumored upcoming Halloween skins. Some of the highly anticipated seasonal goodies were recently leaked and have players amped for the spookiest time of the year.
