Been thinking about giving Fortnite for Android a try? Now you can, no invitation needed.

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. When Fortnite first launched on Android, it was exclusively available on Samsung phones, and then it required an email invitation to play. Now that requirement has been lifted.

To play Fortnite for Android, you’ll need to visit Fortnite.com from your Android phone. The game isn’t available in the Play Store, so you’ll need to fire up your browser to get it.

These are the phones that are confirmed to be compatible with Fortnite for Android:

  • Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge , S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4
  • Google: Pixel / Pixel XL, Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL
  • Asus: ROG Phone, Zenfone 4 Pro, 5Z, V
  • Essential: PH-1
  • Huawei: Honor 10, Honor Play, Mate 10 / Pro, Mate RS, Nova 3, P20 / Pro, V10
  • LG: G5, G6, G7 ThinQ, V20, V30 / V30+
  • Nokia: 8
  • OnePlus: 5 / 5T, 6
  • Razer: Phone
  • Xiaomi: Blackshark, Mi 5 / 5S / 5S Plus, 6 / 6 Plus, Mi 8 / 8 Explorer / 8SE, Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S, Mi Note 2
  • ZTE: Axon 7 / 7s, Axon M, Nubia / Z17 / Z17s, Nubia Z11
  • HTC: 10, U Ultra, U11/ U11+, U12+
  • Lenovo: Moto Z/Z Droid, Moto Z2 Force
  • Sony: Xperia XZ/Premium, Xzs, XZ1/Compact, XZ2/Premium/Compact, XZ3

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. Epic Games also recommends a GPU that’s either an Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, or Mali-G72 MP12 or higher.

Fortnite is the biggest game around right now, and so it’s great to see Epic Games lift the invitation requirement to make it easier for everyone to download the game and see what the craze is all about. Have you tried Fortnite for Android yet?
