Popular game Fortnite to be released on Android


The co-op sandbox survival game Fortnite developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly will soon be available for Android devices.

The game is already available on iOS, officially launching in April after a successful invite-only beta period.

The mobile version of the game echoes the 100 PvP from the Console and PC versions, it even offers the same gameplay and maps.

The developer Epic has made several improvements to the mobile version and recently announced via a blog post more details of further improvements on the horizon.

One of the most talked about improvements was the addition of voice chat which the company confirmed will be available on the mobile version allowing players to chat to a teammate’s no matter what device you are playing on.

Epic stated they will be a button on the screen that lets you mute yourself, mute everyone in your party or go back to open-microphone.

However, the mobile version of the game does suffer from random crashes an issue Epic understands and is currently working on to fix, a company spokesperson said: “stability is still one of our chief concerns”. So players will see improvements as the updates are released.

Other scheduled improvements announced by Epic include the gameplay and controls of the mobile version, including improving autorun and adding “better ways to fire”, however, no further details were mentioned.

Over the next few updates Epic will work on reducing the installation size of Fortnite on mobile, the company has promised to compress the size down while maintaining performance, while overall patch sizes will also be reduced.

Finally Epic said they will fix the code to enhance graphics quality and introduce a battery-saving mode which will let the player alter settings to their preference regarding quality and performance.
