Future Note 9 owners will get Fortnite on Android before everyone else
This deal would also include free V-Bucks with Note 9 preorders.
If you were hoping to be among the first to play Fortnite when it arrives on Android, be prepared to wait a little bit longer or get ready to pay. At first, the popular game will only be available on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which will officially be announced on Aug. 9, according to 9to5Google.
According to the report, Fortnite for Android will be exclusively available for Note 9 owners for 30 days before launching for everyone else. With the Note 9 likely to launch on Aug. 24, this means the battle royale game should launch on the Google Play Store around Sept. 23.
Back in May, Epic Games announced Fortnite would arrive on the Android platform “this summer.” In a blog post, “The State of Mobile,” it said,
Fortnite is coming to Android!
We are targeting this summer for the release. We know many of you are excited for this release, and we promise that when we have more information to share, you’ll hear it from us first.
A month ago, we told you about unofficial versions of Fortnite for Android that you shouldn’t download because of downloads contained malware.
The free-to-play Fortnite has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon and is poised to make $2 billion in revenues before the end of the year.
The Note 9 is expected to look a lot like its successor, the Note 8, although it will carry a few new features. This is likely to include a larger battery, new S Stylus, and Bixby 2.0. The handset’s expected to come in new color choices, including a newly hued blue and lilac.
