All of our prayers have been heard, sort of.

Fortnite will arrive on Android

When we think on the newest yet most popular Battle Royale game of all time, don’t we think of Fortnite? Sure, it has a lot of rivals within the field, but none had managed to grow as fast and as financially-wealth as Epic Game’s title.

Though it has encountered a place in many platforms, Android seemed like this developer’s latest choice: But that is soon to change! Alongside rumours, we have found some interesting information about the subject.

All began as a third-party information, some Reddit user (efficient in what he does best) found some images, available on a fellow eSports page, which mainly showed an app-version for cell phones.

This report comes along some good and bad news for you. First off, it will be an exclusive 30-day period game for the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as a matter of promoting this incredible machine for all the gaming community. But, why?

A 4,000 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, a 2960×1440 resolution screen and a lot of enhancements compared to its previous versions, the Note 9 seems like a beast that could keep up with every single game, no matter how heavily graphic are they: This brings us to the point so, why not?

Paired up, afterwards more than 40 workstations will also feature it, and here is the first list of phones we got:

  • Google pixel 2/Pixel 2 XL
  • Huawei Mate 10/Mate 10 Pro/Mate 10 Lite/Mate 9/Mate 9 Pro/P10/P10Plus/P10 Lite/P9/P9 Lite/P8 Lite 2017
  • LG G6/V30/V30 Plu
  • Motorola Moto E4 Plus/G5/G5 Plus/G5S/Z2 Play
  • Nokia 6
  • Razer Phone (Did anyone doubt it?)
  • Samsung Galaxy A5 2017/A7 2017/J7 rime 2017/J7 Pro 2017/Note 8/On7 2016/S9/S9 Plus/S8/S8 Plus/S7/S7 Edge
  • Sony Xperia XA1/XA1 Ultra/XA1 Plus/XZ/XZs/XZ1

Now, sure there are many things to be discussed. First off, sure it sounds great that it comes with the Note 9, right? And, just to let you know, it will also feature $150 worth of V-Bucks: And, in case you’re not exactly a fan it will come with AKG headphones. Awesome, isn’t it?

Samsung even went for the long run, inviting Tyler “Ninja” Blevins to its latest Galaxy Unpacked event, to be celebrated in August: So they are doing it the right way! But what are the cons?

Supposedly, the way it’s going to be available is not through Google’s PlayStore: Oh, boy. Seems like Fortnite will have to be downloaded through third-parts, also called “sideloading”. The reason behind this is still unclear, but it’s believed that it has to be with Google’s seller commissions: Is it still safe enough?

Answer to that question seems crystal clear: Of course not! No side downloads are safe enough, and it gets even worse when we’re talking about one of the biggest Battle Royale games over there; expect tons of scammers, lazy fake sites and more. And remember: Safety first.

Last but not least, I wanted to take some space in order to debate one of the latest tendencies within big companies: Jumping into videogames. A couple years ago, when this “huge success” started, we wouldn’t believe it could go this big. Nevertheless, it has grown significantly big, and some of the chief sharks of all time are investing money into this.

At the end of the day, there’s nothing bad to it, but expect that cell phones go the same path as computers did: Enhanced, better, more powerful and ready to be colossal gaming apparatuses.

So far, Epic Games hasn’t released any official announces yet, but keep yourself updated following their webpage.
