Fortnite and its inevitable clones arrive on Android devices

Fortnite is a cooperative action game released in July 2017 developed by Epic Games, but it was not until September of the same year that its true climb to success began. With an eye on the success of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, the game launched an independent game mode that, unlike the rest of its proposal, is completely free: Fortnite Battle Royale proposes combats of up to 100 players online in a huge scenario. Currently outperformed in follow-up and active players to referents like Minecraft, Counter Strike and himself PUBG, and now the news comes to us that it will also reach mobile devices, and several clones are already appearing due to its success and that we can already test.

The Fortnite Battle Royale phenomenon

It’s been several days since the most viewed title on Twitch with a follow-up of 150,000 people and more than 4,000 channels. Without going any further, this streamer managed 2.3 million new subscriptions in a few days and the benefits estimated at $ 350,000 monthly. With these numbers ahead it was normal for Epic to present the launch of his new success on mobile devices in light of the repercussion that this same work had with the PUBG. A phenomenon that has transcended all layers considering that even sports stars make jokes about the game.

How to play Fortnite Battle Royale for Android

For now, not much data about the game has been revealed other than a short promotional video on its new registration site. There we can sign up to participate in the imminent beta of the title, which is currently closed for iOS devices. From what we can prove, it is an amazing copy of what has already started its way on Android: Fortcraft.

It is a game developed by NetEase Games where both the development and aesthetics of Epic’s work are literally replicated. So, despite being a blatant copy, the values ​​both visually and in the game system are of the highest level. In fact, we have no doubt that you will be taking a slice of the cake precisely because it arrived much earlier than the original.

As announced on the official website, the closed beta of Fortcraft has already started, and we can participate in it. The iOS version limit has already been reached, but we can prove the Android version, although when requesting the Android version it will be necessary to obtain the OBB files independently for its installation.

Regardless, we can play Fortnite Battle Royale free of charge for both PS4 and Xbox One and PC through the Epic Launcher platform.
