"Fortnite Battle Royale" amassed 125 million players on June 12 -- the day it was released on Nintendo Switch. Today, the popular battle royale game was released on Android, and many players have already downloaded it. Considering that there are over two billion active Android users in the world and that the game keeps getting more popular on each platform, one can expect the "Fortnite" player base to double by the end of 2018.

Unlike many other games and applications for Android, "Fortnite Battle Royale" cannot be downloaded through Google Play.

Epic Games created a standalone application that can be downloaded through their official website, avoiding the 30 percent fee from Google and having more control over the game.

How to get the game

In order to download the video game on your Android device, visit Fortnite.com/Android on your mobile browser. If your phone is supported, you will either be asked to sign up for an invite or be asked to download the game directly on your device. To install the game successfully, Android users will have to allow the installation of applications from unknown sources.

At the moment, only Samsung Galaxy users can play the Android version of "Fortnite Battle Royale." The game can be played on the following Galaxy devices:

Android users that don't have a Samsung device can apply for an invite.
