Finally! Though Fortnite has been available on iOS devices for awhile now, it's now Android users' time to jump into the game! The team over at Epic Games and Samsung announced the good word during Samsung Unpacked 2018 — though there is a catch. It won't be available for all Android users just yet, only those with a Samsung Galaxy. That being said, Samsung users have a pretty nifty Galaxy exclusive skin that we leaked earlier this week!

Here's what you need to know about the latest beta and the new skin. Firstly, the Android beta is only available for Samsung Galaxy users at this time, though it will roll out for all at a later date. To get that shiny new skin, it will only be available for those that purchased a brand new Samsung Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4 — a bummer for those that already have a Galaxy device, but nice to know that Galaxy users have first dibs.
