Fortnite is currently available on multiple platforms like MacOS, Windows, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. However, currently, it is only available on high-end Android devices. The developer of the game is expected to optimize the game later so that users of entry-level Android devices can also play it on their smartphones.
The game is available for free on all these platforms and the users can play the Battle Royal mode or purchase PVE campaign packs. Notably, Fortnite is not officially available on the Google Play store as the developer need to share 30% of the profit with Google. The company did not want to share the profit with Google and hence it can only be downloaded from the official website.
