Since its launch on Android in 2018, Fortnite has become one of the most popular mobile games of all time, despite its limited availability at first. Epic Games, developer of the title, not only decided not to use Google Play as a way of distributing its game on Android , but the list of compatible terminals was not too numerous until a few months after the arrival of the game.
Even today, there are many people who cannot play Fortnite on their Android phones because they do not have a compatible mobile game. However, there are options to install and play Fortnite on those Android devices that are not part of the official list of compatible terminals.
Playing Fortnite on unsupported phones is possible
In order to install and run Fortnite on an unsupported device, it is necessary to use an unofficial APK of the game . From the XDA-Developers portal they offer us a variant in which the compatibility check system of the device has been removed , so that the game can be run despite not including support for the terminal in question.
This, among other things, implies that the game will not be optimized for your mobile hardware . In addition, it is necessary to meet a series of requirements to enjoy the game:
- Have a mobile with ARM64 architecture.
- Having first uninstalled the original Fortnite app.
- Have a version equal to or greater than OpenGL 3 – you can check it with the OpenGL Info app -.
On the other hand, we must also bear in mind that it is an app signed by the creator of the “mod”, and not by Epic Games . This could cause the developer to take account blocking actions towards players who take advantage of this solution. Therefore, it may be a good idea to create an alternative account to our main account to avoid problems.
That said, all you need to do to play Fortnite on an unsupported Android mobile is to download and install the application through the link under these lines. At the time of writing these lines, the version of the game available in the mod corresponds to the delivery 7.30.0-4821335, and the person in charge of making the modifications ensures to continue offering support for the future versions of the game, which will be hosted in the same folder that we link.
