Since the world’s most popular game has been out for iOS devices and even the Nintendo Switch for some time now, Android-owners are finally getting what thousands of other players have been able to experience on their mobile and handheld devices. The Fortnite Battle Royale Open Beta will be launching this week for Android devices, and some Android players will even be able to gain access to an exclusive skin.
