Even though Fortnite isn’t available in the Google Play Store, you can install it on your own. And with the new season getting underway, you can also update things, too.

If the Epic Games Launcher isn’t your style, or if you happen to own a Samsung device, you can go about installing and managing in a different way. Downloading it from the Samsung Galaxy Store means you will get all updates from Epic Games without having to worry about any ongoing lawsuits between Epic Games, Apple, and/or the Google Play Store.

Don’t miss out on the new season – install Fortnite from the Samsung Galaxy Store right now!


All you really need is a Samsung device that has the Samsung Galaxy Store installed on it.

Open up the Samsung Galaxy Store, and you should see Fortnite at the front page. If you don’t you can manually search for it.

Once you have found Fortnite, tap on it, and choose Install.

The download will be quick and once done, will prompt you to Open the app.

Once the app is open, tap on the Fortnite tile.

You will now see an option to Launch the game. Tap on it.

You will now be prompted to log in to your Epic Games Account.

Choose Yes, Find my account, followed by the method of login you use to access Fortnite, but the most common is Epic Games

After you get past that, there will be a screen that will tell you to install the game and telling you the game size. Tap on it, and keep the screen awake during the whole process, otherwise, your download will reset.

Once the download is complete, it will automatically install the game. After that’s done, the game should automatically launch.  Additionally, you can press the Play button on the screen.

You can also enable the toggle below the Play button to automatically launch the game when you boot the app.

Once the game is installed, depending on if the servers are up yet or not, you can now play the game.
