EDITORS’ REVIEW

The critically acclaimed battle royale Fortnite game has finally made its debut on Android, following the success of its iOS release 4 months earlier. Fortnite for Android offers all the familiar features players have come to love, while allowing for crossplay with anyone on console or PC or iOS device.

PROS

A gentler battle royale: Pretty much keeping the with Fortnite’s lighthearted theme, the mobile version is as cartoonish as the original, focusing on battles and not on the violence or gore.

Cross-platform multiplayer: To balance the gameplay, Android Fortnite will drop players into mobile-only matches, but cross-play will be available if players choose to party with a console or PC user.

Newbies welcome: Taking into account the clunkiness of the touch-based controls, Fortnite features a beginner friendly mode that will auto-fire when the player points their crosshair at an enemy.

High production: Thanks to its AAA budget, you’ll be hard pressed to find another free title as polished with such immense replay value.

Cosmetic-only purchases: Players can buy in-game V-Bucks to purchase costumes, emotes, and other cosmetic skins that provide a high level of customizability but offers no gameplay advantages.
