Fortnite’s meteoric rise to prominence has established it as one of the most played Battle Royale titles of all time. Find out how to get your hands on the free-to-play game on PC, PS4, and Xbox.
For those who are able to do so, Fortnite may be downloaded and played on Macs, PCs, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
One potential drawback is that your internet service may have a data cap. The greatest option, in that case, would be to borrow someone else’s unlimited subscription and utilize it there.
The game is between 9 and 15 GB in size, making it impractical for users with restricted data plans to download.
Here are some of the platforms you can use to play Fortnite if you don’t have this issue or know how to fix it.
PC & Mac
In case you hadn’t heard, neither Mac nor PC players can currently get Fortnite via Steam’s digital distribution platform.
Fans of Fortnite, instead of going to the typical outlets, should visit the official Epic Games site to download a free copy of the game.
Fans of the PC or Mac release will have to sign up for an Epic Games account, complete with a working email address and password.
For some goods made available through the Epic Games launcher, Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 or later is required.
Technical Requirements For Fortnite:
Advised Hardware and Software Requirements:
- Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU
- 2 GB VRAM
- Core i5 2.8 GHz
- 8 GB RAM
- Windows 7/8/10 64-bit
Minimum Hardware and Software Requirements:

- Core i3 2.4 GHz
- 4 GB RAM

The game’s original PvE Save the World mode is available as one of the many available game modes.
Fortnite will continue to be available for no cost if you’re not into that sort of heroism. However, Save The World will become free-to-play later this year, so holding off might be worthwhile.
While Epic Games has made the game available for all of the above platforms, cross-platform play is not currently an option.
In Fortnite: Battle Royale, “there is no cross-play.” In other words, PC and PS4 players can advance together, as explained by Epic Games.
To allow cross-progression, you must connect your Epic Games ID to your PS4 account.
Your PS4 progress will be deleted if you link your PS4 and Epic accounts. If you’re having trouble making progress, please contact player support.
PS4 players can jump into Fortnite without shelling out for a PlayStation Plus membership, as the game is available for free.
You may download Fortnite from the PlayStation Store on your PS4 system, or you can click here to go directly to the store.
In order to play, you’ll need a minimum save size of 10GB, although the official Fortnite page says the game uses little under 7GB of space.
Even though Fortnite is free to play on Xbox One and Xbox One X, a Games with Gold membership is required to access the game.
The game can be located by utilizing the Xbox Store’s search bar to locate the specific title, which can be accessed by scrolling to the right on the website.
You can also use the download link below to find the Microsoft Store page on your browser.
The game’s official page claims it has a weight of just under 9GB and is an Xbox One X enhanced title as of the time of publication.
