Earlier this month, Samsung announced that with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Epic Games would also be launching the Fortnite Beta for Android. People who ordered the new smartphone between August 10 and August 23, received a special offer: a choice between an AKG noise-canceling headset or 15,000 V-dollar and an exclusive Galaxy Fortnite skin. Although that offer is no longer available, there is another way in which players can unlock and redeem this rare cosmetic item.
Unlock the Galaxy skin without a pre-order
First you need a Galaxy Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4. These are the only Samsung products that are eligible for the offer and pre-ordering is not required. It is important to know that Samsung has limited the offer to one skin per mobile device, which means that if your friend has already redeemed the skin on their eligible phone or tablet, you can no longer use it.
Then you can download Fortnite from Galaxy Apps in your Samsung folder. You can find the banner for it on the GAMES tab in the store. Tap the banner and select INSTALL & OPEN. Agree to the terms and conditions to complete the installation of the game. You also need an Epic Games account to log in.
Play three games from Fortnite on your phone as soon as the game is active. It doesn't matter if you win or lose the games ̵
After you have completed everything listed above, wait one to two days and receive a gift box with the Fortnite Galaxy skin in it!
Yes, you need a Galaxy phone
At present, owning a Galaxy Note 9 or Tab S4 is the only way to get this psychedelic item with a space theme. Who knew that players would have to spend more than $ 600 to get an exclusive skin? Although this does not count technically as a micro transaction, this raises the question: do players really like loot boxes and other forms of buying in-game items?
Epic Games did not specify whether the availability of this skin will change after a while. If you can't get hold of the Galaxy skin, don't sweat it too much! Exclusive cosmetic items are on the rise in Fortnite, especially with the release on various game platforms, so there will be many more options to get a cool, rare skin for your collection.
