Create an Epic Games account

Epic Games

If the Huawei smartphone (or tablet) in your possession supports Fortnite , before explaining how to download the game on your device, I must inform you that, as a prerequisite, you must create a free Epic Games account , in order to synchronize online the progress you will make in the game.

To do this, connect to the official Fortnite website and, in the screen that is shown to you, press the icon  located in the upper right corner. Then, in the menu that is shown to you, tap on the item Log in .

Once this is done, press on the item No , when you will be asked if you already play Fortnite . In this way, you will be shown the next form dedicated to registering an account.

Then fill in the text fields dedicated to registration, in order to indicate all the information requested from it ( name, surname, display name, email  and  password ), affix the check mark on the box  I have read and accepted: conditions of service , pass the captcha (ticking the I’m not a robot box ) and press the Create account button .

Alternatively, you can register even faster, pressing one of the buttons that are shown to you, such as that of Facebook or that of Google . To end the registration, then press the Verify email button found in the confirmation email received from Epic Games at the email address you provided.

In case of doubts or problems related to the procedure just explained, refer to my tutorial in which I speak to you in detail about how to create an Epic Games account .

Download Fortnite to Huawei

Once you’ve created an Epic Games account, you can move on to the Fortnite download. If, therefore, your device has a Play Store , open the latter (by pressing the colored ▶ ︎ icon which you can find on the home screen or in the app drawer), search for Fortnite and proceed with the installation of the game, simply by pressing on its icon and then on the Install button . If you don’t find Fortnite in the Play Store, visit this direct link from your device or proceed through the other solutions that I am about to suggest.

In order to download Fortnite on a Huawei terminal without Play Store, you must first carry out a preliminary procedure that requires activating the possibility of installing apps from unknown sources. To proceed, then open the Settings app located on the home screen of your device, by tapping on its gear icon . Once this is done, go to the Security and privacy menu > Other settings> Install apps from external sources , press on File management and move the lever located next to the word Allow the installation of apps to ON, to authorize Huawei’s default File Manager application to install apps not from the Play Store .

Alternatively, you can authorize another file manager app, such as Google files , or directly the browser, such as Google Chrome . If you have any doubts or problems at this stage, read my guide on how to install APK files .

Android settings

At this point, you can proceed to download Fortnite . If you own a Huawei device with AppGallery and Huawei Mobile Services , you can download Fortnite through the Fortnite Installer tool available on the Huawei store , simply by downloading it, starting it and then following the instructions on the screen.

If you do not have AppGallery, connect instead to the official website of the game and, in the screen that is shown to you, tap first on the Play now button and then on Play for free now and Download .

Then press OK to authorize the browser to download the APK file called Fortniteinstaller-xxx.apk and wait for the download to finish. At this point, launch the previously authorized Huawei File Manager app and press on the Fortnite APK file , to start the game installation.

To install Fortnite on Huawei, then tap on the Install button and then on Open . Then wait for the game to start and authorize the archiving of the files by pressing the Continue and Allow buttons . Once this is done, if the download of the files required for the installation does not start automatically, also press the Install button .

To finish the installation of Fortnite, you will be asked again to authorize the installation of the game: then press on the item Settings , move the lever to ON in the item Allow the installation of the app and press the Install button . At the end of the installation, start the game by pressing the Open button .
