Check out the trippy (and super elite) Galaxy skin for Fortnite
- Samsung is offering a Galaxy skin for Fortnite on Android.
- The Galaxy skin makes your character look a trippy god from outer space.
- Fortnite players using a Galaxy Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4 have exclusive access to the Galaxy skin.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 finally hit store shelves on Friday. While the device is certainly a beast when it comes to specs (and its sheer size), it’s also going to allow gamers to unleash their own kind of beast in the form of an exclusive Galaxy skin for Fortnite on Android.
The Galaxy skin for Fortnite is an exclusive for owners of the Note 9 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, which as of right now are the most expensive phone and tablet respectively in Samsung’s roster.
With the release of the Note 9 last week, we now have our first actual look at what the Galaxy skin looks like on your Fortnite character. In brief, you look like a trippy space god.
See for yourself in the screenshot below:
To get the Galaxy skin for Fortnite, you’ll need to install Fortnite on your Galaxy Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4 by visiting the Galaxy Apps store. Don’t go looking for Fortnite on the Google Play Store — it’s not there.
Once you have installed Fortnite via the Galaxy Apps store and logged in, open the game up and play three rounds. It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, you just need to complete three games before you can get the skin.
Once you’ve completed your three rounds, within 24 — 48 hours you’ll receive a gift box in-game that will contain your Galaxy skin.
Samsung says you can only get one skin per device, which means if you own both a Note 9 and a Tab S4 you could feasibly have two Fortnite accounts with the Galaxy skin.
As of right now, Samsung is keeping the Galaxy skin for Fortnite exclusive to just Note 9 and Tab S4 owners, but who knows: it could offer the skin to other Samsung devices at some point in the future.
