How do I get Fortnite on my Samsung Galaxy device?

Note that this is currently a beta version and only available on compatible devices. Developer Epic Games has announced that they do not intend to make Fortnite available via the Google Play Store.

Fortnite is being rolled out for Android, with Samsung users getting first shot at playing the popular game.
