To install Fortnite, you first have to download it. How to download Fortnite can be found in ” Where can I download Fortnite? “.
PC (Microsoft Windows)
If you follow all the steps in “Where can I download Fortnite?” noticed, you should have received a .msi file. Execute the .msi file with a mouse click to open the installation wizard. The .msi file should have an approximate file size of less than 50MB. Now a new window should have appeared. Here you need to install the Epic Games Launcher, which is necessary for playing Fortnite.
You can choose where to install the Epic Games Launcher, either keep the location or change it to a location of your choice.
Tip: Install Fortnite, if available, on your SSD for faster startup and faster load times. If you do not have SSD, you can of course also install Fortnite on your HDD. Click the “Install” button to install the Epic Games Launcher.
You need administrator rights for this process. You may have to confirm your choice with “Yes” again. Now you have to wait a little while to complete the setup for the Epic Games Launcher. You may have to install an update now. If you have done all this, the Epic Games Launcher should open automatically. All you have to do is enter your credentials into the Epic Games website. Click on the “Login” button and wait until you’re logged in to Game Launcher. Now click on the upper tab “Fortnite” and then on the button “Install”.
It should now open a new window with the End User License Agreement, which you must accept to play Fortnite. Alternatively you can confirm it later. Now you can decide again on which file path and folder Fortnite should be saved. You can also decide if you want Fortnite to update itself automatically or not. If you leave the check mark, a new Fortnite version will always be downloaded without your renewed agreement.
On the one hand, that’s good, because you can always start playing right away, but on the other hand, it’s bad, because it unlawfully consumes bandwidth. On the right, you can enable alternative installation options, such as the “Save the World” campaign or additional language packs. Now click on the “Install” button, the installation process can take a few hours, depending on how fast your Internet is.
