Epic Games’ Fortnite is now available to play on the Nvidia SHIELD TV, but what does that mean for Android users around the world that are waiting to play the game on their phone?

The new GeForce NOW cloud gaming service for SHIELD TV owners has been rolled out for users across the US. It comes with a range of AAA gaming titles available to be streamed to their Android TV box.


The most notable of these is Fortnite, a game that has taken over the world in 2018 and is also available to play on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and iOS.

Epic Games has promised that an Android version of the game is also on the way but, despite Nvidia’s SHIELD device technically using an Android operating system, the can the GeForce NOW Fortnite experience really be classed as an Android release?


One could, perhaps, argue that the SHIELD TV version of the game is also the first Android version, but the technicalities involved with cloud software mean that you’re probably just playing another version of the game which is then streamed to the SHIELD.

It certainly seems to be a step in the right direction, but we are still no closer to knowing an exact date for the Android release and can only go off of information from previous statements.

Epic Games announced in May that the Android version of Fortnite would be released sometime this summer and the expectation is that it will happen before the end of Season 5, which will occur in September.


Fortnite was released on iOS in March of 2018 and has been a massive success, quickly becoming one of the most played mobile games on the planet and earning Epic Games a great deal of revenue in the process.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
