It is a game that doesn’t need any introduction. It’s one of the many last-men-standing sandbox shooting games from Epic Games. Fortnite is available on most gaming platforms, including PC. However, there is no easy way for Chromebook users to access the game. That might likely be because of the hardware requirements of the game. 

Steps to Play Fortnite on Chromebook

Fortnite might never come to Google Stadia as the CEO of Epic Games made it clear that Google Stadia lacks a strong user base. However, we do have a better choice. Geforce Now from Nvidia might seem to have implemented Google Stadia the right way. But the only drawback here is that Geforce Now is not available in every part of the globe. So if you’re planning a world tour with your Chromebook, Fortnite might not work even if the hotel Wi-Fi meets the speed requirements. You could also use the Chrome Remote Desktop plugin to access Fortnite from a PC. However, this method might feel stupid as the initial thought is why would someone need a Chromebook if they have a PC to play Fortnite.
