Nvidia Method

  1. Visit
  2. Log in, or Register for free.
  3. Type in ‘Fortnite’ in the search bar.
  4. Select Fortnite.
  5. Press play.
  6. Link your Epic Games account.
  7. Access the game through you Nvidia games collection.

Fair warning though: even though this is the simpler method, when using a free GeForce account, you will only get 1 hour of playing time before you’ll need to re-launch the session.

This means that you will need to carefully time your matches, or you can be kicked during a match as well. Then again, you can pay $100 for a year of unlimited access to GeForce Now, but that is a steep price.

Opt for whichever method suits you the best. Or, you know… play Fortnite on a PC.
