How to play Fortnite on Linux Mint 20


Today we are looking at how to play Fortnite on Linux Mint 20.  On the 18th of August Nvidia announced that GeForce Now is available for Chromebooks and now Google, as far as I know, Google created the way itself, made a way that this way will not only work on Chromebooks but on all Chrome Browsers including on Linux!

So in this tutorial, we show you how to do it on Linux Mint 20.  Firstly we download and install Google Chrome,  then we add a Chrome extension to it,  then we create a profile inside the extension, as seen in the video,  then we close and open Chrome and connect to the profile via the extension,  then we create a free or paid account of GeForce Now,  then we create a free epics games account and add Fortnite to our Epics library.  Lastly, we open GeForce Now, login, and play Fortnite!


Ps.  GeForce Now is a cloud gaming platform, so you play through the internet so you need a decent connection.  If you are in a country where GeForce Now is not available yet, you can use this free VPN.  We already had free accounts for all these applications so we didn't show how to create it.
