APK now available: Wait for Fortnite ends on Android unofficially”

Searching for "Fortnite" or "Fortnite Battle Royale" won't get you anywhere.

Fortnite for Android isn't on the Play Store, and Google is making sure that everyone interested in the game knows it.

It was nearly three weeks ago that Fortnite fans caught wind that a new sniper rifle weapon was nearing release, with Epic Games finally confirming its impending arrival today. However, underneath this message is a link to the Android version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which is available via Google Play. The registration requires you to create an Epic Games account or sign in with your existing account if you have played the game previously on a console or iOS device. But it appears Epic also realizes the potential security holes this method could open up for Android users.

Once the APK file is installed, it will install Fortnite on your device. But as rumours anticipated, Fortnite Beta on Android finally arrived with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but it's not entirely exclusive as expected.

Interested people can head over to Fortnite's website and register for the beta version of Fortnite on Android.

At this point, whether you're a gamer or not, there's a good chance that you've at least heard about Fortnite. If you own a different brand of phone, you may want to check the full list of supported devices over at Epic Games' website. After downloading the game, the game posts a notification to users reminding them to; "make their device as secure as possible"; by disabling the permission settings which had to be changed to allow the game to be downloaded in the first place. This equates to over $54M in revenue for Apple, according to Sensor Tower's estimate, which is based off of Apple's 30% cut of all in-app spending on games sold on the App Store. It is interesting to see how the PUBG vs Fortnite battle pans out now that both games are pretty much available on all platforms.
