Fortnite is a massively popular game that’s wildly popular across basically every platform you can game on. But there are some specific quirks for the Android release that you need to know before you play.
Epic Games decided not to release Fortnite through the Google Play Store which means all the traditional advice about only downloading apps from the Play Store kind of goes out the window. You can’t even search for Fortnite in the Google Play Store, as Google just gives you a little message stating “Fortnite Battle Royale by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play”. Salty.
For parents with kids demanding to play Fortnite on their phone or tablet, you need to know that the game is still in beta and is only available on non-Samsung devices via an invitation from Epic Games. You can go to Fortnite’s Android portal and register your email and device to get an invitation but at this point, it’s all a matter of applying and waiting for your download link to the installer.
