Purchases on Fortnite outside of Play Store Could Cost Google & Parents

Last week, Epic Games announced it was bringing Fortnite to Android, making it first available exclusively for Samsung users.

It's no longer a requirement to own a Samsung Galaxy device in order to get into the Fortnite Android beta program. You can't play the game until you get that invite code from Epic Games and there is no guarantee you will get a code. Well, if you've played Fortnite before all of your progress and purchases will be retrieved while you install Fortnite on your Android phone.

As previously reported, Fortnite: Battle Royale on Android devices will be ditching the Google Play Store when it launches, but plenty of players players must have missed that memo. As such, players of "Fortnite Android" will not be afforded the same level of protection that Android users can usually expect. The company believes that the game is famous enough to draw more players to its website, however, many game apps do not have the option to make the same choice.

PC users can readily download Fortnite directly from the Epic Games website, and Epic are taking the fearless choice of a similar route with Android, meaning Google becomes the victim of allowing its users the freedom to choose to install APK files from Unknown Sources.

Once you know you have a compatible handset, you need to head on over to the sign up page to register.

Some Android users have reported having issues with 4GB devices and poor performance.

What would really be unpleasant, though, is if you (or I) download some kind of malware disguised as a modified Fortnite.APK. Once you've done that, you're going to have to play the waiting game. The warning also does not appear when searching the Google Play store through a Web browser. Epic Games is sending out codes in waves, which could mean that hundreds, possibly thousands, of people are receiving codes every day. What type of Android device you're using will determine where and how you install the game. Well, these are some smartphones that are officially supported by EPIC games and can easily run Fortnite.
