Fortnite has now been officially added to Google Play Store for Android users. Developed by Epic Games, Inc, the game has been on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Switch before coming to Google Android Playstore. In the game, you get to squad up and compete to be the last one standing in Battle Royale, or use your imagination to build your dream Fortnite in Creative.
About a year and half ago, Fortnite was only available for download via a third party app that could be installed from Epic Game’s own website. This was due to the 30% earnings that Google gets from downloaded apps which the company was against and very vocal about. According to the company, the fee charged by Google and Apple for having apps and in-app purchases on their respective app stores was too high.
With increasing pressure by Google making it extremely difficult for non-Play Store apps to flourish, the developer has decided to bring the game to the official Android channel. Check out features of the game below.
