Wait for Fortnite ends on Android unofficially - APK now available

Android users must download the game directly from Epic's own website instead.

Google could miss out on a $50 million payday this year alone as a result of Epic Games' decision not to distribute Fortnite for Android through the Play Store.

If your device isn't on that list, but you're itching to get yourself into a battle royale on your Android device, you might be tempted to download one of the many modified.APKs for Fortnite that are making the rounds right now. Videos such as the one shown above show how tantalisingly close you are to playing a great third-person shooter on your tiny device.

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.

But this isn't going to stop people looking for Fortnite in the Play Store.

What would really be unpleasant, though, is if you (or I) download some kind of malware disguised as a modified Fortnite.APK. However, it arrived in a way that nobody expected - being exclusive to Samsung devices initially and to be made available as a non-Google Play download. As such, the company is taking action, and is showing a warning to anyone who searches for Fortnite in Google Play. What type of Android device you're using will determine where and how you install the game. Following that, an email will be sent to the user containing the link to the Fortnite installer APK file.

According to its developer, Epic Games, players on select Samsung Galaxy devices will be able to "drop in immediately", while access to non-Samsung owners will be rolled out in waves "over the next few days".

Unfortunately, most users won't get past the sign-in process as only invited players will be able to launch the game. Because the game is offered outside of the hardware's main storefront, make sure you are not downloading from anywhere dubious.
