Fortnite for Android reminds users to be safe, and to block installation from unknown sources

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.

As of its Android launch date, Fortnite had grossed over $180 million on iOS devices, where it had been exclusively available since launching as an invite-only beta on March 15th, before later expanding to all App Store customers.

As Epic Games made a decision to skip the Play Store, users will need to first download the Fortnite launcher from the company's website. When downloading apps from the Play Store, it's usually only a matter of tapping the download button, confirming payment if necessary, and the download is processed. "The strength of the buzz around Fortnite means it should be able to overcome the hurdle of getting core users to download outside Google Play, but it will also need to ensure a smooth and trusted payment process".

Epic Games has taken the somewhat unusual move of distributing the mobile-version of its popular Fortnite title through its own website, potentially saving up to $50 million according to app economy analyst firm State Tower. In fact, they may not even know that you can get Android apps outside of the Play Store.

Meanwhile, there have been concerns that the download makes it more hard on users with older Android devices to access the game, because the process for sideloading apps isn't as straightforward. Here's all the compatible Android devices.

Some Android users have reported having issues with 4GB devices and poor performance. Once the installation completes, users will be able to sign in and start playing. The app still won't be available in the Google Play store when it does release. If you're a fan of Fortnite, you've been waiting for this news.

To bypass the limitations of Epic Games is preparing a separate page to download Fortnite Battle Royale bypassing Google Play. Fortunately, after the buzz surrounding the recently-announced Samsung Galaxy Note 9 subsided a bit, Fortnite is now coming to other phones as well, though the invite-only aspect is still at play.
