Google Acknowledges Epic’s ‘Fortnite’ Isn’t On The Play Store

Google Acknowledges Epic’s ‘Fortnite’ Isn’t On The Play Store

And not just after the initial download, but for every update as well?

Internet security experts usually urge mobile phone users to only download apps from official stores like Google Play and Apple's App Store. There's only one title (Battle Breakers), and it's not available yet. Videos such as the one shown above show how tantalisingly close you are to playing a great third-person shooter on your tiny device. However, for Android users, that won't be an option.

Epic Games and Samsung also provided a list of devices that will be compatible with Fortnite Beta. You'll leap out of the Battle Bus with a huge grin on your face, get oh-so-close to shooting the first unsuspecting player you see, and have the game quit out within a few seconds of you landing on the ground. Epic has to share 30 percent of those purchases made on iOS devices with Apple due to the terms of the App Store. Here's what you need to have in place to get in on that even if you are using an Essential Phone or OnePlus 6, the two other devices capable of running Android 9 Pie at this time.

Malware could infect Android users looking to play Fortnite in a myriad of ways.

Fortnite finally comes to Android!

By now, everyone who's been paying attention to news about Fortnite on Android knows that it'll only be available via Epic's site after the Samsung exclusivity period ends, and not on the Play Store.

XDA-Developers explains that when people sign up to the beta, their Pixel downloads an app that replaces a placeholder app, making everything work just fine.
