Google Play warns searchers that Fortnite "is not available"

Syndicate Post image

Things are a bit easier for you if you've got a Samsung device.

Since launching in an invite-only beta on March 15, Epic Games has grossed more than $180M from Fortnite's iOS version.

As Epic noted in an FAQ with Eurogamer last week, "open platforms are an expression of freedom: the freedom of users to install the software they choose, and the freedom of developers to release software as they wish". Videos such as the one shown above show how tantalisingly close you are to playing a great third-person shooter on your tiny device.

And if you're still not sure if Fortnite Battle Royale will run properly on your device, Epic notes there might be hope yet assuming your phone or tablet runs Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher on a 64-bit processor and has at least 3GB of RAM and Adreno 530, Mali-G71 MP20, or Mali-G72 MP12 or better graphics. In addition, the method of downloading Fortnite directly from their website appears to pose some potential security risks.

The first was the result of an absolutely stunning away swinger that bowled Murali Vijay off the fifth ball of the day. Such scrambled thinking then did for Pujara after India's No3 set off for a single in Anderson's next over.

Once the APK file is installed, it will install Fortnite on your device. Yes, that's right - Epic has the ability to not only ban accounts but can also pull unique device identifiers and make sure that those devices can't access its server. However, Twitter account @FortniteBR has given fans an inside look at both the epic and legendary versions. The Android operating system allows users to download programs from third party services unlike the iOS, which restricts app downloads to the App Store only.

As you can see, the Heavy Sniper Rifle is a beast of a weapon, as it is able to blast structures of different kinds away easily. The app still won't be available in the Google Play store when it does release.

That's the message you'll get if you type "Fortnite" into the Google Play Store on your Android device today.

Fortnite is available on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
