Fortnite’s creators are trying to resolve an issue affecting some Android devices running the game’s newly released beta. If you own a different brand of phone, you may want to check the full list of supported devices over at Epic Games’ website.
As Fortnite is still in beta on Android, Epic Games isn’t prepared for the large number of Android players that would jump into the game if it was available for everyone.
That doesn’t mean those of you who don’t favour Samsung’s Android phones can’t get in on the mobile action. 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. This is very likely to be automatically generated by Google’s search algorithms, rather than any attempt on Google’s part to direct potential customers elsewhere; the game was the top result prior to the announcement of the beta as well. That’s it you will now get an email that will guide you to install Fortnite. In any transaction in Fortnite Battle Royale, the company would have to give Google 30% of income.
PC users can readily download Fortnite directly from the Epic Games website, and Epic are taking the courageous choice of a similar route with Android, meaning Google becomes the victim of allowing its users the freedom to choose to install APK files from Unknown Sources.
One of the best things about being a Fortnite fan is the fact that you don’t have to wait that long until dataminers manage to find out information about upcoming features. Once you’ve done that, you’re going to have to play the waiting game.
Save the world is the original form of the game and is now not available to play as part of the free-to-download game, instead it comes as part of a £30 ($40) extra. Since its introduction, the game has grossed more than $180 million on Apple’s devices. If you do it this way, you will need to make sure your phone is able to install apps downloaded from your mobile browser. It’s worth pointing out that this is an early version of the Android app.
