APK now available: Wait for Fortnite ends on Android unofficially

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

However, you'll have to jump through a few hoops before you can jump from the battle bus.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC, as well as iOS and, now, Android devices.

Despite the numerous rumors that Fortnite would be a Samsung exclusive for up to four months, Epic Games confirmed that other devices would be able to play the hit game several days after it launched on August 9. Google has already taken the unusual step to remind users searching for Fortnite on the Play Store that they won't find it there, and now Epic Games is prompting users to remain safe, too. The app still won't be available in the Google Play store when it does release. Those include the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Tab S3, and the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4.

LG: G5, G6, G7 ThinQ, V20, V30 / V30+. 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. Of course, the company has measures in place that are supposed to stop fake versions of apps making their way to the store - or at least getting them removed quickly - but we've seen time and time again that these measures fail, thereby putting Android users at risk. From there, search for Fortnite and download the installer.

Had the game been distributed through the Play Store, then, Google could have pocketed upwards of $54 million- roughly the same amount Apple has made from Fortnite so far. Users can add their name to Fortnite's wait list and will receive an email when a slot opens up for them. The Android option is now not available, but it is only a matter of days until it does. Navigate to the location where the APK file is placed and tap on it to install. From there, you'll be able to start playing.

Interested people can head over to Fortnite's website and register for the beta version of Fortnite on Android. According to a report from SensorTower, Google could lose out on $50 million or more in fees.

App store intelligence firm Sensor Tower says that Apple earned about Dollars 54 million from Fortnite, through its general 30 percent cut of all in-app purchases that happen on any app in its store. However, this process will limit the game to "recent high-end Android smartphone [s]".

With a 30MB size and certain limitations such as 40 players and a smaller map, PUBG Mobile Lite will still manage to get many players on board.
