The Fortnite Android beta has started rolling out

Epic Games is doing something completely different with Fortnite for Android and has bypassed the Google Play store. When users search for "fortnite" on Google Play, they're now presented with a special message reading "Fortnite Battle Royale by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play". Click the big "sign up for email invite" button and on the next page you'll be asked if you've played Fortnite before. You'll find plenty of places you can obsessively check to get a modified.APK onto your device, and your character actually into the game, before Epic closes any workarounds. No word on when the app will be released as well but when it does arrive, you will need to get it from Epic's website.

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. Saying that, part of the direct install process lets you allow this function before actually installing the game.

In closed platforms such as the Xbox or PlayStation, Fortnite is available only through the official stores, the same on iOS with Apple also taking 30 percent of all in-game purchase revenues through the App Store.

"We expect that once Fortnite rolls out to the full complement of supported Android devices, its launch revenue on the platform will closely resemble the first several months of App Store player spending", said Randy Nelson, Head of Mobile Insights at State Tower. Regardless, come Tuesday, you might want to double up on the walls when building a fort, and be a little bit more cautious of this. First, you'll need to check Epic's list of compatible devices.

My advice? Wait a few days until you can play the game, for real, on whatever Android device you own. What type of Android device you're using will determine where and how you install the game. It doesn't point directly to the right place to get Fortnite, which means some kids might still go searching for the game and wind up getting malware instead.
