Fortnite mobile is the long-awaited release of the massively popular game and it’s finally here. That’s right Fortnite on mobile. The runaway success of the Epic’s Battle Royale shooter, which sees 100 players duke it out on an island map to be the last fighter standing. Thankfully, Fortnite’s cartoonish art style also lets it downscale easily to smartphone screens, which have never been more capable of competitive online gaming – with an aim-assist option for mobile players mourning the loss of detail at that smaller size. Though Fortnite was available for iOS since March, recently Android version also came out. This game is available in the App store for iOS devices but it is not available in the Google Play Store for Android devices. This is partially to ‘build a direct relationship with players’ but may have more to do with not giving Google a 30% cut on Fortnite app purchases.
So you might think of how to download and play this game on Android devices. There are plenty of malware scams posing as Fortnite apps right now.
