Fortnite for Android goes "off market"

11 August, 2018, 05:38 | Author: Leah Owens
  • Android 9.0 Pie update for Moto E5 Plus

Google does, however, have a beta version of the feature available for anyone who owns a Pixel or Pixel 2 device and is willing to sign up, and thanks to the folks over at XDA-Developers, there is also a way to ignore all that and get it running on other Android 9 Pie devices, too.

Eventually, when the game is officially offered to Android users, they will have to sideload Fortnite through Epic's website.

In response, Google has a new warning on the Play Store letting gamers know that Fortnite is not available. The beta version of the battle royale game is live now for Samsung flagship owners, and will likely see a wider release next week.

The message that pops up says that "Fortnite Battle Royal by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play". The game will appear in the Samsung Game Launcher and in the Galaxy Apps store.

Courtney Smith's lawyer: My client has never been contacted by Ohio State
It is unclear whether or not OSU policy requires a school representative to reach out to the alleged victim in a case like this. Leveridge's statement was also apparently a response to accusations against her client, attacking Courtney Smith's credibility.

Because there are no Android servers yet, this is the only way for Android players to get into a live game now.

Malicious developers have already been targeting Android users looking to download Fortnite. In just one year, it's amassed 125 million players including celebrities like Drake, Joe Jonas, Finn Wolfhard, and even Roseanne Barr.

Just fire up the Play Store on your phone, and search for "Fortnite Mobile" or some variation on the name to get the message.

Avoiding Google Play distribution means Epic gets to keep all of the in-app purchase revenue rather than paying 30 percent of it to Google. The company looked to target two birds with one stone as it upgraded the S-Pen and made sure that Fortnite for Android became an exclusive for the Note 9. Following Fortnite's success on Android other game developers will also follow suit.
