Download Fortnite on Android
I can’t find Fortnite anywhere in the Google Play Store! Epic still doesn’t sell Fortnite under the regular Android app store Google Play. The reason for this is that Epic doesn’t feel like paying 30 percent royalties to Google.
Where can I download Fortnite for Android? If you want Fortnite on your Android device, you need to download the game directly from Epic. You can either go to Fortnite’s homepage or use the QR code on this picture here.
In order to install the app, however, you must first activate the corresponding option to install third-party apps on your device.
Beware of scammers! Since the Fortnite app doesn’t come from the Google Play Shop, there are many scammers who want to sell you wrong versions full of viruses. Often these offers lure you with free V bucks and goodies.
But these offers are fake. Only use the official Epic site if you want to download Fortnite on Android.
