Insanely popular battle royale title, Fortnite, has been out on iOS devices for some time now, and while some Android users have been playing via the game’s beta, Epic Games today announced it will now be available to all users on the platform.
Previously, you needed an invite to the beta to play on Android devices, but now that it’s open to everyone, you’ll be able to install it via the Fortnite website. Don’t bother searching in the Google Play store, though, it’s not there, which is something Google chucked a bit of a tanty about earlier this year. Epic self-released Fortnite this way to cheekily avoid Google’s fees, which of course, denies the tech giant a pretty sizable chunk of revenue, seeing as the mobile game is stupidly popular.
