Get Fortnite back on your Android devices.
Fortnite is one of the most popular battle royale games available on the market and is available to play on Windows/Mac, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo. It was available to download on mobile devices from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, but after a major violation by Epic Games, the respective app store owners removed Fortnite from the store.
Now if you go to the App Store or the Google Play Store and search Fortnite, you won’t be able to find the game. Instead, there will be third-party software or other sources that aren’t the actual game. Epic Games has made it clear that Fortnite can only be downloaded on Android devices via their official website, or if you have a Samsung android device, then you can download it through Samsung’s Galaxy Store.
If you have an Android device and want to install Fortnite, here are the steps to download:
