  • Fortnite for Android reminds users to be safe, and to block installation from unknown sources

The launch of Fortnite on Android coincided with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S9 last week.

Epic Games has had awesome successes where the iOS platform is concerned with the globally popular Fortnite title.

Interested people can head over to Fortnite's website and register for the beta version of Fortnite on Android.

A tweet sent today by Fortnite's Twitter account reveals that the first batch of invitations to sideload the game has gone out today to non- Samsung Galaxy Android phones.

Turkish lira crisis gets worse with fresh 11% plunge
Last week, a Turkish delegation went to Washington and met with US counterparts, but there was no breakthrough. In speeches Sunday, Erdogan remained defiant, vowing never to give in on interest-rate hikes.

A dispute between Google and Epic Games over the fees Google charges to distribute apps on its platform meant Epic Games chose to sell the game their own way. Plus, distributing "Fortnite" on its own lets Epic avoid Google's 30% cut. This is likely the result of the algorithmically derived similarity between the games and not a specific, manually inserted dig at Epic's similar game.

In a recent Q&A, Epic said it believes gamers will "benefit from competition among software sources on Android".

Researchers add that Epic Games could be swarmed by complaints from users who want to play the game, safely download it, or are not aware of installing APKs on their phones.

It doesn't change the security model and how Epic's distribution fits within it, but it does remind users to make sure their devices are protected as much as they can be. The warning also does not appear when searching the Google Play store through a Web browser. Of course, the company has measures in place that are supposed to stop fake versions of apps making their way to the store - or at least getting them removed quickly - but we've seen time and time again that these measures fail, thereby putting Android users at risk. Searchers are also advised that Fortnite rival PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is available to download.
