Google just did the right thing with Fortnite on Google Play

Since launching in an invite-only beta on March 15, Epic Games has grossed more than $180M from Fortnite's iOS version. In fact, the message is unique to Fortnite; the store does not list similar messages for other unavailable apps.

After acquiring a skin, a player would then choose a weapon category and then pick which specific gun they want the skin to be on.

We're now enrolled in Fortnite's Android beta, and we'll be sure to bring you our first impressions of the game once we receive the green light. Once they're finished sideloading the launcher app, they should now be able to download the 1.88GB game without a problem.

Epic has been criticized for its decision not to offer Fortnite through the Play Store.

While iPhone users have enjoyed access to PUBG-rival Fortnite, Android smartphone owners have been in isolation. However, underneath this message is a link to the Android version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which is available via Google Play.

Despite the numerous rumors that Fortnite would be a Samsung exclusive for up to four months, Epic Games confirmed that other devices would be able to play the hit game several days after it launched on August 9. Searching for "Fortnite" or "Fortnite Battle Royale" won't get you anywhere. In addition, the method of downloading Fortnite directly from their website appears to pose some potential security risks. The registration requires you to create an Epic Games account or sign in with your existing account if you have played the game previously on a console or iOS device. As 9to5 Google notes, the Fortnite Installer includes a post-installation notification reminding users to "make your device as secure as possible" by disabling the permissions that Fortnite itself required to be installed.

As you can see, the Heavy Sniper Rifle is a beast of a weapon, as it is able to blast structures of different kinds away easily.
