Fortnite for Android is coming this month, and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will also launch with Fortnite Android Version APK preinstalled in it. As per one of the online sources have stated that Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will offer the exclusive full fortnite game access to its buyers for almost 30 days period as part of their promotional partnership with each other.
Additionally, 9to5google.com also stated that those who will pre-order Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will also get extra goodies for fortnite game including free v bucks worth up to $150 as an in-game currency to use. However, this news has not been confirmed yet either by Epic Games or Samsung.
Also, the exact release date for the launching of fortnite for android is still not confirmed from Epic Games, hence we should expect this by the end of this month anyhow. XDA-Developers, another source that has reported that as a part of the promotional strategies between Samsung and Epic Games, the initial launch of fortnite for android devices application version will only be compatible with Samsung’s latest launched devices only; like Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4.
Additionally, you will be unable to download fortnite for android devices from Google Play Store for now. Because there is another issue flexing its muscles between Google Play Store and Epic Games on sharing the sale revenue between both of them. Google applies taxes on game developers whenever their game is downloaded/sold on Google Play Store. Usually this ratio is 30/70 i.e. 30% with Google and 70% with game developers.
However, Epic’s CEO Tim Sweeney stated in an online interview to the well know portal The Verge, that they are going to skip the 30% revenue with Google by just launching their Fortnite for Android APK from epicgames.com. He further said, “The great thing about the Internet and the digital revolution is that this is possible, now that physical storefronts and middlemen distributors are no longer required.”
Beware From Scammers:
Since Epic Games will launch the android version of fortnite game on their own website, still the release date is not confirmed. This situation has alerted lots of online scammers and they are now actively circulating FAKE apk’s of android version of fortnite game on various portals including YouTube and Google Play Store itself. Unless the original copy of the game is released by Epic Games, the users are definitely in the risk of downloading the fake one on their mobile which may contain malwares and could damage user’s devices intentionally.
