The insanely popular battle royale game Fortnite seems to keep having serious trouble. After being removed from Apple’s App Store due to violation of the stores’ guidelines by Epic Store, it’s now time for another major platform to get rid of Fortnite. Android users are no longer able to download the game from the Google Play Store.
However, those willing to play Fortnite still have the option of downloading the game from the Epic Store. Google justifies its decision of removing Fortnite from the Play Store by the following statement:
The open Android ecosystem lets developers distribute apps through multiple app stores. For game developers who choose to use the Play Store, we have consistent policies that are fair to developers and keep the store safe for users. While Fortnite remains available on Android, we can no longer make it available on Play because it violates our policies. However, we welcome the opportunity to continue our discussions with Epic and bring Fortnite back to Google Play.
Otherwise, the highly popular battle royale game Fortnite is available for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows PC, and Classic Mac OS. The game is pretty much the same on all platforms, and it grants the player the possibility to train his gaming skills in various modes and compete with friends. If you like the idea of getting involved in a virtual arena where you have the utmost freedom of taking down your opponents as you wish, Fortnite is worth giving a try.
Fortnite was developed by Epic Games and released in 2017. The title is available in three main game modes that share the same game engine. Fortnite Battle Royale is the most famous, featuring a free-to-play battle royale game where there’s a maximum amount of up to 100 players allowed. The other two modes are Fortnite Creative and Save the World.
