Epic Games have finally made the game officially available for android. In the beginning, when the game was launched, it was available only for Samsung users. Then when Epic games tried to make it available for all android phones Google demanded them for 30% of what they make from In-App purchases. This made them lose their nerve and they started operating on other platforms other than Play store.

Now after 18 long months, Epic games and Google have come into a truce and it’s available in Play store for download.
Epic Games have officially announced the Fortnite game on their Twitter handle. Initially, when you first download the size of the game will be 107MB, then later when you enter the game, an additional file of whopping 7.4GB will have to be downloaded in case of Android, and 224.5MB initially and 4.11GB additional file has to be downloaded in case of IOS. So be ready for that, clear up the files and make dome space for the game.
