With Fortnite's Android Release, Epic Will Skip Google Play

This stands in contrast to the iOS version of Fortnite, which is available to download right from Apple's App Store.

Fake games on the Play Store have been a problem for some time. App research firm Sensor Tower says that from now through the end of the year, Epic's end run around the Play Store will cost Google $50 million or more in lost platform fees.

How to See the Amazing Perseid Meteor Shower in August 2018
Of course, the one other thing you need to view the meteors is clear skies, and we may have those. "So don't rush the process". The Perseids meteor shower will be visible nearly all over the world - but will be best seen in the northern hemisphere.

Thing is, the company that created it, Epic Games, just announced that it won't be publishing it via Google Play, the market where most users - in the Western hemisphere, anyway - get most of their apps.

Malicious developers have already been targeting Android users looking to download Fortnite.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC Price Testing Last Line of Defense Before $6,000
Looking at the 4-hours chart , the price settled below the $6,815 support area and the 21 simple moving average (4-hours). At the time of writing, ETH/USD traded 1.05 percent up at $409.20, hitting day's low of 402.11.

Avoiding Google Play distribution means Epic gets to keep all of the in-app purchase revenue rather than paying 30 percent of it to Google. It's a noble cause and one that the likes of Apple and Facebook are also trying to make headway in, and for whatever reason, Google didn't manage to get it into Android 9 Pie ready for launch day.

Malware could infect Android users looking to play Fortnite in a myriad of ways. The company looked to target two birds with one stone as it upgraded the S-Pen and made sure that Fortnite for Android became an exclusive for the Note 9. And even though a beta version of the game will be made available exclusively to those toting certain high-end Samsung Galaxy models, Fortnite will not be offered to Android users through the Google Play Store. This is likely to deter developers from creating apps with the word "Fortnite" in the title to take advantage of the confusion over the release.
