According to XDA-Developers code shows that the Android version of Fortnite comes through Samsung’s own app store. Earlier there was already a rumor that after release the game is available exclusively for the Note 9 for a month. That would also apply to the new Galaxy Tab S4.

XDA reports having obtained an apk file with an installer for Fortnite version 5.20, which is going live on other platforms this week. The apk and all required game files can be downloaded and installed, but the game only works on those accounts that have been approved by Epic Games. It seems that users of the Samsung Galaxy S7, S8 and S9 and the Note 8 can get the game after the release, but can only play it after thirty days.

According to XDA, the Android version of Fortnite checks whether the user has a Samsung device, and specifically whether it is a variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. We also check for the presence of an S Pen; perhaps to use in the game, but it is also possible that this is done to prevent Fortnite from being played in the first 30 days on a device other than the Note 9 or the Tab S4.

It is assumed that Fortnite for Android will soon be released; Epic Games announced earlier that at least this summer will happen. The developer will not offer the Android version via the Play Store , but via his own website. Epic Games says that among other things to do with financial considerations, so that the company does not have to give 30 percent of the revenue to Google.
