Here is how you can play Fortnite Season 4 on Android smartphones after the ban?
Previously we reported Fortnite owner Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Google and Apple for being removed from the respective app stores. Tim Sweeney of Epic Games has filed the private antitrust suit against both Apple and Google for charging 30% commission for the in-game earnings. In the meantime, both Google and Apple have booted out Epic Games’ Fortnite game from their respective App stores.
It was noted that Google reportedly removed Fortnite from its Google Play Store just hours later Apple kicked it from its App Store. Going further with the reports it was known that Google and Apple removed the popular game from their respective stores as Epic Games launched a new direct payment system in Fortnite that allows players to directly purchase in-game purchases from Epic.
In the new payment system, the company offered up to a 20% discount to purchase Fortnite’s in-game V-Bucks currency compared to purchasing the same V-Bucks via Google Play Store or Apple App store.
It is worth knowing that If you have Fortnite installed from the Google Play Store previously, you will still be able to play the game (just like Apple iPhone smartphone), but it will be the same as the Apple devices issue that it won’t receive any updates including the new Season 4 expansion.
So the question raised in this situation is how you can play the new Fortnite Season 4? As Google won’t allow Epic games to push the latest update it is clear that you need to download Fortnite outside of Google Play Store.
To download the latest version of Fortnite on your Android phone or tablet you need to download the Epic Games app from your favorite browser. By downloading the Epic Games app you do not need to worry about the game not being updated as it will keep the game updated without the need for the Play Store.Download EPIC Games App
After downloading the APK file from above install and click on Open. On the Epic Games app, you will notice Fortnite which you can download and install the latest Season 4 update. This how you can play Fortnite Season 4 on Android smartphones. If you have a Samsung smartphone then you can download it directly from Samsung store.
