Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world but most of you already know that you cannot just simply download it on your Android device from Playstore. If you want to get Fortnite on your smartphone then you need to first download the Fortnite Installer from the Epic Games website. When you launch the app then you can find the download files for the game. As of right now, the Fortnite installer’s name has been changed to Epic Game and it will be seen as Epic Games app on your Android device. You might not see any major changes in the app other than its name but the reason behind this change will have a bigger effect.
The icon of the Fortnite game is also changed from the Smiling Blonde to the Epic Games logo. This change was notified to the user from the official Twitter account of Fortnite and they said that it’s the only thing that’s changing. There is no significant change in the Epic Games app as you download and launch it in your device then it will simply start downloading the files for the Fortnite Game.
If you are wondering whether you can download Epic Games from Play Store or not then the answer is no. Also, you need to enable permission for your device to install third-party apps from unknown sources. The changing of the name of the game might sign from the company about changing the gaming ecosystem on a smartphone just like it was changed for PC gaming.
The founder of Epic Games and creator of Unreal Engine, Tim Sweeney wrote in a blog post last year where he said about the company plan to bring Epic Games to Android and several other platforms.
