Fortnite, a famous battle royale game, finally made its way onto to the Google Play Store for free.
Earlier, Android users had to struggle with downloading Fortnite from the Epic Games website via an APK file download, but not anymore as after 18 months, the game has been made available for download on the Google Play Store.
Like PUBG, Fortnite is also available for free but with their hefty file sizes, the game requires an additional download of 7.4GB. The game can be played in the 'Epic' quality setting with better graphics. Although, 'HD Graphics' should be downloaded to play the game with 'Epic' quality.

A PC game initially, which later made its way to consoles and now mobile, Fortnite is another Battle Royale game with additional features where players are allowed to build structures in a gunfight to gain some edge over their opponents.
The standalone feature of 'building structures' in Fortnite makes the game different from all the other Battle Royale games.
Unlike Call of Duty: Warzone and PUBG, Fortnite is more than just 'run and gun' feature where players can gain tactical edge over their opponents by building structures.
