Epic Games' Fortnite will definitely not go through the usual distribution channels, as the developer announced that downloading the game via Google Play Store will not be possible.

However, to get the game you will have to install it from a third-party source, which is a bit more complicated than just visiting the Google Play Store.

When Epic Games launched Fortnite on Android earlier this week, it did so in an unprecedented manner.

The warning does not appear if you search for Fortnite on the desktop version of the Play Store.

This long waiting time has perhaps lead to some impatience, and thus users are using an APK to download Android Fortnite before it's release. While a version for Android was in the works, malware creators preyed on those Android users looking for a game that, unbeknownst to them, had yet to be released for their device. Apple doesn't allow app downloads from anywhere but the official App Store on its mobile devices. Following Fortnite's success on Android other game developers will also follow suit. In just one year, it's amassed 125 million players including celebrities like Drake, Joe Jonas, Finn Wolfhard, and even Roseanne Barr. Epic has to share 30 percent of those purchases made on iOS devices with Apple due to the terms of the App Store.

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.

Epic has shared a few more details about the upcoming Android release of Fortnite.
