Android Users Rejoice: Fortnite on Google PlayStore this Summer
This summer, it's all about Guns, Swords and Hammers.
The wildly popular sandbox, third-person shooting game Fortnite is expected to hit the Android Playstore this summer. And oh boy, thousands of fans can hardly wait.
Fortnite creator Epic Games announced in a blog post that the game will be available for Android users at some point this coming summer with a promise to update the fans of its development. This they revealed right after announcing a Battle Royale contest where players can win as much as 50,000 Virtual Bucks (or vBucks) for the champion. It’s the in-game currency used in Fortnite.
Last month, Epic Games hit a goldmine when it released Fortnite in iOS. Forbes reported that Epic Games nets an average of $1Million a day solely from player spending. And with an upcoming Android release on the horizon, sales are expected to hit as much as $500Million by the end of 2018.
In February, Fortnite raked in $126 million. This toppled PUBG (another popular online shooting game) total sales for that month even though it costs $30 to play PUBG while Fortnite uses a free-to-play format and earns exclusively through in-game pruchases.
Expect Fortnite to make one hell of an arrival on Android as millions of users will download and play the game on their mobile phones. Will the hype ever stop?
