Fortnite, one of the biggest and most popular games right now, has delivered its second chapter, and after this big event, Epic games did a small change that got everyone confused. Now the Fortnite Installer app is called Epic Games, instead of just Fortnite, and you won’t find it in the Google Play Store. To download this apk you need to do it through their web page.
It is difficult to not imagine that the renaming of the Fortnite Installer app is to introduce other games that the company is launching soon and make it easier for everyone to download it through the same app. Just like a different app store in your smartphone, but just for the games of the company. However, this move was controversial because the Google Play Store gives certain safety, and their app at the beginning was vulnerable to hackers.
Also, the app looks basically the same that the old Fortnite Installer. It is an esthetic change where you will get the Epic Games logo at the beginning and then a banner about the game. Now you can get other games like Battler Breakers and more in the same app, so it will work like their online store but now on Android.
After some adjustments and providing the protection we all deserved, the installer was launched and you can get it on the Fortnite main page easily. So, if you want to download the app to get more updates and new games, follow the next steps to get it.
