    Not much different than getting a PC game. I never realized that Goggle takes that much of a cut, seem a bit steep.

    I've seen Fortnite offered using Samsung's Game Launcher. It's featured at the top in Galaxy Apps along with PUBG. It's actually a Fortnite Installer which in turn installs the Fortnite App. Searching for 'fortnite' in Play Store results in "Fortnite Battle Royale by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play."
