Brilliant news for Fortnite fans as Epic slash prices for in-game purchases as part of the Fortnite Mega Drop.
Epic Games have announced some changes to the prices of V-Bucks and real-money offers in Fortnite. Starting from now, players will be able save up to 20% on all purchases made on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac.
Don’t worry if you’re short on pennies at the moment either, the Fortnite Mega Drop discounts are permanent! So, next time there’s a skin in the Item Shop that you just can’t resist, you won’t have to make such a big dent in your wallet.
What do I need to do?
If you play on console or PC, then nothing. Just buy V-Bucks in the usual way and you will benefit from the reductions.
For mobile gamers, it’s still pretty simple: Once you’ve downloaded the latest Fortnite update, you will notice that there is a new payment method available. When making a purchase, you will now have the choice to use “Epic Direct Payment”.
Using Epic Direct Payment allows Epic to avoid paying fees to Apple or Google and they will pass the savings along to you.
