Has Fortnite eaten PUBG’s chicken dinner?

Fortnite is continuing to grow into one of the biggest games in the world and it is set to get even more users when it launches the mobile version of the game.

The mobile Fortnite is set to be the exact same as other platforms with the same graphics and gameplay, as well as the regular weekly updates.

Epic Games also revealed that it will soon support cross-platform play between all devices, making it easier for friends to play together.

With Battle Royale offered as a free to play game, and with no ads in sight, many players have been left wondering how Epic Games makes money from it.

How does Fortnite make money?

One of the main ways the Fortnite game makes money is from players buying V-Bucks, which is the in-game currency.

It enables players to buy cosmetic items for their Fortnite character and it is also how you can buy the Battle Pass, which is another way to unlock rewards.

The items you can buy and earn don’t affect the gameplay but they are a popular option for players looking to customise different aspects of their character.

Anybody who has played the game recently will notice that quite a large number of players have special outfits and emotes, meaning they’ve spent money on the game.

Epic Games also currently sells early access to the main version of the game – the Save the World mode.

It is set to become free to play like Battle Royale some time later this year, but for the moment players need to spend money if they want to play it.
