Report: 15,000 V-Bucks in Fortnite Mobile Await Those Who Pre-Order a Samsung Galaxy Note 9

The rumored timed exclusivity deal between Fortnite developer Epic Games and Samsung for the Android version may run deeper than initially expected.

If you love playing Epic Games’ Fortnite and want to go mobile on Android, there may be another reason to cave into pre-ordering a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 besides the rumored thirty days of exclusivity.

Apparently, those who grab Samsung’s upcoming device might get an extra perk in the form of 15,000 V-Bucks to spend in the game’s microtransactions, if a report by XDA Developers is to be believed.

The report is based on data mining of Epic Games’ own entitlement API, so it should be reasonably solid. Yet, of course, nothing has been announced or confirmed by either Epic Games or Samsung, so I wouldn’t go basing your purchasing intention on it just yet. In any case, is this is real, the cat will probably be thrown out of the bag soon enough.

Just recently, Epic Games confirmed that the game will completely bypass Google’s own storefront on Android, which is certainly a bold move. Yet, it’s certainly not unique. For instance, giant Japanese mobile publisher DMM has its own distribution platform that can be downloaded via its own website.
