Fortnite Could Add Monthly Subscription Plan in The Future

The service would likely offer players access to the Battle Pass, special cosmetics and V-Bucks.

November 11, 2020

Fortnite developer Epic Games is considering adding a monthly subscription package into their massively popular battle royale and is currently surveying players to see how they would feel about the addition.

Information on the potential subscription and survey was shared on Twitter by user FireMonkey, who specialises in Fortnite news and leaks. The survey asks players a range of questions, including if they would be happy to pay a monthly subscription within Fortnite, how much they would be willing to pay and what items they would expect should they subscribe.

Images from the survey indicate two potential price points, $15.99 and $18.99 per month, however, Eurogamer has suggested that there may in fact be a much more palatable $5 entry point. It is likely that within the monthly fee, players would gain access to the Battle Pass, special outfits, Back Blings and Pickaxes and 1000 V-Bucks (equivalent to $8/£6.50).

While the idea seems to be in the early stages, it seems like a natural progression for Fortnite to make considering just how popular the battle royale remains to this date.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

With the Xbox Series X and Series S now in players hands and the PS5 out for the majority of the world tomorrow, players can start to experience the next generation of Fortnite. The game will run in 4K at 60 FPS on both the Series X and PS5, while the Series S will be able to run the game in 1080p at 60FPS. The PS5 version of the game will also have some extra DualSense functionality offering “integrated trigger feedback for ranged weapons,” meaning each gun should feel different to players.

Fortnite is out now on Mobile devices, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series S and Series X and will be available on the PS5 the day it launches worldwide.
