Fortnite V-Bucks Now 20% Cheaper, Plus Free 'Shooting Star' Pickaxe

On PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mac, and PC, V-Bucks and real-money offers are automatically discounted by 20% - meaning 1,000 V-Bucks now cost $7.99, down from $9.99.

Epic Games has reduced prices on Fortnite V-Bucks - and has taken shots at both Apple and Google in the process. "Interestingly, while Epic Games" deal was blocked by Google, a similar app of Facebook is allowed in latest OnePlus phones.

If you want to unlock features or functionality within your app, (by way of example: subscriptions, in-game currencies, game levels, access to premium content, or unlocking a full version), you must use in-app purchase. Others have actually looked for to bypass the concern completely by not using in- app purchases, a la Netflix. The company plans to showcase the fees in the iOS app with a label that reads, "Apple takes 30% of this purchase".

The Fortnite Mega Drop is here! They then go on to mention various popular services, such as Amazon, Grubhub, Nike SNKRS, Best Buy, DoorDash, Fandango, McDonalds, Uber, Lyft, and StubHub.

Below you can find the official statement on the matter, posted on the official website of Fortnite and Epic Games.

Businesses will now be able to monetize online events on Facebook, thanks to a new feature that the social network is launching in the United States and 19 other countries today.

Simo sidestepped a question about Facebook supporting Epic and making an antitrust point about Apple, instead focusing on helping small businesses during the pandemic.

Currently, when using Apple and Google payment options, Apple and Google collect a 30% fee, and the up to 20% price drop does not apply.

Facebook's comments come a day after Epic Game announced it would be suing both Apple and Google for removing the "Fortnite" app from their stores after the gaming giant learned how to skirt their 30% commission fees.

With the latest Fortnite season coming to an and, Epic Games has made a decision to reward players with the "Shooting Star" pickaxe, which is available in-game for free.

If you purchased V-Bucks or a real-money offer within Fortnite between July 14th and August 13th, you can expect a V-Bucks bonus of 20% of your total purchase amount to be applied to your account by August 17th.
