Earlier this month, we covered a leak that seemed to suggest Epic Games was once again reviving its plan to implement a subscription service for Fortnite. While gamers in our neck of the woods seemed largely unimpressed with the idea, it seems as if Epic is plunging on anyway, as this morning the company has announced Fortnite Crew, its new $11.99 monthly sub.
The pass includes 1000 V-Bucks in stipend, an exclusive “always-new” outfit bundle, and access to the current season’s battle pass. And the first month includes a new Galaxia outfit along with a special llamacorn pickaxe and backpack (it’s the stuff in the pic above).
According to the FAQ, there are some platform restrictions here; you might not be able to access your V-Bucks on the platforms other than the one you sub on. Likewise, if you already own the current season’s battle pass, the company refunds you in V-Bucks, not cash – 950 of them.
Well, I suppose it can’t be much worse than Fallout First.
