'Fortnite: Battle Royale' is a free game and probably always will be
Dec. 3, 2018

The most popular game of the year, "Fortnite: Battle Royale", is a free download, but that did not stop the retailers from rushing.

But make no mistake: "Fortnite" is a free download and probably always will be. When selling V-Bucks, a coin in play, "Fortnite" earns money and does not charge the game itself.

These packages must be clearly identified as such, even though at least one Reddit Australian found that his local store had stuck a label that could confuse things, thinking it was just a code for "Fortnite" "Extras, so be careful there.

This does not mean that "fortnite" packages have no value. The included V-Bucks can help unlock paid content in the game. However, buyers should know that the game is free without financial investment.

While this may take some time, players can earn V-Bucks by playing the game over time and unlocking the elements they want without paying anything.
