One of the most popular games right now is “Fortnite”. Chances are you’ve heard of it. Although it was already popular, it became more popular when Drake played “Fortnite” live on Twitch with the streamer Ninja. They played the free side of the game which is named Battle Royale.
Not only can you play this game against your PC friends, but it is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Mac, iPhone and iPad. Cross play is available with all platforms except for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so many people are currently a player. I just recently just played “Fortnite” with my friends on Xbox and it was a great experience to finally have the opportunity since I am also a PlayStation 4 user.
Since “Fortnite Battle Royale” is a free game, people have been wondering how they make so much money. The answer is quite simple. They offer in-game purchases.
Players have the opportunity to purchase “V-Bucks” which are used to then buy the different skins they can use for their character, purchase different dance moves for their characters to use during the game, and also purchase other in game items that make the experience more personalized.
Although “Battle Royale” is free to play, they also have a paid version of the game which is the “Save The World” side. While “Battle Royale” is a player-versus-player game, the “Save The World” side is a paid version.
There is also money to be made on the “Save The World” side since it is a paid version. Also, “V-Bucks” are used to buy “Loot Llamas” which are used to upgrade your weapons, traps, characters, and survivors. These are used to power up your character and help you get further in the game and to save the world!
By utilizing it’s in game currency, “Fortnite” is having no problem making as much money as they need, plus some.
