The discount applies to all V-Bucks purchases directly from Epic across every platform Fortnite is available on, including the Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch. I had figured Epic and Tim had tucked tail after listing Fortnite on the Play Store back in April, but it would seem they still have a few moves up their sleeves in order to put pressure on both Google and Apple.
'Any attack on Turkish drill ship will cost dearly'
Tensions in the Mediterranean have escalated over recent weeks after Greece placed its military forces on high alert following Turkey's exploration.
On the Epic Games website, the developers introduced the Fortnite Mega Drop, which gives fans a 20% discount on V-Bucks if they choose to directly pay Epic, rather than paying extra money that goes to Apple and Google.
Epic Direct Payment is now available because both Apple and Google charge a 30% fee for transactions.
"In conjunction with this agreement, Epic designed a version of Fortnite for certain OnePlus devices that delivers a state-of-the-art framerate (the frequency at which consecutive images appear on the device's screen), providing an even better gameplay experience for Fortnite players", as per the lawsuit quoted in a reported by Android Police. Epic writes that "By offering an alternate payment system, we're not only offering players more choice, but we're able to pass along the savings to players". In the announcement, Epic also confirms that the discount won't affect the Support-A-Creator programme - every 2,000 V-Bucks spent will still reward creators with $1 United States dollars. Have you got your eye on any in-game Fortnite purchases? The list of supported countries is growing and, hopefully, more places will benefit from this soon.
As part of all this, everyone's also getting the Shooting Starstaff pickaxe for free. The bonus will be 20% of the total purchase amount that you spent during that time frame and you will receive it by August 17.
