Fortnite finally loses
After three years and 13 seasons of Battle Royale, Fortnite finally loses its early access tag in all modes. It happens when Epic Games signals a decline from the original part of the Save the World game, which will soon switch to a recurring annual calendar that offers “long-term replayability.”
“The development of new content will slow down after this official launch,” Epic said, while Save the World’s main story is now “complete,” dulling hopes for any major expansion.
The mode, released in paid early access, will now not be free as Epic’s plan had been. It will also begin to lose compatibility with some Battle Royale cosmetics in the future, though when it will occur has yet to be announced.
But it is not all bad news. A new seasonal activity called Ventures is coming soon to add a new way to level up and unlock Supercharger materials to update existing items. This will be included in the regular calendar of events like Fortnite finally loses and Dungeons, which will rotate annually thereafter, separate from the battle royale portion of the game.
The Save the World price drops to $ 20 and is offered through a new pack with a skin and 1000 Bucks of premium currency, plus many in-game item tickets. At the same time, the VBucks daily login bonus will be exclusive to owners of “Founders” of older games, who will get an upgrade of their version of the game to the next equivalent level.
In truth, it’s been a long time since Save the World fans felt that the game’s PVE mode was being prioritized over its mega-hit portion of Battle Royale. Today’s news has been slow to come, after repeated delays in the full launch of the free mode. At least, it confirms that Save the World will stay for a while yet, for those who enjoy it.
Meanwhile, in the Battle Royale part of Fortnite today: firearms! Mobile update stations! And leaked cosmetics that indicate Captain America will launch as a skin on July 4.
