Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

Fortnite Battle Royale by Epic Games that brought you Gears of War Series is the completely free 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.

Original Post

Written by
The team at Epic is excited to announce that Fortnite Battle Royale will be available for FREE beginning September 26!

The Fortnite Battle Royale mode takes the gameplay of battle royale games and adds all of the action-building pieces unique to Fortnite. This 100-player PvP world will allow you to locate weapons and supplies, destroy enemy cover, drop traps, and build your way to victory.

Here's some general information for questions you may have:

Is Battle Royale really free?
Yes, starting on September 26. We launched a public test and it worked better than we expected. We want the game to reach as many players as possible, so we decided to release Battle Royale for free sooner than we anticipated.

I bought the game for the PvP Battle Royale mode on PC last week. Since it's free now, can I have a refund?
Yes. If you purchased Fortnite between Sept. 12 and Sept. 19 to get access to Battle Royale, and you would like a refund, contact us and we'll give you one. Fortnite Battle Royale will still be available to you for free.

Squads. Where are the squads?
Squads are coming 9/26. We'll share more details in the Fortnite Release Notes.

Where are the vehicles?
We are prototyping some ideas but don't know how they will fit into the game. We'll let you know more soon.

Will you add more maps?
Yes, but not right away.

What else are you working to immediately improve or add?
We're working to improve the feel of combat, controls, weapons and movement. We're also working to streamline inventory management.

It's two different games. One is Fornite and one is Fortnite Battle Royal

No you don't. It's two separate games and Fortnite is not required.

"Players won't be required to own the original Fortnite to play Fortnite: Battle Royale. H1Z1 made a similar move when it split into two different games, carving off its battle royale mode in 2016 to become H1Z1: King of the Kill."

The whole game is suppose to become free in 2018, which is why I decided to just wait. Cool that I can try that mode for free now though.

I don't get it. When the stores have a hard copy for $60 and this saying is free. I'm puzzled.

I see. Now that makes sense. Damn the name is so similar and release about the same time.

So you need to buy Fortnite to play this right?
No you don't. It's two separate games and Fortnite is not required.
