Fortnite developer Epic Games has announced a new monthly subscription to the popular Battle Royale shooter called Fortnite Crew. The subscription costs $ 12 USD per month and gives players access to a range of perks, including the game’s current Battle Pass, a monthly scholarship of 1,000 V bucks, exclusive skins and more.
Fortnite Crew launches alongside the start of Chapter 2, Season 5 on December 2, Epic announced on the PlayStation Blog. As the studio explains, the subscription gives players access to the game’s current Battle Pass, even if your subscription expires before the end of the season. Those who sign up for Fortnite Crew after already purchasing a Battle Pass will get 950 V-Bucks refunded to their account.
In addition to accessing the Battle Pass, Fortnite Crew provides subscribers with 1,000 V-bucks each month, on top of all the V-bucks you can earn while leveling that season’s Battle Pass. In addition, Epic will provide subscribers with an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack each month that will include a new skin and “at least one” matching glider, pickaxe or emote. You keep these exclusive cosmetics even if you do not resume your subscription.
The first Fortnite Crew Pack contains a skin for Galaxia, the “Empress of the Cosmos.” The outfit comes with an extra style, a Cosmic Llamacorn Pickaxe and Fractured World Back Bling. Epic says players will be able to subscribe to Fortnite Crew directly from Fortnite’s in-game store or the Battle Pass purchase screen after Chapter 2, Season 5 goes live.
Meanwhile, Fortnite players have been busy predicting how season 4 will end, and it looks like the season will end with an epic battle against Galactus. The Supervillain arrives at the game as part of a special season-ending event on December 1st. The event begins at 13 PT / 16 PM ET, but Epic recommends that players log in to the game about an hour before the scheduled start time; the playlist is displayed approx. 30 minutes before the event.
