Fortnite: the price of V-bucks definitely drops
Even though Epic Games calls it a “Mega Discounts” as if it were a temporary offer, the V-Bucks price drop is advertised as permanent regardless of the platform Fortnite is currently running on.
“This is not a limited time promotion but our new discounted prices available around the clock! We are delighted to pass these discounts on to you and we will continue to find new ways to engage all players of Fortnite “, can we read in the press release from Epic Games. While PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, PC, and Mac gamers can now enjoy up to 20% off V-bucks without doing anything special, Fortnite users on iOS and Android are urged to throw in a look at the new direct payment method introduced by Epic Games.
“When you choose to use Epic direct payment, you save up to 20% because Epic passes the savings on payment processing to you,” we are told. In effect, a 1000 V-Bucks bundle that normally costs $ 9.99 is now only $ 7.99 using Epic direct payment. The company of Tim Sweeney is positioned here against the 30% fees charged by Apple and Google on each transaction carried out on iOS and Android. Epic direct payment, which bypasses these fees, is currently supported in this list of territories.
As recently announced, Epic Games is now valued at 17.3 billion after a recent fundraising of 1.78 billion dollars, which includes the 250 million dollars invested by Sony Corporation last July. In 2019, Epic Games posted revenue of $ 4.2 billion in revenue and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization of $ 730 million.
