Fortnite Save the World will not go free-to-play in 2018

Fortnite Gets Ready for Halloween With Event, Skins, Weapons

It did seem that Fortnite might vanish without a trace after its early access launch in July 2017, charging £35 to play the beta of a bland base-building zombie shooter, but then Fortnite Battle Royale hit and now everyone's heard of Fortnite.

Epic reported that August 2018 was its best month to date with more than 80 million Fortnite Battle Royale logging in to play.

Fortnite's PvE mode, Save the World, was set to go free-to-play this year, but the launch has been pushed back with Epic citing the need for "features, reworks, and backend system scaling", that are required before it can go f2p.

"We chose to move the free-to-play launch of Save the World out of this year", a post from the developer reads. "Scaling up for the legions of player heroes who will be joining the fight is key to providing an excellent experience". It's true: Save the World is often overshadowed by its BR counterpart-something which might subside somewhat when the former also goes free-to-play. We're reorganizing menu options to make them easier to find and converting some old UI tutorial quests to use a new callout system. Anyone who logs in during the Fortnitemares Event will be rewarded with the Brainiac Jersey and Skull Ranger Ramirez. You'll have a total of six Hero slots to manage up from the previous three. "Starting this week, we'll be hosting a 50% off sale for the Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe, and Limited Founder's packs", it announced. Players will have the main hero to command and the five additional chosen heroes will decide what "perks and traits" players will have access to.

"We're working on an investment refund feature that will activate whenever we make significant changes to schematics, heroes, survivors, defenders or any other items you've upgraded", the developer stated.

Epic Games started teasing the event on Saturday with the rhyme 'Costumes and dancing, Partner up, be wise.
