But this isn’t the biggest news as Fortnite V-Bucks is 20% cheaper now. Epic Games goes into further details about ‘The Fortnite Mega Drop’ in a recent blog post.

In this process, Epic has created a Direct Payment option on mobile. In that same blog post, Epic claims “when using Apple and Google payment options, Apple and Google collect a 30% fee, and the up to 20% price drop does not apply.” This means that for $7.99 you can get 1,000 V-Bucks, compared to $9.99 through Apple or Google.
- 1000 V-Bucks: $7.99
- 2800 V-Bucks: $19.99
- 5000 V-Bucks: $31.99
- 13,500 V-Bucks: $79.99
More Good News
Epic isn’t done yet, they also announced that if you’ve purchased V-Bucks in the past 30 days (July 14, 2020 – August 13, 2020), you will be rewarded 20% of those purchases back in V-Bucks., according to IGN.
It’s clear Epic can go toe-to-toe with Apple and Google, a luxury that not very many brands have. Will we see some form of agreement between Epic, Apple, and Google in the near future regarding mobile sales? I wouldn’t be surprised, but at this point, I’m are glad to see Epic take a strong stance against these corporate giants.
