Fortnite: Save the World isn’t free for now

Fortnite: Save the World isn’t going to be free-to-play just yet. Epic Games wanted to make the Save The World mode for Fortnite free this year, but has decided to wait until at least next year. The developer announced this in a blog post.

Epic Games has decided not to make the Save the World mode in Fortnite free for now. The developer announced the news via a blog post and gives the reason that Save the World must be further prepared for a step towards free-to-play. The plan was to make Save the World free this year, just like Fortnite: Battle Royale. Below is a quote from Epic’s statement:

We decided to move the free-to-play launch of Save the World out of this year. We’re working on a broad set of features, reworks, and backend system scaling we believe are needed to go free-to-play. Save the World has grown consistently since our launch in July 2017 and Fortnite overall has experienced unprecedented growth. Scaling up for the legions of player heroes who will be joining the fight is key to providing an excellent experience. This applies to all of our players, old and new, so we’re taking the time to get this right.

As a kind of consideration, Save the World is now available with a 50% discount. The mode revolves around building fortresses to ward off hordes of zombies.

Earlier this year, Epic came up with a statement in which they told want to make the controls of Save the World and Battle Royale the same. Creative Director Darren Sugg said at the time that it is “more complicated than simply introducing Combat Pro to Save the World.”
