In a somewhat bizarre series of events, Fortnite Developer Epic Games has made its decision to develop the pet cosmetics product & # 39; gunner & # 39; undone in the game, undone.
The item arrived yesterday in the shop of the game, but the fans quickly realized that it was very similar to an item previously released as part of the game's Season Six Battle Pass. Reddit user PhantomRacer32 has shared the following image online, with many speculating that the new article is just a quick overhaul and not a new product.
This is usually not a problem, except that Epic Games has always promised not to sell any Battle Pass-exclusive items in the game's store. Players release their virtual V-Bucks in the game for each Season Pass, with the expectation that the items they receive in return are tied exclusively to that deal. It's easy to understand why fans would be annoyed that one of their exclusive and paid products was being rebuilt and thrown into the store so everyone can buy it.
It was not long before Epic realized his mistake. The following statement was posted on social media just hours after the article was available:
"We should not have released Gunner Pet and apologized for it, but within the next few days, Gunner's purchases for the full amount of 1000 V-Bucks plus another 200 V-Bucks and the pet will be refunded will be removed from the locker.
Anyone who bought and refunded Gunner will instead receive $ 200 and a replacement refund token that can be used on all eligible items purchased within the last 30 days. "
It's good to see that Epic has listened to his fans and given them refunds and additional compensation, though it's hard to see that the players would not notice the revision. Either way, the problem has been resolved – now we can get back to the Victory Royales!
