Fortnite Save The World will no longer be free

Epic Games has announced that Fortnite, Save the World, PvE mode will no longer be available for free in the future.

In late 2018, Epic Games said that Save the World would finally be free to play and that players eagerly awaited the day they could try out PvE mode. Since the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale, Epic has focused on Battle Royale mode, leaving Save the World full of bugs and unhappy players.

Today, in a blog post, Epic Games announced that they are bringing Save the World out of early access. They also announced that they will no longer offer Save the World for free in the future as announced in 2018 and will instead remain a premium experience.

Players seem to be shocked by the change of direction with Save the World, mainly because they will no longer travel the free-to-play route promised by Epic. The free games have a much larger audience and, with the current Fortnite Battle Royale player base, there would have been an influx of players looking to try Save the World. With more players, Epic would likely have released bigger and more regular updates for Save the World.

Epic also clearly stated in their blog that content development for Save the World will slow down after the official release. Epic has however stated that all paid founders will have their package updated to the next level and unlock all the rewards that come with it. The owners of the Ultimate Edition will be assigned the new Metal Team Leader Pack together with 8,000 V-Bucks for free.

The blog post also states that Save the World will no longer support all new Fortnite Battle Royale cosmetics in the coming months, but your current cosmetics will still work as usual in Battle Royale and Save the World.

The blog post continues by introducing an important new feature, Ventures, together with outlining the changes to the seasonal structure for PvE mode and the release of new Save the World packages.

The save Save the World hashtag is currently trending on Twitter as players try to express their opinion after today’s blog post. Players are not happy with the fact that Epic has reversed the decision to save the world in the future, the amount of bugs in the mode and the fact that Epic claims that the main storyline is complete when it clearly isn’t. Here is a discussion on Twitter about why STW players are not happy:
