Fortnite Save The World leaves early access, will not be going free to play

Epic Games has announced that the PvE side of Fortnite, Save The World, is now out of early access. Unlike Fortnite Battle Royale, Save The World will not be a free to play experience with Epic Games deciding to keep that part of the game a premium product. With the release new content development will be slowed down for the game. All Founder’s Pack owners will have their packs upgraded to the next level, while Ultimate Edition owners will get 8,000 V-Bucks and the Metal Team Leader Pack. As things move forward not all future Battle Royale cosmetics will be compatible with Save The World, though existing cosmetics will be.

One of the new additions that will be coming Fortnite Save The World  will be the Ventures season long events. These Ventures will each have their own unique modifiers, and there will be levels to advance through to gain rewards. Each challenge that is met will lead to new weapons and seasonal rewards getting unlocked, with the peak being Supercharger materials. Supercharger materials can be used to level up items you own already passed their current level caps. At the moment these are the only details about Ventures with Epic Games saying it will be giving more details closer to the launch of the content.


In terms of seasons, Save The World’s content will be re-occurring over an annual schedule, with two of those events being  Frostnite and Dungeons. The seasonal rotation of Save The World will be separate to that of Fortnite Battle Royale. New quests and new Heroes will be added at a slower rate as well, while existing Heroes, Schematics, and Questlines will all rotate through according to annual seasonal schedule. The release from Early Access means they main story of Save The World has now been completed so Ventures will not have a massive impact on thats.
