Epic Games has been surveying players about whether or not they would pay for a monthly subscription to the game that included various in-game benefits.
An image of the survey first appeared on the Fortnite subreddit. The subscription service in question would offer players access to the current Battle Pass, early access to an outfit pack that includes skin, an additional style, a back bling, and a pickaxe, and 1,000 V-Bucks per month. The outfit pack would later become available for purchase in the Fortnite shop.
The exact cost of the subscription service appears to be up in the air, as players received surveys with pricing that ranged from $14 per month up to $19 per month.
Epic Games has not committed to the idea of the subscription service. It would provide a new and presumably reliable revenue stream for Fortnite. As a free-to-play game, Fortnite’s revenue has come predominantly from in-game cosmetic sales to date.
