Fortnite Save the World free to play launch delayed to 2019, all Save the World packs will be 50% off this week

by on October 22, 2018

Epic Games wanted to make Fortnite Save the World go free to play this year but that has been pushed.

In a state of development post for Ocotber 2018, Epic Games announced the move of the free to play launch for Save the World to 2019. Fortnite Save the World is the PVE section of Fortnite that was the original game before Battle Royale exploded and took the world by storm. Read the announcement below:

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.

To thank our founders, both new and old, if you log in and play during the Fortnitemares Event, you’ll receive both Brainiac Jonesy and Skull Ranger Ramirez for free!

For those of you who want to start playing right now, we’ve got you. Starting this week, we’ll be hosting a 50% off sale for the Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Limited Founder’s packs.

Fortnite Save the World is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. Switch and mobile just have Battle Royale.
