Fortnite Battle Royale Goes Free For Everyone On Sept. 26

By The Fortnite Team

Hey Fortnite community,

We have exciting news: on September 26, Fortnite Battle Royale will be free for everyone on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Mac.

What’s Fortnite Battle Royale?
It’s a 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite that will be free for everybody on Sept. 26. One giant map. A battle bus. Fortnite building skills and destructible environments combined with intense PvP combat. The last one standing wins.

So, what’s the catch?
No catch. Fortnite Battle Royale is free and we will not sell items that give a competitive advantage. At some point in the future we will sell other things including cosmetics or compendium-like content.

Squads are Coming!
On September 26, Fortnite Battle Royale will introduce squads. Also, we’re working to improve the feel of combat, controls, weapons, movement and inventory.

“Save the World” PvE Updates
Fortnite’s “Save the World” PvE campaign remains in paid Early Access and we have lots of great updates in the works including the previously announced “Block Party” mode and some spooky October content.

How Can I Play?
On September 26, Battle Royale will be available as a free download on the Epic Games PC launcher, PlayStation Store and Xbox Store.
