In a move that was welcomed by the gaming community, Fortnites Free Edition will now be free for all.
In addition, FortNite Live will be free to play with its existing subscribers, but with no subscription.
That’s not all.
A full set of multiplayer maps and modes, along with new and exclusive content, will also be available for all to play.
“We’re committed to making the FortNets Free Edition a game that anyone can play and enjoy,” the game’s creators said.
“We are very proud of the game, and we want to be sure it remains a strong brand for the community and for all of us.”
The Free Edition is free to download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac.
“The Free edition is for Xbox One users, Xbox Live Gold members, and anyone who owns the Fort Nite title,” Microsoft added.
“All other players will receive a free FortNet Premium Edition.”
The game’s first-person shooter was originally released in 2014, but the title has now been updated three times over the years.
In 2016, the game was updated for the Xbox One X. In 2017, the PC version of the title was updated with a host of improvements, such as the addition of AI, which allowed for the FortNet’s new AI system to play a greater role in the Fort’s AI.
