Epic Games is suing both Google and Apple

Share

Epic announced the 20% discount on V-Bucks but hasn't announced that it's a part of the war against Apple and Google.

This is the case on consoles and PC, but the situation is a little bit different when it comes to the mobile platforms. If you're on mobile, you'll need to use Epic's new direct payment system to avail yourself of these discounts. You can still use the platform-holder payment services, but there you'll be paying full price.

Apple does not impose its 30 percent fee on real-world goods, such as items shipped from Amazon or cars ordered by Apple. The discount is live today on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch versions of the game as well as the mobile versions (with some caveats).

But Epic Games couldn't resist the opportunity to take shots at both Apple and Google. On mobile, players can choose to pay with either the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store, or Epic direct payment, with direct payment purchases costing less in most countries.

Epic Direct Payment is now available because both Apple and Google charge a 30% fee for transactions.

Epic Games, the company behind "Fortnite", aired a video on Thursday roasting Apple and its iconic "1984" television ad after Apple yanked the game from the App Store. Epic Direct will provide players with a $2 saving on 1,000 V-Bucks.

" Notwithstanding its own assurances to create Android units available to competitors, Google has actually set up technical as well as legal barricades that confiscate contending techniques of dispersing applications to Android consumers, making certain that the Google Play Store accounts for virtually all the downloads of applications coming from application outlets on Android units". The possibilities of playing the game are endless, and it's totally worth it. When players buy from those stores, Epic collects $7 on a $10 purchase.

If you go this route, you will have the old pricing model, which isn't necessarily bad but it is unfortunate if you miss out on those savings. Players who made V-Bucks or real money purchases between July 14 and August 13 "will be granted a V-Bucks bonus by August 17".

To sweeten the pot a bit more, Epic is also giving every active Fortnite player the Shooting Starstaff Pickaxe for free.
