Fortnite is ready to launch gift cards for V-bucks, the currency used by users to buy skins in the online store. How they work
Fortnite's foray into the real world. It has been rumored for some time that it would be possible to buy V-bucks, the currency used to buy skins and other premium content in the game's store, even in physical stores. And soon this will be made possible. According to what has been said by the men of Epic Games, you can buy special gift cards for Chapter 2 of Fortnite directly in the chains of appliances and stores agreed.
The news will be launched in November in the United States and then come slowly all over the world (even in Italy, although we do not know the exact timing). For the moment, V-bucks are available in different denominations from 1000-2800-5000-13500 with an expenditure in real money that starts from a minimum of 10 euros and goes up to 100 euros. In a nutshell, the more you spend the more in-game currency you receive proportionally. Until now you could only buy Fortnite currency via credit card within the game, now you can give V-Bucks to your friends via a gift-card.
Fortnite: the new gift cards
It seems that, starting next November in a few exclusive and selected physical stores in the United States, you can buy the first gift cards of V-bucks. Subsequently, with date still unconfirmed, it will be the turn of Europe, more precisely of England, and then land in France and Germany. For now we do not know when the gift cards will be available in our country, but it is only a matter of time and we must be patient a little bit. Not only that, Epic Games has thought of another surprise for its fans. By purchasing Fortnite action figures or, alternatively, one or more products from the NERF blaster line, you can receive a code that can be used to get a special collection tool online, namely a pickaxe.
