The rumors and leaks are real. Fortnite: Battle Royale introduces a subscription service, dubbed Fortnite Crew, which will debut on December 2.
Earlier this month, several reputable Fortnite data miners unveiled what appeared to be a subscription-based service offered by the ultra-popular Battle Royale title. Fortnite’s official Twitter account confirmed the leaks earlier today with a trailer showcasing Fortnite Crew. Fortnite Crew is the newest addition to many of Fortnite’s incentivized offerings, like the Battle Pass, in which players pay real money to earn skins and other cosmetic items throughout each season. For just $12 USD per month, Fortnite players will unlock exclusive skins, 1,000 extra V-Bucks and seasonal Battle Passes for the life of their subscription. It’s a ground-breaking moment for Epic Games and Fortnite as they prepare for a new season.

The Fortnite Team released a blog post regarding the launch of Fortnite Crew, where they detailed what to expect.
“Beginning December 2 with the arrival of Chapter 2 - Season 5, we’re launching Fortnite Crew, the ultimate subscription offer for getting can’t-miss Fortnite content!”
The incentive involved in the subscription-based service seems worth the price for anyone who plays Fortnite regularly. For $12 USD per month, players will receive upwards of $30 USD worth of Fortnite items, the Battle Pass and extra V-Bucks. Here is the complete breakdown of what Fortnite Crew offers:
- Battle Pass Included for the full Season - As a member of the Fortnite Crew, you’ll always have access to the current season’s Battle Pass!

- Get A New Monthly Crew Pack! - Get an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, an always-new Outfit Bundle that only Fortnite Crew members get.
Players who subscribe to Fortnite Crew will earn Galaxia; the first-ever exclusive skin offered in this service. Epic Games also plans to release the next skin available to players before Season 5 starts on December 1. Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 is shaping up as one of the game’s best in a long time, considering the highly anticipated season-ending Galactus event and now a brand new subscription service for players.
