According to a recent announcement from Epic Games, the price of V-Bucks and other in-game purchases in Fortnite will rise in several nations. Here are the updated costs and the countries that will be affected, although this adjustment caught gamers off guard. Fortnite is one of the top games in terms of the volume of in-game purchases its user base makes. Players prize the virtual currency utilized in the game, V-Bucks because it can be used to purchase in-game cosmetics, which are also highly prized digital goods.
The quantity or price of V-Bucks that Fortnite players can buy from the Epic Games or platform shop has undergone numerous changes. They are valuable because there are many online competitions and giveaways where gamers can earn many free V-Bucks. V-Bucks have recently seen a significant price increase, even though purchasing them is more straightforward and less expensive than in games like Call of Duty and Apex Legends. Here are the updated Fortnite V-Bucks prices and the nations that will be impacted.
Canada, the UK, and Mexico’s V-Bucks prices have changed due to Fortnite
The price of V-Bucks and other in-game bundles will change in the UK, Canada, and Mexico, according to a new blog post by Fortnite. According to a statement from Epic, v-Bucks, and different in-game bundle prices will increase in the UK and Canada on July 17, 2023, to reflect inflation. However, due to currency fluctuations related to the US Dollar (USD), V-Bucks and bundle pricing will decrease in Mexico at about the same time. The significance of the price adjustments was highlighted in a recent tweet by dataminer iFireMonkey, who contrasted the new costs with those for V-Bucks and other in-game bundles. Prices will increase by almost 9% in the UK, with the new scale from £3.49 to £69.99.
Prices in Canada will range from $5.99 to $119.99 after a 12% price increase. V-Bucks and in-game bundles, on the other hand, are discounted in Mexico by a range of 3%, from $79 to $1629. Despite the revised fees, the Fortnite Crew Subscription remains at $249 in Mexican Pesos, $15.99 in Canadian Dollars, and £9.99 in British Pounds. In addition, when specific bundles (such as Dark Reflections, Magma Masters, Lava Legends, Summer Legends, and the Wish, Set, Match Quest Pack) reappear in the future, their pricing will be changed.
