Fortnite: Epic Games delays the free-to-play switch on the Save the World mode
Fortnite Save the World Mode Delayed
While it was supposed to be free-to-play since this summer, Fortnite’s Save the World mode will not be free this year.
In the Save the World campaign, Fortnite is presented as a cooperative survival game for up to 4 players, sandbox and exploration, weapon making, building fortified structures while beating waves of monsters. This is a far cry from the Battle Royale mode that inflates Epic Games’ recipes. If the American studio had considered offering the original Fortnite mode in free-to-play format within a few months, players will finally have to be a little more patient:
“We decided not to launch the free version of Save the World this year. We are working on a long series of functions, redesigning and adjusting the game’s architecture that we believe are necessary before we can take this step. Saving the World has evolved enormously since its launch in July 2017, and Fortnite itself has experienced unprecedented growth. In order to offer the most successful experience possible, we must be prepared to welcome the entire legions of new players. As this concerns both veterans and newcomers, we want to take our time to achieve this as best we can.”
