    Fortnite - free game 24th Apr 18 at 12:02 PM
    Is anyone else playing Fortnite? It's free to play (if you only play the multiplayer) but there are in game purchases. I tried it yesterday and had an absolute blast! It's on PC, Xbox, Playstation and Mobile.

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    There are two Fortnite games.
    "Save the World" is the one that costs money
    "Battle Royale" is free to play

    I'd play BR if I had more friends who were willing to, so just purchased the PvE Save the World so I can play at my own pace

    Playing it currently on PS4 and it's amazing. Won my first game a couple of weeks ago and I'm in love. I want to play Fortnite on my laptop but it seems to run like crap on that.

    guys please help
    I have 2 sub accounts for my sons who are both 10 and 8 and when they try to play it says summat about the age limit is there anyway around this because so far I have been letting them play just on my account and I don't really feel comfortable doing this.

    Hi, what do you mean you have sub accounts? Accounts for what?

    atlantis - the idea of having sub accounts, particularly for kids, is so that they can't access age restricted content based on their age. Far as I know Fortnite has a pegi rating of 12+, so unless your kids are 12 years old or more, then it won't let them play it. Their account will have their date of birth in it - they either need to get a bit older, or use your account, or maybe create another sub account for kids fortnite playing. Bear in mind that it has in game purchases - they aren't needed to play the BR game, but you can buy appearances/outfit type stuff i.e. make sure you have some control over your payment method so they can't spend accidentally.
