Fortnite Founder's Packs Go On Sale And You Can Play On July 21
Epic's going to be showing the game off at E3, and has even produced a snazzy new trailer to introduce people to the game. In advance of that, Epic is offering the ability to purchase Founder's Packs ranging in price from $39.99 to $149.99 for the closed beta which will officially kick off on July 25.
We say "officially," because a Founder's Pack nets you a four-day head start, so you can get into the game on July 21. But you'll still need a Founder's Pack to play on the 25th, after that head start period ends; Epic says the game won't be fully free-to-play until sometime in 2018.
It seems that you can currently pre-order a Founder's Pack to get access on the 21st. If you buy one after the pre-order period has ended, you won't get in until the 25th. When does that pre-order period end? We don't know. And it's a little weird to, essentially, offer early access to early access. But after six years of development, Fortnite fans are probably happy for any chance to play the game.
