Fortnite Founder's Packs Go On Sale And You Can Play On July 21
We knew Fortnite was coming in 2017, and now we know the specific date when you'll be able to get access -- or, more specifically, dates.
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.
