"I bought the game for the PvP Battle Royale mode on PC last week. Since it’s free now, can I have a refund?
Yes. If you purchased Fortnite between Sept. 12 and Sept. 19 to get access to Battle Royale, and you would like a refund, contact us and we’ll give you one. Fortnite Battle Royale will still be available to you for free."

This game looks like team Fotress meets PUBG. Looks OK and fun but PUBG...Thats another level!

Worth a crack for free, cheers OP

That's good to hear, shame the base game is still not ftp. By the time it does become a freebie console owners will be playing PUBG.

This is only if you wanna play Battle Royale, the Save The World campaign won't be available to play if you get a refund, just an FYI

So is this a poor man's PUBG?

I was referring to the base game. I have updated my comment as I didn't make myself clear.
Edited by: "ThugBasher" 20th Sep

Excellent find

Not really relevant though, since the base game isn't anything like PUBG, but oooh kay.

Well that's good. I was going to buy it this week (just for Battle Royal). Ill give BR ago if I like the gameplay ill buy the survival game.

I suppose you can put it that way. The same way PUBG is a poor man's Arma 2 Battle Royal.

if you had beta access or a founder of Paragon
check your Email

I had beta access to Paragon before
and just got email for BR access of Fortnite yesterday

This game is really fun. In fact imo significantly more fun than the normal PvE side of Fortnite. It's early days and certainly needs work in multiple areas but they've already built something very fun with a unique twist on the genre with the building / destruction. For free along with being before pubg on console I suspect it to do very well. Smart move by Epic and I hope they continue to double down on it.

Got a lot of friends that play this, think I will wait till it's FTP and join in on what seems like a good game.

Heard the news else where. Big H1Z1 (Z1 map) and PUBG fan, so I am happy that this is being released F2P and so soon. I cannot wait to give it a go!

Good post by OP for those who can claim a refund and general awareness. Brendon better step his game up and get his version released on to consoles.

If you click on the 'contact us' link found in the description, then they will get it sorted for you. Seen some comments from the developers themselves talking about PSN and they confirmed they have worked with Sony (so no doubt Microsoft too) to get it done.

i don't get it, is it on steam for PC? It sounds like the game has been around a while and the new battle royale part is new. but can't for the life of me find any kind of download link or whatnot

I don't think it's available on Steam. It uses it's own launcher I believe.

Yeah. The offspring will be pleased. Much prefer this to other profanity laden offerings.

liked the look of this since i first heard about it, but it seems it doesn't know what it is yet - a f2p multiplayer, a singleplayer hordemode, a l4d offshoot or whatever.

this looks pretty awesome!!!!!
i wanted to play PUBG for ages but as my PC is terrible and i use my PS4 for all my gaming needs, this would be as close as i can get :-) thanks for the heads up op

a singleplayer hordemode, a l4d offshoot or whatever ....more information

Ok ill see if I can make sense of my comment. I think what ollie was saying is. This is like PUBG but not as good. What I meant is PUBG is like Arma 2 Battle Royal but not as good (but still good just not as good as Arma but still good just not as good ect)

PUBG will come to PS4 too but around next year after Xbox One console release beta testing

I downloaded the "free" version when it first came out, booted it up and when it got to the main screen it said I had to buy it to play? Pointless!! So will I be able to play it now? Confused.com

Yeah it wasn't actually free. Still needed to pay to play it unless you wait until launch in 2018 when it becomes free so you won't get playing that. At the moment it is still in early access which is why we pay. This is the Battle Royale which is separate to it and will be free to everyone (previously had to be paid but now it's been changed to free and people can request a refund if they bought that game for this mode) so it should have it's own download on the 26th.

How long has this battle royale mode been available to owners of the full Fortnite game?

PUBG developers are giving this a lot of free publicity and it'll probably be the only Battle Royale game on ps4 for a while. This may actually take off!


Edit: I'm not sure if it's because of Paragon but I was able to install and play Fortnite Battle Royale already. Seems quite a few people have as match making is takes just a few seconds. Might be worth a try if you have the epic launcher already.

Hey man, go on google, type Epic Games, on their website you can find icon GET EPIC GAMES in upper right corner, it will download luncher and inside luncher you will find it as second button with it's name, I played 30-40 games and i won 3 times, i played 30-40 PUBG games and won once by luck in FBR(fortnite battle royale) i dominate on map and every game i have 5+ kills, in pubg 2-3 and i am scared to go outside

Looks good, I will download it tonight, what's the size of the game?

Just had the update file on my PS4 for the game but I think demand is crashing it. Will try later. Game was about 9 gigs I think, update nearly 2 gigs.
