Fortnite increases the price of V-Bucks

Fortnite is increasing the price of its premium currency V-Bucks in several regions starting October 27th. The price increase will affect the USA, Japan and a number of European countries.

The price increase was reported by the Fortnite News account HYPEX on Twitter, where a table with the new prices for Fortnite’s various premium currency packs was published. The price of V-Bucks in US dollars will increase by around 12% to 15% depending on the package – 1000 V-Bucks, for example, will increase from $8 to $9.

Fortnite actually lowered the price of V-Bucks bundles a few years ago when it argued with Apple over platform fees. The new prices are still lower than what Epic was charging before this update, but not by much. It is likely that the upcoming price increase is related to inflation and follows a general trend of rising prices across many industries.

Epic recently reached a $520 million settlement with the Fair Trade Commission over “deceptive practices” in in-app purchases. Anyone who made a Fortnite purchase in error or whose children made purchases without their permission can request a portion of the settlement amount refund.
