Fortnite Crew Membership: What Do You Get For £9.99 A Month?

Well, that didn't take long. After teasing that Fortnite could soon be introducing a subscription service to make players part with their cash, Epic Games is rolling out the Fortnite Crew Membership alongside the upcoming Chapter 2 Season 5. For the princely sum of £9.99/$11.99, you're promised a whole Santa's sack of in-game goodies that will have you looking your best and making the most of your Fortnite experience.

The ongoing Chapter 2 Season 4 will round off with the gigantic Galactus event, while Epic Games Worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard had already said Season 5 will "change Fortnite forever". Even though we still think that means some sort of supersized change to the map, the introduction of a subscription service is also a pretty major revamp. With gamers rightly questioning what you do and don't get as part of the Fortnite Club Membership, we've got the full lowdown. 

 

Fortnite Crew Membership: what's included?

There had already been calls for Epic to introduced a monthly service where top-tier subscribers would be rewarded with exclusive items and possibly content. Those who sign up will be getting their Fortnite Crew Membership pack on December 2. On the way is the Galaxia Outfit and Style just for signing up. Elsewhere, there's the Cosmic Llamacorn Pickaxe and Fractured World Back Bling.

Your subscription cost also includes the seasonal Battle Pass and 1000 V-Bucks every month. If this wasn't enough, your Crew Pack contains one new outfit and at least one piece of gear every month. For those asking why they haven't heard about this already and have already parted with their cash for the Battle Pass, they can still buy the Fortnite Crew Membership and get a refund of 950 V-Bucks to their account.

 

Fortnite Crew Membership: is it worth it? 

The Club is effectively filling the space previously occupied by the Battle Pass - albeit in shorter bursts. While the Battle Pass lasts for several months, Fortnite Club Membership requires you to part with your real-life money on a monthly basis. So, what's it like in terms of value for money? Epic has promised you'll get an exclusive run of skins that “will never be sold or given away to non-Crew members". It's a tempting offer for those who like to flesh out their wardrobe and lord it over others. 

Added to this, you can cancel your membership at any time, meaning you could always give it a go, and if it's not for you, just cancel. On the whole, the idea of a monthly subscription has gone down well on social media, with many praising it as a revamped version of the Annual Pass. Last year, Epic mulled over an annual subscription, but ultimately, stuck with the Battle Pass model alongside in-game purchases.

That being said, £9.99 a month isn't exactly cheap when it comes to a subscription and puts it well ahead of the likes of Disney+. Also, let's remember that 1000 V-Bucks doesn't get you a lot these days in the world of Fortnite. Still, with surveys giving a wide variety of options and pricing plans, Epic's current model for the Fortnite Crew Membership seems to be the most popular. Let's wait and see how well it goes down after December 2.
