Epic’s Fortnite has been very popular and beats out other battle royale titles over the past year, however, a new rival is gaining millions of players: Respawn’s Apex Legends. So in order to keep players loyal to Fortnite, Epic is giving away free stuff now.
Epic Games mentioned in the v7.40 patch notes that players who complete 13 “Overtime” challenges will be able to get the Season 8 Battle Pass for free. This normally costs 950 V-Bucks or around $10 in real money.
The battle pass gets you 100 in-game rewards like weapon customizations, skins, emotes, and more. Epic is giving players until February 27th to complete all of the challenges if they want to win the pass for free. Come on, you can do this. I believe in you. Get that free pass.
This will help reignite interest in the title since there are no new weekly challenges with the Season 7 Battle Pass though new season content is due in a few weeks. This will hopefully keep players hooked on the game rather than on this newcomer competitor Apex Legends.
On a side note, the game now has a new semi-automatic Infantry Rifle and both the Rocket Launcher and Hand Cannon have been nerfed.
