Epic Games Announces Price Increase for Fortnite V-Bucks
Epic Games has announced plans to increase the price of Fortnite V-Bucks and some real money content packs. The company said updated pricing will be introduced on October 27 in the following countries:
- Czech Republic
- Eurozone countries
- United States (and countries that use the USD in their Fortnite storefronts)
These adjustments are based on economic factors such as inflation and currency fluctuations, and follow similar pricing alignments recently completed in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Mexico. Pricing changes in the US will include:
- 1,000 V-Bucks for $8.99 (currently $7.99)
- 2,800 V-Bucks for $22.99 (currently $19.99)
- 5,000 V-bucks for $36.99 (currently $31.99)
- 13,500 V-bucks for $89.99 (currently $79.99)
Epic Games reassures that Fortnite Crew subscription pricing won’t be impacted by these changes.

He will be taking over the role previously held by Donald Mustard, one of the driving forces behind the hugely successful Fortnite, who will be leaving Epic this month after almost 25 years with the company.
