The length of time of early access is undecided, though the game’s FAQ still states that Fortnite will launch free to play sometime in 2018. Otherwise, the game is now open to all who have bought in regardless of Founder’s Pack tier.

The game’s purchase page offers bundles similar to those that were first on sale, with in-game goodies and prices holding steady since the game’s reveal in June.

Our Thoughts
