In August, Epic Games declared war on Apple (and Google) when the tech giants eliminated it Fortnite from their stores for violating the conditions of service provision. In case you forgot, Epic introduced a more directly way to pay in his game Battle Royale – essentially bypassing the payment system on these digital stores.
Epic followed this up by launching a One thousand nine hundred and eighty-four #FreeFortnite style campaign, to help spread the word about what happened (it was also a parody of an old Apple Mac ad). If this already seems a little over the top, the Epic Games team is now sending “free Fortnite” packages to people in the industry. Greg Miller of Kinda Funny shared some pictures:
The attached message explains what it’s like to celebrate Fortnite being awarded Samsung GOTY for 2020 and asks everyone to help “spread” the hashtag on social media, #FreeFortnite.
Hello, Fortnite has been named the Samsung Galaxy Store Game of the Year for 2020. As a holiday, we have teamed up with Samsung to send you a special box of #FreeFortnite equipment.
Although Fortnite may not be currently available in the App Store or Google Play, you can still get the latest Fortnite updates directly from the Epic Games app in the Galaxy Store. Spread the word, #FreeFortnite.
