Epic Games Announces Price Increase for Fortnite V-Bucks

Epic Games has announced that the price of V-Bucks in Fortnite will increase starting from October 27th. Several countries will be affected by this change, including stores that use the US dollar as a transaction currency. Although Brazil was not mentioned in the announcement, the update was shared on the Brazilian portal of the battle royale game, so it's worth keeping an eye on the price.

The pricing adjustment for V-Bucks and real-money Content Packs will take place in the Czech Republic, Denmark, countries in the eurozone, Hungary, Japan, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Turkey, and the United States (including stores that use the US dollar) on October 27th, 2023. These adjustments are based on economic factors such as inflation and exchange rate fluctuations and follow similar price changes that were recently implemented in the UK, Canada, and Mexico.

In the United States, the pricing will change as follows:

  • 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)

It's important to note that the price of the Fortnite Club subscription will not be impacted by these changes. However, the prices of certain Content Packs will be adjusted when they become available again in the future, including The Final Judgment Pack, Skull Squadron Pack, Rift Tour Task Pack, Saints Academy Task Pack, and Transformers Pack.
