Lets talk anti cheat /u/arctyczyn, are you going to implement battleeye or any other solutions out there?

Other questions:

  • Squads are coming, but what about duo mm?
  • Ranked matchmaking, also if you add rank will you make MMR public? So it’s easy for you to see where you are. Leaderboards would go a long way as well.

Anti-cheat is always an arms race. We’ll definitely be on top of that concern.

  • Squads will include a range of party sizes.
  • Ranked is getting a little too far outside of our immediate plans. We’ll share more when we have more info about specific features.

In the interim, is there anything being done regarding aimbots and players teaming up?

We are taking action against players that are teaming! Make sure you are helping us out by reporting folks you see cheating.

Battle Royale @fortnitegame
Today we are releasing a Battle Royale update which includes various accuracy tweaks, weapon adjustments and more. https://t.co/JtkNM7FLBg

Thanks epic, for making Br free while continuing to suck the life out of your PvE players to make BR successful.

We still have a lot of features we want to add before the PvE campaign is complete. And will be launching the Save the World PvE campaign for free in 2018!

I got the email but when I start up the game it says “Your account can’t play on this system”. What’s that mean?

Which system are you trying to play FNBR on?

Originally posted by xternalfps

Yeah I purchased the game yesterday and sent an email over to you guys!

We’ll make sure to take care of you.

I wonder if they’ll do it for consoles as well. I got founders on ps4 but not pc.

If you were an alpha explorer, (pre-Early Access) then you will be granted to PC version of FN Battle Royale.

I see you specifically mentioned if you purchased it for BR on PC you can get a refund. What about ps4? I just purchased it on monday :(.

EDIT contacted psn support. Requested a refund and they gave it to me. Said it takes 3 to 5 business days to be filled.

https://support.us.playstation.com/articles/en_US/KC_Article/Support-tips/

Live chat them from there. Slight wait but it will be refunded.

Yeah we made sure to work with Sony. Any issue just reach back out to our Player Support team.

I got the email too and just downloaded it. It looks like we only have access to the battle royale mode and not pve?

Just Fortnite Battle Royale.

Problem is they didn’t specify either. I hope it’s forever! Been wanting to buy but can’t get myself to buy a game that’s going to be FTP.

FN Battle Royale is going free for everyone Sept. 26. If you are looking for more info, our official announce can be found here.

Got it too, wondering if we keep it forever or if it’s like a free weekend sort of thing

Forever :)

I am a Fortnite Alpha Explore and I did not get anything and epic launcher only shows buy. I even have the reduced price for being one. My account is jimmerzz. Can you look into it maybe there is a glitch?

The best way to resolve this is to reach out to player support and they can manually look into your account. Here is the link!

Just BR or the whole game?

Just BR. You only get access to the PC version.

Will this require a separate client redownload? Or will it still all take place within the same client but gate off those which haven't bought early access to the PVE?
It will not require a separate client download.

If the plan was to release it for free this soon, why even let people purchase it to begin with?

We launched public test and it worked better than we expected. Now, we want to reach as many people as possible with the game! To do that, we made the choice to release Battle Royale for free sooner than anticipated.

You'll see the "Free" download option in the PlayStation store.
