With all that else going on, you may have momentarily forgotten Epic Games and Apple’s ongoing legal fight over the Fortnite maker’s elective payment system that got it booted off the App Store. The lawsuits are as yet playing out, however here’s a small positive: Epic declared last Friday that your V-Bucks abandoned on the macOS and iOS adaptations of Fortnite will be honored and credited to your account so you can spend them on different platforms.
Epic says that players who bought V-Bucks on iOS and macOS ought to get their credit by today, November ninth. Those V-Bucks can be spent on any platform that can play Fortnite other than iOS or macOS.
On the off chance that you’re thinking about how far the legal fight has come, we have an entire StoryStream and a brief timeline of events that can get you up, however, a significantly more limited version is this: Apple was at last compelled to permit Epic to keep on update the Unreal Engine for developer use, yet Fortnite stays off the App Store.
From a gaming perspective, Epic’s fight with Apple has left the iOS and macOS versions of Fortnite a shadow of their previous selves. Play outside of Apple’s ecosystem is disabled and the core progression loop that keeps players returning to the game — the seasonal updates and fight pass system — is inaccessible.
Fortnite on Apple platforms never observed this current summer’s “Nexus War” Marvel update, nor the series of in-game concerts that followed, and who knows when any of that substance may return. On the off chance that players want to spend their V-Bucks and stay up-to-date with the game, they’ll need to do so elsewhere.
