Fortnite event will give creators real money for V-Bucks spent by players

Epic Games will give Fortnite community Creators a cut for every 10,000 V-Bucks spent by players in-game.

For a limited time starting next week, for every 10,000 V-Bucks spent by Fortnite players, Epic Games will give $5 to selected community Creators.

How it works, is players will select a participating Creator through either the Battle Royale or the Save The World store. Players will do this by entering the Creator’s Epic tag via the “Support a Creator” button. This is found in the Item Shop in Battle Royale, or the Loot tab in Save the World.

The Creators will then receive funds for V-Bucks purchases. This applies to free V-Bucks players have earned as well.

The amount earned will scale with the number of players who choose to support a Creator. Support for the Creator will last 14 days, or players can choose to support a different one at any time.

Epic said this is its way of saying thank you to Creators, but it will only last for a limited time. The event runs from the Fortnite update coming the week of October 8 through December 31.

Creators such as video makers, streamers, storytellers, artists, cosplayers, musicians, and community builders can apply for the event. Those who wish to apply to the program will need to meet the criteria set by Epic.

More information on the Support-A-Creator event can be found through the Epic Games website.
