Epic will donate two weeks’ worth of Fortnite revenue to Ukraine rescue efforts
Fortnite’s new season begins today, and creator Epic will donate 100% of the game’s first two weeks’ revenue to Ukraine-related humanitarian initiatives. The event will run from March 20th through April 3rd and will cover all “real-money transactions” in the game, including purchased V-bucks, subscriptions, gifts battle passes, and select cosmetic packs. (Epic states that “using V-Bucks in Fortnite” will not be included because those are virtual currency purchases.) It will also apply to retail gift card transactions made during the two-week period.
