Epic adds a subscription service to Fortnite

Monthly "Fortnite Crew" service includes a Battle Pass and 1,000 V-Bucks to spend each month

Epic Games has added a subscription service to Fortnite,

Starting on December 2 with the launch of the fifth season in Fortnite's second chapter, players will be able to purchase a "Fortnite Crew" subscription for £9.99/$11.99 a month.

The subscription includes a Battle Pass for the full season ahead, and 1,000 V-Bucks to spend each month -- both of which can be purchased separately.

At the time of writing, 1,000 V-Bucks were selling in the Microsoft Store for £6.49, while a Battle Pass costs 9,500 V-Bucks on its own.

However, the Fortnite Crew package does include some exclusive content -- an "outfit bundle" each month that will only ever be available through the subscription.

Fortnite is currently at the centre of a struggle between Epic Games and the major mobile platforms -- particularly in a legal battle with Apple over revenue share.

A trial is scheduled to take place on May 21 next year.
