In a recent announcement on their official blog, Epic Games have revealed that Save the World, which is the PvE mode of Fortnite, will not be going free in 2018 as announced earlier.
Announced on their official blog here, Epic Game’s statements comes after saying that they are still adding to the game mode and much changes are still required before the game mode is finally pulled out of beta and released free to play to all players.
Epic Games is planning to add tons of more content to the PvE experience of Fortnite which is not as famous as the Battle Royale mode of the game. Developers still need to rework a lot of things both at the front as well as back end of the game which is important to be completed before the final release.
However, this does not mean that the full free to play is never coming out. It is a slight delay and the developers are hopeful that will be able to release it soon. To facilitate early adopters of the Save the World mode, Epic Games is launching a grand sale on all founder packs.
All the founder packs which include Standard, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Limited Founder’s Packs will be 50% off during this sale. This will allow to get more players on board the Save the World which will be better for Epic Games to further optimize the game.
Current agendas on their task list include some Front End improvements and a new Hero System. They want to make the front end UI more integrated to the whole experience and make it as easy as possible for the players to understand all tasks in it. A possible update is probably already coming in a few days to this UI.
The new Hero System is designed to make it easier to manage all heroes and customize their load outs easily. Hero Slots will be increased to six from three and one of these heroes will be your main hero.
