Announced on Friday 30th November you can now claim 1000 Fortnite Vbucks when you buy 3 months of Xbox Live Gold. To buy 1000 Fortnite Vbucks with real money would cost you £7.99 from the Microsoft store so it’s not a bad little bonus.
As you can imagine this has been met with a mixed response. People who were planning on buying three months Xbox Live Gold are quids in if they already play Fortnite but there has been a lot of criticism from people who pay monthly or annually for their Xbox Live Gold subscription. The complaint from most people seems to be along the lines of what about me!? or can I have 1000 worth of credit for another game.
