Fortnite mobile players spend a ton of cash in 72 hours

Fortnite Battle Royale Mobile Now Live For iOS, Here's How To Get An Invite

According to a Polygon interview with Ben Lewis-Evans, a user experience lead researcher at Epic Games, Fortnite launched with friendly fire enabled, a decision which was quickly walked back after players reported they were being killed by their own teammates for the items they carried. And while there are many reasons for its success, there's little debate that making the game free-to-play was a genius move on the part of Epic Games. We'll notify you when your Android device is supported'.

Sensor Tower, a data analytics firm specializing in the mobile app marketplace, revealed the Fortnite calculations in blog post on Monday.

The new limited time mode offers much faster matches compared to the typical Fortnite Battle Royale mode with a 15-minute time limit in place and increased resource gain, but Epic Games said that the initial increase in the resource gain rate was "a bit too abundant". Larger purchases net additional in-game currency, for example the $99.99 tier comes with an extra 3,500 V-Bucks on top of the standard 10,000 units.

This means just about third of the revenue that Pokemon Go has earned in its first four days, which equated to about $5 million - it's a lot of money from a lot of eager players who wanted to kit out their characters in one of the most popular battle royale games now out there. If you don't receive an invite right away, don't worry, Epic will get round to you eventually over the coming months. The mobile version of the game hasn't been available for long, and it's still on an invite-only status. It will be interesting to see the future of "Fortnite" Mobiles.
