Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite V-Bucks cards will soon be available at retail stores in Europe. Find out where exactly you can buy the cards and how to redeem them.
As we know, Fortnite Battle Royale is still a free-to-play game. Epic Games generates revenue with Fortnite by offering cosmetics such as skins and emotes for sale.
These can be purchased with the in-game currency V-Bucks. While you've always been able to top up your V-Bucks online, Fortnite players in the US have had the option to buy V-Bucks cards in retail stores for a while now. And that will now soon be possible in Europe as well.
