“We are going to begin identifying players who have claimed the Eon Bundle and will be granting their accounts access to Save the World.”
To make things even better, Epic will be adding free Fortnite Save the World downloads to all future Xbox One S Eon bundles, too.
“We will also make sure that all future players who claim the Eon Bundle will be granted access to Save the World moving forward,” Epic continues.
“If you already had purchased Save the World and claimed the Eon Bundle, we will be granting you an additional 2,000 V-Bucks.”
But when will you be getting your hard-earned gains?
Epic says the codes will start being sent out over the next few weeks.
“We’ll begin the process of granting retroactive entitlements early next week when our offices reopen for the new year.
“We will provide an additional update on the progress of the grants around that time.”
When will Save the World be free?
Originally Epic Games planned to launch Save the World for free by the end of 2018. However, these plans shifted in October.
The company officially confirmed that they were pushing back the launch into 2019:
“We decided to move the free-to-play launch of Save the World out of this year. We’re working on a broad set of features, reworks, and backend system scaling we believe are needed to go free-to-play.
“Save the World has grown consistently since our launch in July 2017 and fortnite v bucks generator overall has experienced unprecedented growth.
“Scaling up for the legions of player heroes who will be joining the fight is key to providing an excellent experience. This applies to all of our players, old and new, so we’re taking the time to get this right.”
There’s still no word on when Epic Games will choose to make Save the World Free To Play, but we would suspect that such a big decision would happen at the start of the new season.
So right now, potentially look towards the launch of Fortnite Season 8 as a possible release date.
