is finally shedding its early access status, and as a result, development of its original Save the World PvE mode will slow down. The news arrives after three years of development, during which the game has become quite the phenomenon after it pivoted from its initial horde mode to battle royale. Recent months have even seen it boasting virtual concerts and Star Wars collaborations, something only one of the world’s most popular video games could carry off.
In a post on the Epic Games blog, the development team revealed that Save the World’s main story “is complete,” but that it will endure as a “premium experience” instead of being free to play. Fortnite players considered to be “Founders” – those who purchased the game at full price – will have their Founder’s Packs upgraded as a result. Save the World mode won’t be able to support all upcoming Battle Royale cosmetics, but existing player libraries will remain in-tact.
