Epic Games have released a blog post to announce Fortnite Item Shop Voting.
Epic are always looking for new ways to improve Fortnite and one way in which they do this is to add new features to the game. Data-miners had previously leaked that there would be a new system in place which would allow players to be able to vote for a cosmetic that would return to the shop, but nothing had been confirmed.
Epic have now released a blog post outlining the new Fortnite Item Shop voting feature and the first chance to vote will be on September 11th at 8 PM ET.
Here’s the full post:
We’re testing a new feature that gives you the power to vote for what comes back to a new Item Shop slot: Community Choice! When this feature is available, Item Shop content will battle against one another, and you can place your vote on what returns for an encore.
How Does It Work?
For each Community Choice event, you can vote once a day in support of the item you want to see return. While your daily vote is locked once you confirm a choice, you can vote for other items on any following days for the duration of the event. Be sure to log-in each day to get a new vote and show your support!
At the end of the Community Choice countdown, all player votes will be tallied up and the winner will be available in the Item Shop for a limited time. The first Community Choice begins when the shop rolls over in v10.30. Drop in on September 11 at 8 PM ET to cast your first vote!
