Whether it’s purchasing skins, emotes or the Battle Pass, the majority of people who play Fortnite spend money on the game, and with Epic Games earning a whopping $318 million across all platforms in May, it’s clear to see that the free to play game model is working wonders if supported by desirable in-game purchases.
In a survey of 1,000 players who play Fortnite frequently, conducted by Lendedu, 68.8% of people have spent money on in-game purchases, with the average spend coming to $84.67, with more than a third spending money on in-game items for the very first time. Of the 1,000 players participating in the survey, 25.3% of them also pay for subscriptions on Twitch.
The survey also broke down how much players are spending on different cosmetics, with 58.9% spent on outfits/characters, 9.52% spent on emotes, 13.52% on harvesting tools, and 18.06% spent on gliders.
