The Daily Moot: Fortnite Removed From App Store

News Picks

1. Fortnite Mega Drop

Moot: News Picks - The Daily Moot: Fortnite Removed From App Store image 2

The Fortnite Mega Drop is here, permanently making V-Bucks cheaper. Along with the rollout of their new Epic direct payment system, Epic has decided to permanently reduce the cost of V-Bucks by up to 20 percent in an event they are calling the “Fortnite Mega Drop.” Epic’s new direct payment system is designed to circumvent the 30 percent fees that Google and Apple charge for Google Play and App Store transactions, and Epic Games is giving back to their fans by passing on the savings to the players. Apple clearly isn't happy with Epic’s attempt to avoid fees, as they have now retaliated by completely removing Fortnite from the App Store. It doesn’t seem like either side is planning on backing down any time soon, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens next.

  2. Epic Freebies   Another week of freebies from Epic Games is here. This week’s free games are Remnant: From the Ashes and The Alto Collections. You can grab your free copies of these games directly from the Epic Games Store from now until August 20. As long as you claim the games by August 20, they will stay in your library forever. Epic is also giving away the latest Total War game, A Total War Saga: Troy, which just launched today. The free copy of A Total War Saga: Troy is only available today so be sure to hurry if you want the game; after today the price will go up to $50.

  3. Dead by Daylight Crossplay   Dead by Daylight now has crossplay. Starting today, you can play with and against players on PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The developers are also planning to add crossplay to the Google Stadia in the future, but will not be implementing crossplay for mobile platforms.

  4. THPS Renames Trick   Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Remastered is renaming a skateboard trick in order to pay homage to the trick’s creator. The trick, previously known as the “Mute Grab,” will now be called the “Weddle Grab” to honor its creator Chris Weddle. The trick was originally misnamed; Chris Weddle is deaf but not mute, and although he had no ill feelings towards the original name, Weddle expressed that he would have preferred “Deaf Grab” or “Weddle Grab.” Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 Remastered is set to launch on September 4.

  5. Metamorphosis   Metamorphosis, a game about being a bug, has now launched. Metamorphosis is based on the Franz Kafka short story of the same name and features a combination of first-person puzzling and platforming elements. To celebrate its launch, the game will be available at a 10 percent discount from now until August 19. You can check out the launch trailer for Metamorphosis below.

    Apple, a company who's app store is worth $50,000,000,000 in 2019, is not going to be missing out on much, because fortnite only gives them about 30% of $1.5M estimated on a peak day. People are angry, but no one is angry enough to stop buying iPhones over an app based on teens.

    Some people buy apple products just for the game. I did, and there's a billion other apple consumers which some possibly done the same.Theres many mobile players on the Apple side that make money off of Fortnite, content creators. Still you make a really understandable argument, i didn't necessarily mean apple will be missing out on making money off of Fortnite, but users and possibly potential. Apple makes about 108M a year with Fortnite which still is merely about .264 percent of Apple's earnings in that year. But it's not about the money, Epic Games doesn't care about that. Epic games was trying to prove a point since before they decided to add a direct purchase option. They want to simply change Apple's monopoly policy. Too lazy for links. I forgot what i was arguing about?
