Galaxy Note 9 Fortnite promotion spotted on Epic’s website

Samsung offers many freebies with its flagship Galaxy smartphones to entice customers. The freebies range from smartphone accessories to in-app items and subscriptions in the Galaxy Apps store. Sadly, most of the previous digital freebies were lackluster, but that may not be the case with the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 promotion.

It appears Samsung and Epic Games (the studio behind Fortnite) have cooked up a promotion that offers free 15,000 V-Bucks (~$150 in value) in Fortnite for pre-ordering the Galaxy Note 9. This information comes from an XDA member who found references to this promotion in Epic Games’ own website by querying an API. The promotion also supports all the earlier reports that Fortnite will launch on Android as a Galaxy Note 9 timed exclusive.

A good deal for Fortnite fans

So far, there hasn’t been any official confirmation from either Samsung or Epic Games about the collaboration, but the CEO of Epic Games did confirm that the Fortnite for Android is coming soon and that it will be distributed via the Epic Games website to evade Google’s 30% cut on Play Store purchases. It is possible that Fortnite will come pre-installed on the Galaxy Note 9 to take advantage of the situation.

Though Fortnite is a free-to-play game, it has many in-app purchases like Battle Pass, costumes, dance moves, etc. that can be bought through V-Bucks. Considering how big a gaming sensation Fortnite is, for users who regularly play or want to play Fortnite Mobile, these 15,000 V-Bucks translate into a real discount on the Galaxy Note 9.
