Fortnite Save the World Could Become Free-to-Play Very Soon

Fortnite’s “Save the World” mode could become free-to-play before the end of Season 5, according to a new leak.

The popular, and usually accurate, Fortnite data mining and leaking account @FNBRLeaks on Twitter broke the news, saying “Save the World MAY become free this season”.


No more information was shared and a follow-up Tweet from the same account simply told followers to “come back to this in a week or two”.

Season 5 in Fortnite is expected to end some time between mid and late September, which means that players could be getting their hands on a free version of Save the World within a month.



Save the World was the original Fortnite mode when the game was released in July of 2017. The incredibly popular Fortnite: Battle Royale didn’t arrive until September of the same year.

While the battle royale mode is completely free to play, Save the World has always required an investment of around 30 to 40 dollars.


Save the World is a co-op survival game. 98% of the world’s population has been wiped out by the arrival of “The Storm” and players must fight against AI-controlled zombie-like creatures called husks in order to survive.

Described by Epic’s Tim Sweeney as “Minecraft meets Left 4 Dead”, the game makes players responsible for commanding a base, constructing and maintaining “storm shields”, finding and protecting survivors and attempting to save the world from total destruction.

Save the World going free-to-play would come as a surprise to many as Epic Games has never shown any signs of wanting to make such a move in the past.


Players that have already purchased Save the World are likely to expect some form of reward if the game does become free. Owners of the founder’s pack have previously been presented with the exclusive Warpaint and Rose Team Leader outfits.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
