Epic Games is sending players V-Bucks to settle 'Fortnite' loot box class action lawsuit
Fortnite: Save the World players who purchased random loot boxes when they were available can expect 1,000 V-Bucks to be added to their account in the coming days. The move is part of Epic Games' effort to resolve a class action lawsuit against loot boxes that was approved by the North Carolina Supreme Court. Epic sold the Blind Item boxes for Save the World (and for Rocket League) until early 2019 when it was decided to replace V-Buck Llamas with X-Ray Llamas so players could see what they were getting before buying a box .
While the deal is aimed at US players only, Epic says it "will bring this benefit to players worldwide". You don't even have to do something like a file to get the in-game money. As The Verge notes, applicants typically need to file a claim to get benefit from a settlement. When asked, Jeffrey Jacobson, a partner in the law firm that Epic represents, said of the release, "First, it's the right thing and we have a strong sense of random boxes of loot. Second, we feel good about the settlement." We hope our players agree with us. "
In addition, Epic Games provided $ 26.5 million in cash "to resolve claims made by players' purchases." It could be used to pay legal fees or to pay players who have suffered legal harm, including minors who have purchased items with their own money, with or without parental consent. Affected minors can claim up to $ 50 or 13,500 V-Bucks through the official billing website. These billing terms also apply to Rocket League players who purchased random loot boxes for the game. This means that they will receive 1,000 Rocket League credits and can also claim more.
