There’s no such thing as free V-Bucks

Posted on December 24, 2018 by

Don’t give your account details to any website claiming to offer free V-Bucks, they’re trying to scam you. Epic Games – the developer of Fortnite – posted a warning on Twitter, reminding everyone only to enter their password on the official Fortnite page. Be wary of people offering cheap V-Bucks on auction sites like eBay too – if a price seems too good to be true, it usually is.

If you need to purchase more, 1,000 V-Bucks costs £7.99/$9.99 on the PSN Store, Microsoft Store or Fortnite Store.

For your money, you’re earning 1,300 V-Bucks, as well as more than 90 other rewards, including:

  • 6 news skins: The Reaper (John Wick), Elite Agent, Rust Lord, Moonwalker, Dark Voyager and Mission Specialist
  • 4 Emotes: Salute, Take the L, Best Mates and The Robot

Unlike the Fortnite:Twitch Prime packs, these skins and emotes unlock as you play the game, so the more you put in, the more you get out. Plus, the V-Buck rewards will give you enough to buy another Blue tier skin.

Get V-Bucks from Fortnite: Save the World –

A more consistent way to build up v buck generator over time is by purchasing and playing Fortnite’s PvE horde mode: Save the World. You get V-Bucks for doing tons of different activities and they transfer over to your Battle Royale character too. The cheapest Standard Founder’s pack usually costs £32.99/$39.99 on PlayStation and £34.99/$39.99 on Xbox One. However, it’s often on sale for much less – a few weeks ago it went down to £15.99/$19.99.

Unfortunately this method won’t work on Fortnite Mobile, since Save the World needs a lot more CPU power, and is only available on PC and console.

Save the World isn’t updated as regularly as Battle Royale – which is on Fortnite patch 3.4 already – but is still really fun and worth your time.

 

 

 

Epic said that invites and codes would be coming “later in the week

Posted on December 21, 2018 by

For right now, we’re in the testing phase: sign-ups began on Monday for an invite-only pilot program on iOS, with more invites going out in multiple waves leading up to launch. Right now, fans are waiting for word from developer Epic Games: on Monday Epic said that invites and codes would be coming “later in the week,” so it should be any day now. Just don’t believe the fakes.

As with anything popular, there seems to be an epidemic of scams and fakes exploding across social media. The crux of the scams is that Epic will be sending out extra codes to anyone who gets an invite, meaning that people might credibly have extra codes to give away. That means that Twitter is flooded with people claiming to have those extras — I won’t link here. Most appear to be fairly innocuous and are just asking for likes and retweets, but some might ask you to initiate a download — none are real.

Yesterday, Epic said that it still had not sent out any invites, and it has yet to update that across any channels. The developer likened these scams to the “fortnite v bucks generator” Tweets that dot the replies to every official announcement:

Toon Blast breached $200 million within the game’s

Posted on December 21, 2018 by

Sensor Tower reports that Toy Blast hack earned $36.9 million this August alone, marking a year-over-year increase of 36 per cent. That month, Toy Blast ranked 48th for revenue among all apps worldwide.

Most player spending came from the US which brought in $312 million in revenue, accounting for 71 per cent of the total. The UK came in a distant second, with 4.1 per cent of the paying audience at $18 million.

Toon Town

While Peak Games’ first Blast title continues to do well, its follow-up has also found overwhelming success.

Revenue for 2017’s Toon Blast breached $200 million within the game’s first year on sale. Much of this success came from a particularly star-studded marketing campaign.

Thanks to a $100 million cash infusion following a deal with Zynga, Peak Games used the funding to partner with Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds. Over three months, the developer worked with Reynolds to create an extensive and reactive advertising campaign for the mobile puzzler.

Peak Games was ranked 10th in PocketGamer.biz’s top 50 Mobile Developer list for 2018.

The ride platform is another sight to take in all by itself as its design is jam-packed with so many elements. As you come around the corner of the queue, you immediately take in the sights of a Yahtzee game box, Crayon-drawn plans of the Slinky Dog attraction, more building blocks, books and a Slinky Dog-Gone Wrong Board Game box and its accompanying game board, all of which make up the main structure of the ride platform.
