Fortnite has announced a new initiative that will allow players to support their favourite content creators.
This is a breaking story, so for now, here’s what Epic Games has had to say:
“The past year has seen an incredible amount of Creator content on YouTube, Twitch, and other platforms, celebrating the world of Fortnite.
“To show support for all of the Creators out there, we’re excited to announce the Support-A-Creator Event!
“During the Support-A-Creator Event, Creators will earn money when supporters spend V-Bucks. Choose your favorite Creator and Epic will do the rest.
“The event runs from next week’s Fortnite update through December 31.”

How do you support a Creator?
“Once the event starts, go to the Item Shop in Battle Royale or the Loot tab in Save the World and select “Support a Creator”. Enter the Epic tag of your Creator in the dialogue box. As long as they are your selected Creator, they’ll continue to share in your spent V-Bucks for the duration of the event. This applies to free V-Bucks that you’ve earned (from gameplay, events, or contests) as well as any V-Bucks you’ve purchased.
“You can change the Creator you support at any time. Your support for a Creator lasts 14 days. After that, you can reselect your Creator or choose a new one.”
Which Creators can participate in the event?
Epic Games describes creators as “video makers, streamers, storytellers, artists, cosplayers, musicians, and community builders.”
All Creators are welcome to apply for the new initiative.
