Fortnite Reveals New In-Game Concert Series Amid Bitter Legal Battle with Apple
The wildly popular battle royale mass multiplayer game Fortnite has been continually collaborating with musicians such as Marshmello, Diplo, and Travis Scott, pushing the envelope of what's really possible within the world of video games. Fortnite has now announced a brand new concert series within its "Party Royale" mode to kick off with singer and rapper Dominic Fike, but users hoping to stream the shows via their Apple devices may find themselves royally peeved.
Amid a bitter legal battle stemming from Apple's accusation that Fortnite creator Epic Games introduced its own in-app payment system to circumvent the tech giant's 30% transaction fee on all digital payments, Fortnite is currently unavailable on the App Store. The lawsuit came to be after Epic refused to change its current policy of offering a 20% price discount to users who purchase in-game currency directly through the game, effectively bypassing Apple's payment system.
