  1. Why do you need Xbox Live Gold for Fortnite Battle Royale?


    Like the topic says, Why do you need Xbox Live Gold for Fortnite Battle Royale? Every other platform does not require payment for Fortnites online play. Nintendo Switch doesn't require Nintendo Switch Online and Playstation 4/5 don't require PS+. Not to
    mention Windows PC's don't require any service payment. Why for Xbox, at this point you're just taking money for something that is meant to be free.

    Also not to mention there is no fathomable reason for this, Fortnite does not run on Microsoft/Xbox servers. If it did, It would make sense, but no. Fortnite runs on Epic Games servers.

    Please Xbox, can you guys just let free games be free?

    :)

    fortnite without xbox live gold

    I disagree because if they were to allow Fortnite Battle Royale without the Gold Subscription, it would bring more players to the console and therefore will probably raise demand on the console/other items such as controllers. Fortnite Battle Royale is
    still a popular game, that is why it can bring a positive in the system. We already have other games that need the subscription, already helping to maintain, so why not this game so we can be compared in a more positive way to the other game consoles. That
    is why Sony is doing much better pulling in players because of the ability to play Fortnite Battle Royale for free, unlike Microsoft's "free" gameplay. I'm just stating my opinion, I do play on the Xbox One and I do pay for a Xbox Gold Live Subscription.

    fortnite game

    you may want to take a look thru this site. While fortnite is a free download for the battle royale portion of the game you do need Xbox Live Gold for online multiplayer and most gaems have that in the requirements page.

    Fortnite battle royale requiring xbox live gold !

    THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE XBOX !

    LISTEN , SO IT HAS BEEN YEARS SINCE THAT YOU GUYS ARE MAKING POOR PEOPLE PAY FOR THIS XBOX LIVE GOLD (ONLY FOR
    FORTNITE BATTLE ROYALE CONSIDERING IT IS A FREE TO PLAY GAME ON ALL OTHER CONSOLES EXCEPT FOR XBOX ONE).


    THEREFORE, I REQUEST XBOX ON BEHALF ON ALL OTHER XBOX ONE USERS TO REMOVE XBOX LIVE GOLD ONLY FOR FORTNITE BATTLE ROYALE , JUST DO IT ! PLEASE

    THANKS IF YOU DO BUT SERIOUSLY WHY ARE YOU GUYS NOT RESPONDING (IGNORING) THESE COMMENTS ON THIS !

    EXTRA : UP TO SEASON 6 THERE WAS A GLITCH TO PLAY THIS GAME FOR FREE BUT IN SEASON 6 UPDATES U GUYS PATCHED IT ! HOW RUDE ? JUST FACE THE CONSEQUENSES XBOX ! AND JUST REMOVE XBOX LIVE GOLD JUST FOR FORTNITE
    !
    WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING?

    YOU DO REALISE THAT TYPING IN CAPITALS MEANS YOU'RE SHOUTING RIGHT?

    Anyway, why should Microsoft remove the pay wall for playing online games, even if the online game is "free-to-play"

    I know what your answer will be "Because Sony and Nintendo do it"

    And my answer will be "so what" Sony and Nintendo do a lot of things that Microsoft don't do and vice versa.

    If you cant afford Xbox Live Gold may I suggest you trade in your Xbox and perhaps get a PS4 or Nintendo Switch, because that's the only way you're going to get to play Fortninte for free.

    xbox live

    You will need an XBox Gold membership to play any games online. You can also buy monthly XBox gold cards.
    PS also requires their memberships to play online games

    Except of Fortnite, reason is that they are rising their console profit selling rate by making fortnite free to play without membership

    Then why not xbox can make fortnite free to play without xbox live gold membership
