Fortnite: Players can now receive free loot after watching videos on Youtube
Fortnite and YouTube are hand in hand, and now Epic Games is bringing out a fresh function that provides free cosmetics for users to watch games on YouTube.
The latest project is called “Drops” and enables users to obtain unique Fortnite cosmetics to view certain Fortnite activities by linking their YouTube and Epic Games account. In the past, Epic did comparable stuff on Twitch.
The collaboration makes a ton of sense considering how famous Fortnite content is on YouTube — especially ahead of next week’s Fortnite World Cup.
It is anticipated that the game will attract millions of spectators as top teams compete for a $30 million accumulated prize pool — single teams will compete for a $3 million top award alone.
According to a fresh blog article from Epic Games, players only need to view 20 minutes of a show to get a break. Here is how your account can be linked:
1. Sign in to YouTube in a desktop browser.
2. Go to Accounts and select Settings.
3. Under the “Connected accounts” section, select your Epic Games account.
4. If you do not already have an Epic Games account, create one then start at Step 2.
5. Click or tap Connect
6. Sign in to your Epic Games account.
The first event that will introduce is “Game Jam Hollywood.” The project takes together 16 distinct Fortnite Creative group developers to develop fresh innovative concentrations for the World Cup finals. People who want to obtain some drops from Fortnite can plug in at 12:30pm ET on July 25th. From there, at the end of the month, the next events will be at the World Cup.
The match timeline featuring falls involves:
7/25 – Game Jam Hollywood premiere.
7/26 – Fortnite World Cup Finals Day 1 live broadcast.
7/27 – Fortnite World Cup Finals Day 2 live broadcast.
7/28 – Fortnite World Cup Finals Day 3 live broadcast.
Epic Games and YouTube are planning to use drops in future events, too, which will be announced after the World Cup.
