Epic lets Youtuber, Streamer and Co. profit from ingame purchases of their fans in Fortnite during an event.
Epic’s latest Event Support a Creator focuses on the content creators around Fortnite. These include Youtuber, Streamer and Cosplayer. Anyone who creates content around Fortnite will receive a share of the event’s profits when fans buy V bucks in-game for the real money currency.
The developer wants to honor and support everyone who creates content around Fortnite. The event starts next week on Monday, October 8th with the next Fortnite update and runs until December 31st.
In order to participate, fans only need to select Support a Creator when buying in the shop or via the Loot tab in “Save the World”. Then simply enter the Epic tag (the username) of your favorite creator. This remains selected for the rest of the event. Every time you spend V-Bucks (bought or earned in the game), you get a part of the revenue. You have to support a creator for at least 14 days, but you can change after that without any problems.
How to participate as Creator
If you are a Streamer, Youtuber, Cosplayer, Artist, Musician or you create content for Fortnite via another platform, you can apply for the event. Information on how to apply for the “Support a Creator” event can be found on the official website.
