Streaming Fortnite just got a lot more interesting, as Epic Games is offering financial support for streamers during its ‘Support-A-Creator’ event.
If you stream on either YouTube, Twitch, or have any Fortnite-themed artistic accounts anywhere, you’ll have from the next Fortnite update until the 31st December 2018 to cash in, and the way it works seems pretty simple…
The official Epic Games blog states: “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…
“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.”
According to Epic, video makers, streamers, storytellers, artists, cosplayers, musicians, and community builders will all be eligible for the scheme.
