With the upcoming holiday season, Fortnite is allowing players on every platform (except iOS) to gift each other. Gifting came along with update 6.31, and it’ll be available for one week. Epic has stated within a blog post, that this is the “initial gifting period,” hinting at possible return.
With the new update, the item shop now allows users to purchase items for themselves, or “buy as a gift.” After selecting this, players are then able to select the recipient. To gift items, players will have to be using a two-step authentication to be enabled.
Additionally, players must be friends for a minimum of 48 hours, and players are only able to send three gifts every 24 hours. Also, there are no refunds available on gifts.
