Fortnite "Undo Purchase" Button Coming

Fortnite "Undo Purchase" Button Coming

A new update for Epic's popular battle royale game Fortnite will introduce a button that allows players to undo a purchase. This is above and beyond Epic's earlier plan to introduce a refund token system. With the "undo" button, players will be able to do just that--undo a purchase. However, there is a small catch.

After making a purchase, you can undo it within a five-minute time window. Another thing to be aware of is that you won't be able to use the undo functionality if you start a match after the purchase.

Explaining the new feature on Reddit, an Epic engineering developer said, "We neither want to add friction for players nor do we want to benefit from accidental purchases or players regretting a purchase."

"As an ongoing iteration, we are going to introduce an 'undo' button to the store page that allows you to easily refund without using up a token within a 5-minute time window, assuming you haven't started a match since purchase," it added.

There is no word on when the "undo" button will be added to Fortnite.

As a free-to-play game, Fortnite relies in part on microtransactions for its sustained growth and to fund new features and content over time. The game reportedly makes lots and lots of money from microtransactions, and it's nice to see the developer now taking steps to help those who accidentally buy something.

In other Fortnite news, the game's new 8.10 update is out now--you can see the full patch notes here to find out everything that's new.

We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.​
