If you ever purchased a blind loot box in Fortnite or Rocket League, you’re getting a refund in in-game currency. This is the result of a class action settlement, and it means that you’ll automatically receive 1,000 Fortnite V-Bucks or 1,000 Rocket League credits if you ever bought a blind loot box in either game.
The settlement itself still has to undergo final approval, but Epic is already providing these refunds ahead of time. The proposed settlement additionally sets aside $26.5 million in “cash and other benefits” to players in the US who wish to file claims of legal harm against the company. Epic will refund up to $50 worth of loot box purchases from valid claims. You can submit a claim on the official Epic Games Settlement site.
Fortnite: Save the World offered blind loot boxes in the form of Loot Llamas until 2019, though no similar system was ever included in the much more popular Fortnite battle royale. Now, Fortnite’s Loot Llamas will show you the item you’re purchasing before you buy. Rocket League ditched loot boxes the same year, shortly after Epic acquired developer Psyonix.
