Fortnite’s premium content, the ‘Battle Pass,’ gives the player exclusive content to access and play. Apart from its exclusive content that spans over the entire game, the Battle Pass is crucial to acquiring specific characters and challenges to fully unlock its skin and abilities.
According to Sporting News, Fortnite’s Battle Pass costs roughly around $25 that translates to 2,800 V-Bucks, the in-game currency. A second option costs $10 and gives 950 V-Bucks. Players can gain more V-Bucks upon unlocking the game’s Battle Pass and earn as much as 1,500.
The Battle Pass purchase immediately grants players the eight playable characters to go around and wreak havoc against others. However, these characters need hard work and serious game time for unlocks at a specific tier.
Fortnite requires extensive game hours to work one’s way up the Tiers to experience each unique Marvel hero or villain. In Wolverine’s case, players are set to a series of adventures and missions to unlock the notorious X-Man in his classic yellow and blue suit.
