Epic Games has partnered with YouTube to launch a new feature that will make Fortnite fans definitely happy: the Drop! Basically, these are free rewards that can be obtained simply by watching selected video content related to the battle royale. Let’s find out how it works.
In order to receive the rewards, it is essential to connect the Epic Games account you use to access Fortnite and your personal YouTube account. To do this, follow this procedure:
- Access YouTube using a desktop browser;
- Open Account and select Settings;
- In the “Linked Accounts” section, select your Epic Games account (if you don’t already have an Epic Games account, create one and start in Step 2);
- Click or tap Connect;
- Log in to your Epic Games account.
We report that the linking function between accounts may not yet be available, but Epic Games has ensured that it will be activated within the next 24 hours.
Once connected, all you have to do is watch the selected programs. The first will be represented by the Hollywood Game Jam, which will begin at 18:30 (GMT +2) on July 25th. During the live sixteen of the best community creators will come together to team up and create new games in Creative mode for the Fortnite World Cup final. Even the World Cup finals will allow you to get a drop. Here is the complete schedule of scheduled transmissions:
