Preliminary Settlement for Epic Loot Box Class Action Suit

In other legal news regarding Epic Games, a preliminary settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit over loot boxes in Fortnite and Rocket League. Purchasers of lootboxes in either game will automatically receive 1,000 V-Bucks or 1,000 Rocket League Credits, as appropriate. There's no word on how many V-Bucks the lawyers in this case will make. There is also the possibility of collecting some real cash money in certain cases:
A class action settlement with Epic Games, Inc. (“Epic”) has received preliminary approval from the Superior Court of North Carolina, Tenth Judicial District. Under the settlement, all U.S. players of Fortnite: Save the World and Rocket League who bought a random item loot box in either game before Epic Games discontinued them will receive certain benefits immediately and automatically. The settlement also provides up to $26.5 million in cash and other benefits to U.S.-based Fortnite and Rocket League players to resolve claims arising from players’ purchases of Fortnite and Rocket League in-game items.

Beginning today, Epic will deposit 1,000 V-Bucks, the Fortnite virtual currency, or 1,000 Rocket League Credits, into the accounts of U.S. players who bought a random item loot box. These deposits will be automatic and players do not need to do anything to claim them, though it may take a few days for all eligible players to receive them.

Additionally, players who believe they were harmed or damaged by virtue of their in-game Fortnite or Rocket League purchases and meet certain criteria can file a claim for a cash payment of up to $50 or a virtual currency deposit of up to 13,500 V-Bucks (in Fortnite) or 13,000 Credits (in Rocket League). Legal guardians of players who are minors that made in-game purchases without parental permission can seek partial refunds of up to $50, but must agree to the closure of their child’s Epic Games accounts.

Fortnite and Rocket League players who made in-game purchases can learn more information about the settlement by visiting www.EpicLootBoxSettlement.com. Important dates and documents will be posted on that website.
