It’s a brand new month so it’s time for a brand new Fortnite Crew Pack to give players a brand new set of items to enhance their battle royale experience by letting them play with some styles unique to subscribers.
The subscription to Fortnite Crew costs £9.99 in the UK or €11.99 in Europe and $11.99 for players in the United States of America and grants players access to that season’s battle pass if they don’t already have it, 1,000 V-bucks and a unique outfit set that changes each month.

Is a Fortnite Crew Subscription Worth It?
Looking at the most recent Crew Pack for July will give us a good idea of the value that the Fortnite Crew subscription gives players each month. Titled “Phaedra Unfazed”, July’s pack has actually added to the usual monthly collection of items by giving players access to Fortnite Save The World. It’s not confirmed whether this feature will continue in future months or not so we won’t take it into consideration here.
So is the crew pack worth it? Let’s figure out how much each part is valued and see. We’ll start with the easiest point of reference—the V-bucks.
Each month of Fortnite Crew gives players 1,000 Vbucks to spend in the Item Shop on whatever they want. This is an easy comparison to make as 1,000 V-bucks are directly purchasable for £6.49 in the United Kingdom, €7.99 in mainland Europe and $7.99 in the United States of America. That means that the guaranteed V-bucks each month already means two-thirds of your monthly fee is already paid off.
Next up we have the Battle Pass perk for the Fortnite Crew subscription. If you don’t have that season’s battle pass, the Fortnite Crew Pack will provide you with it but if you already own it, you will instead be given its value in V-bucks as a one-time refund. The Battle Pass costs 950 V-bucks, meaning that from V-bucks alone, you’re already getting more out of the one-month subscription than it costs.
Finally, we have the featured skin of each month which has an outfit, back bling, glider and pickaxe all designed to match each other. While there isn’t a set-in-stone price for these packs; their cost in V-bucks will often range from 1,800 to 2,200, this alone being enough to justify the cost of the crew pack.
So, overall, Fortnite Crew seems like a great value-for-money subscription for gamers who frequently play the battle royale, with its value approximately double what is paid each month, one-time not including July’s addition of Save The World and the one-time refund of 950 V-bucks.
