A little news update due to this discount change. Apple has removed Fortnite from the app store because of this discount which makes it more cheaper to pay direct then using Apple. The owners of Fortnite have sent in legal documents challenging the removal. This is a unfolding story so stay turned down the line for more updates.

Update #2 - Google Play has also now removed Fortnite app!
