It's Fortnite's cooperative campaign mode that puts you and three other friends up against hordes of enemies. And while Fortnite Save the World was supposed to go free-to-play this year. Epic Games has confirmed that this is no longer the case. If you're looking to play Fortnite Save the World now, the game is 50 percent off on all variants for this week.
