This is a United States based action. If you did not reside in the United States or its territories at the time you made the purchases at issue, you are not eligible to participate in this Settlement.


A class action settlement with Epic Games, Inc. (“Defendant” or “Epic Games”) has been reached. 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 random loot boxes 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. The case is Zanca, et al. v. Epic Games, Inc., Case No. 21-CVS-534, currently pending in the Superior Court of Wake County, North Carolina before the Honorable Keith Gregory, General Court of Justice, Superior Court Division (the “Action”). The proposed Settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Epic Games, and it denies that it violated the law. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. Rather, to avoid the time, expense, and uncertainty of litigation, the Parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit. The Court has granted preliminary approval of the Settlement and has conditionally certified the Settlement Class for purposes of settlement only.

Settlement Class means all persons in the United States who, at any time between July 1, 2015, and February 25, 2021, had a Fortnite or Rocket League account that they used to play either game on any device and in any mode, and (a) exchanged in game virtual currency for any in-game benefit, or (b) made a purchase of virtual currency or other in-game benefit for use within Fortnite or Rocket League.

As part of the Settlement, Epic Games will automatically add 1,000 Fortnite V-Bucks to each Fortnite: Save the World account that was used to acquire a random-item "Loot Llama" loot box, and 1,000 Rocket League Credits to each Rocket League account that was used to acquire a random item "Crate" loot box. Additionally, you had to submit a Claim Form to receive your choice of a cash benefit or additional V-Bucks/Credits, as set forth in more detail in this website and in the Settlement Agreement.

Submit a Claim Form As part of this Settlement, Epic Games will send 1,000 Fortnite V-Bucks to each Fortnite account that was used to acquire a random item “Loot Llama” loot box, and 1,000 Rocket League Credits to each Rocket League account that was used to acquire a random item “Crate” loot box, the contents of which were not known before opening. You may also submit a Claim Form for additional benefits for real money in-game purchase(s) if you believe the purchase gives rise to a claim of consumer fraud, breach of contract, or other claim for damages, or if you wish to obtain a partial refund for a purchase you made as a minor with your own money and without parental permission.
