Towards the end of last year, a game that many would probably consider to be the biggest, most successful game of the current age got a pretty significant boost.
Between its ultra-popular OG season in November and the trio of out-of-left-field collaborations that arrived in December, this game thoroughly trounced other live-service games in terms of playtime.
With those hints alone, you've probably figured out that the game in question is none other than Fortnite - one of the most popular games we support on the Gameflip marketplace. What you couldn't possibly figure out, is the number of hours players spent in Epic Games' monstrous free-to-play title.
According to a report put together by Ampere Analysis, Fortnite saw an absolute explosion in engagement between October and November, with a 146% increase in total hours spent in the game. In case you're curious, that equates to over 1.6 BILLION total hours of play during Fortnite OG — more than Call of Duty Warzone, GTA Online, EA Sports FC 24, and even Roblox.
December saw a further 9% increase past that for even more insanity.
We have consistently covered the latest Fortnite news and happenings right here on the Gameflip blog, and we will definitely continue to do that. However, we wanted to take this time to remind the Gameflip community — or inform the many new Fortnite players — of the many incredible deals we offer on several aspects of the world's hottest game.
The OG season might be over, but there is so much more to enjoy in Fortnite now, and we can help you get the most out of all of it.
Cavalcade of Cosmetics

One of the best things about Fortnite, the feature that keeps people coming back day after day, has to be the insane customization options. There are hundreds of character skins, weapon skins, and emotes to buy and equip, making your Fortnite avatar truly unique.
The problem is, if you want to jump out of the battle bus, build your dreams in Lego Fortnite, or rock out on stage in Fortnite Festival as one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or whatever awesome licensed character is on the Fortnite store that week, you're going to have to pay up. Fortnite thrives on the sales of its cosmetics, after all.
Thankfully though, Gameflip is here with the hook-up.
If you're hunting down a vaulted skin or a long out-of-print bundle, the best place to look is the Gameflip marketplace. Our community of millions of gamers regularly list these items at steep discounts from what they cost while they were in the Fortnite store.
Our Fortnite deals are nothing new. Gameflip has been serving up the best deals for Fortnite cosmetics for years! But now, with all the new experiences and added functionality Fortnite has added over the past few months, the value we provide for players just grew exponentially.
Get Tons of V-Bucks Without Spending All Your Real-Bucks

Next up is the very core of the Fortnite experience — the in-game currency that makes the entire ecosystem go: V-Bucks.
Fortnite fans have gotten caught up over the years trying to figure out exact exchange rates and such for the currency, but here's all you need to know — buying V-Bucks can get pretty expensive. When bought directly from Epic or through major retailers, packs of V-Bucks can set you back anywhere from $8.99 for 1,000 V-Bucks to $89.99 for 13,500 V-Bucks.
When just a single character skin or weapon cosmetic can cost 800 V-Bucks or even more, you know you're going to need an awful lot of V-Bucks to get all the skins you want.
That's where Gameflip comes in.
Aside from our amazing discounts on cosmetics, Gameflip also regularly features listings for V-Bucks at great prices you won't find anywhere else. We make it easier than ever to fill up your Fortnite wallets so that you never miss out on a limited edition skin or item ever again.
Just remember, if you're on the hunt for V-Bucks at heavily discounted rates, Gameflip is the only place you need to look.

With the insane boost Season OG and the subsequent additions of Lego Fortnite, Fortnite Festival, and Rocket Racing gave the game, there's no doubt that Epic has much more planned for Fortnite in 2024 and beyond.
Whether that means the return of OG or even more game collaborations to push the platform further, you can always count on Gameflip to be there with the best deals on V-Bucks, cosmetics, and whatever else you might need to take your Fortnite experience to the next level.
