Back in Season 3 of Fortnite, Epic Games introduced a Self-Service Cosmetics Return system for its wildly popular multiplayer sandbox survival title in Update 3.6, but the developer had to temporarily disable the feature after discovering an unforeseen issue with it in order to make some usability improvements. Now, it looks as if the studio is set to bring the feature back again starting at the beginning of next month, on June 1, 2018.
This much was revealed by way of the Twitter account known as Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks, as fans of the game can see the tweet below wherein a screen captured image of an email from Epic Games’ staff has confirmed the Self-Service Cosmetics Return feature goes live again next month. The message goes on to state that players will be allowed to return up to three cosmetic purchases for a refund of V-Bucks over the duration of the lifetime of one’s account.

While the resurgence of Fortnite‘s Self-Service Cosmetics Return system will likely be welcomed with open arms by Fortnite fans, it’s important to realize that there will potentially be additional stipulations involved with the process of receiving a refund. After all, Epic Games’ original update that included the feature also stated that items bought by players would only be eligible for refunds within 30 days of having been purchased.
All things considered, should the Self-Service Cosmetics Return system work as intended, then Fortnite fans will certainly see the feature as a win, especially since they might have spent their V-Bucks on one superficial item they liked initially only to have an even cooler looking one be introduced shortly thereafter. Hopefully, the return system will go live before Epic Games unleashes a slew of new skins, pickaxes, and gliders to the hybrid construction shooter.
Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and is scheduled to launch this summer on Android.
