Without a doubt, Fortnite and its free-to-play Battle Royale portion has managed to become a full-scale phenomenon, especially when one takes into consideration how a group of players for the Milwaukee Brewers recently used the stadium’s jumbotron to play the title. In this instance, one team member held a DualShock 4 controller while the action was displayed on-screen, indicating his preferred platform being PlayStation 4. Speaking of the Sony system, Epic Games has now decided to offer a free theme based on the game for the console.
As seen in the tweet below from the official Fortnite Twitter account, PS4 owners can pick up the free theme now by heading over to the PlayStation Store on their consoles where they will find the Fortnite SHAREfactory Theme under SHAREfactory in the Apps section of the store. Of course, should fans not be in the position to access their PS4s at the moment, they can always follow the web link provided in the tweet to get the theme’s offerings of 1 Intro, 1 Outro, 1 Title clip, 9 Backgrounds, 3 Transitions, 12 Stickers, and 6 Fonts.
The official Fortnite SHAREfactory theme is now available on PS4!

For those unaware, this isn’t the first instance of Epic Games doling out Fortnite wares at no additional cost to PS4 fans, as the studio made free items available several months ago for PlayStation Plus subscribers. As it so happens, the contents of the aforementioned PlayStation Plus Celebration Pack are still available now, and PS Plus members will have plenty of time to nab the freebies due to the offer being set to expire on February 1, 2019.
All things considered, there ought to be plenty of PS4 owners who will scoop up the free Fortnite theme without so much as a thought, but it remains to be seen whether or not fans on iOS devices, PC, and Xbox One will eventually receive their own kind of freebie. Nevertheless, at least iOS, PC, and Xbox One players have access to the title, as Nintendo fans are still completely left out in the cold without a Switch port.
Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
