Fortnite‘s highly anticipated Battle Royale multiplayer survival mode is coming free to all players on every platform—whether you own the main game or not.

Of course, all of Fortnite will eventually be free to play, but at the moment access is limited to those who put down money for the game’s Early Access Bundle. When Epic first announced the game’s PUBG-alike mode, the only reasonable assumption was that only those with paid early access would be able to play. Well, that’s not the case, as a new trailer for the Battle Royale mode confirms it will instead be available as part of a standalone, free-to-play launch on September 26th for everyone across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Players will start the 100-player mode by spawning in the Battle Bus with nothing but a pick-ax and a glider to get them safely to the ground. From there, they must grow their arsenal from armaments found in the world, as well as craft structures for both offensive and defensive applications. The last person standing will be dubbed the winner. For all else fans may want to know, check out the developer’s official Q&A on the mode.

This information page also holds some reassurances for the dedicated fans that already spent money on the PC version of Fortnite last week. Anyone that purchased Fortnite between September 12th and September 19th for the sole reason of accessing Battle Royale need only contact developer Epic Games to be entitled to a refund. The main cooperative game will keep its price until sometime in 2018, but luckily, no competitive items will be sold for Battle Royale, preventing the mode from becoming pay-to-win.

For a brief window, the current public test of Fortnite‘s Battle Royale mode enabled cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but the feature was swiftly dubbed a glitch by the developer and hotfixed out. Microsoft’s Phil Spencer commented on the alleged error, claiming that he would have liked the developer to keep the “bug” active.
