Epic Games is adding a new subscription service to Fortnite, the company announced on Tuesday. The service will be called Fortnite Crew, and it will be a one-stop shop for players to get all kinds of cosmetics every month.

Fortnite Crew will cost players $11.99 a month, and will include the full battle pass for whatever the current season is, which usually costs $9.50 on its own. The subscription service will also grant players 1,000 V-Bucks every month, a $10 value, as well as an exclusive monthly cosmetics bundle. These items will remain exclusive to the subscription — Epic said it will never sell or give them away to non-Crew members.

In terms of value, the subscription really comes down to how much Fortnite you’re playing, and whether or not you want more cosmetics for the game. As far as value goes, the V-Bucks nearly pay for the whole subscription, and can get you a reasonably priced skin in the store. This means that the exclusive bundles are almost also bonus, as well as the battle pass, which sticks around for a full season (usually around three months).

Fortnite Crew will launch on Dec. 2, the start of Chapter 2 season 5. Players that subscribe to the service when it launches will get the exclusive Galaxia Outfit and Style, as well as the Cosmic Llamacorn Pickaxe, and Fractured World Back Bling.
