A father and his son claim that the makers of the game Fortnite use manipulative tactics to encourage players, especially minors, to make in-game purchases.

Plantiff Steve Altes says that his son, R.A., is a minor who plays the popular video game Fortnite.

Fortnite is an “open-world survival video game in which players collect weapons, tools, and resources, also commonly referred to as loot, in order to survive and advance in the game.”

According to Altes, “loot” is acquired either by earning points in the game or by using real-world money to make in-game purchases.
