The maker of popular video game Fortnite has agreed to pay $520m to resolve claims from US regulators that it violated child privacy laws and tricked users into making purchases.
The Federal Trade Commission says the firm duped players with deceptive interfaces that could trigger purchases while the game loaded.
It also accused it of using "privacy-invasive" default settings.
The company says no developer creates a game with the intention of ending up here while adding that they accepted this agreement because they want Epic to be at the forefront of consumer protection and provide the best experience for our players.
The FTC says that the game, which matches strangers around the world for interactive battles, was aimed at children and teens, but despite that, its developers failed to comply with rules regarding parental consent - even after making changes to address internal and public concerns.
