The Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) fined Epic Games 1.1 million euros for exploiting children's vulnerabilities in its Fortnite game through unfair commercial practices and dark patterns. The fines were for phrases encouraging children to make purchases and deceptive countdowns pressuring quick purchases. Epic Games is required to cease these practices by June 10, 2024, by reducing uncertainty about item availability and extending decision periods for minors regarding purchases.
