Xbox announces Fortnite console bundle with exclusive outfit, glider and pickaxe

Xbox is releasing a Fortnite console bundle containing exclusive in-game items.

As well as containing an Xbox One S with a one-terabyte hard drive, a wireless controller and a full-game download of Fortnite Battle Royale, the pack will also feature the “full Eon cosmetic set”.

The set includes the Legendary Eon Character Outfit, Epic Aurora Glider and Rare Resonator Pickaxe.

The bundle also contains 2,000 V-Bucks and one-month trails for Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.

Fortnite Battle Royale is a free multiplayer game that pits 100 players against each other in destructible maps. The aim is to kill others while avoiding getting killed yourself. Gamers can fight alone or in teams, while trying to find weapons and creating forts.

It has proved popular since its launch last year, attracting more than 100 million players so far.

“This Xbox One S Fortnite bundle comes packed with in-game content you can find first on Xbox One. Even more: enjoy a fun and inclusive experience by engaging in cross-network play with your friends on PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android – even save your progress across platforms,” Will Tuttle, Editor of Xbox Wire, wrote in a blog post.

New Limited Time Modes are always appearing in game, including epic 50v50 team fights or battles featuring nothing but legendary loot in Solid Gold.”

The bundle is available in the UK and Ireland from early October, priced at £249.99.
