Fortnite's Darkfire Bundle is the most expensive yet, but there's an awful lot included with it for players who are willing to fork over the cash.
Fortnite is a global phenomenon that has generated billions of dollars in revenue for its developers, Epic Games. That's despite the game being free to play, so how exactly does Epic make so much money from it? Well, despite players needing to spend no money whatsoever in order to play Fortnite, a great many of them do so anyway.
That money is spent on seasonal Battle Passes and most of all, cosmetic improvements. Epic has been very careful not to include purchasable items that will improve a player's chances of clinching that elusive Victory Royale. Back bling and fancy pickaxes, on the other hand, are fair game, and Fortnite's latest cosmetic bundle is available now in the in-game store.
It's called the Darkfire Bundle and is the most expensive to have ever hit Fortnite, reports Fortnite Intel. There's a good reason for that, as it includes an awful lot of exclusive swag, such as three skins, three types of back bling, three pickaxes, three wraps, and an emote thrown in for good measure. The bundle was discovered by data miners a long time ago, but as always with clues in Fortnite's code, there's no knowing when it will arrive in-game, if ever.

The Darkfire Bundle's lead skin is the Power Chord Outfit. As you might have guessed, it comes with a pretty sweet electric guitar-themed back bling. Although the Power Chord skin is Fortnite's pick as the best of the three, our favorite is the Molten Omen Outfit. Match it up with the molten-themed wrap, pickaxe, and accompanying back bling, and players will have quite the look down on the island.
The Darkfire Bundle was first spotted on the New Zealand PlayStation Store but since it is now being flaunted by Epic, it should be available worldwide. As mentioned above, it doesn't come cheap. The bundle costs $30, but just think about how much that includes. Chances are it will be replacing Chapter 2's first bundle, the Final Reckoning Bundle. If you haven't bought it yet, you may have already missed out.
