Microsoft has followed in Nintendo's footsteps and released a Fortnite console bundle with a whole bunch of exclusives that come along with it.
Fortnite has taken the world by storm during the little more than a year that it has been in existence. One of the ways its developers Epic has done that is by making it as widely available to as many gamers as possible. If you have a current generation console, a PC, or even just an iPhone or an Android then you can join in the madness that is Fortnite.
Unsurprisingly, the platforms want Fortnite to be on them just as much as Epic does. Some have even released Fortnite exclusives in order to try and tempt players to them. Sony has offered up three different PS Plus exclusive Fortnite bundles to players in 2018 alone, and Nintendo recently released a Switch bundle whose theme was based around the increasingly popular battle royale game.
Clearly, Nintendo must be on to something as Microsoft has followed in its rival's footsteps. It has released its very own Fortnite-themed console bundle and it comes with a whole hat full of exclusives that will only be available to those who opt for it. The console included in the bundle is a 1 TB Xbox One S and it comes with a skin that will make your Fortnite avatar look as if they are wearing the Xbox themselves.
If you're in the market for a new Xbox One and have a slight Fortnite obsession like the rest of us, then maybe this bundle is exactly what you're looking for. If it is, then the whole thing will set you back $299.99 according to The Verge, not bad for a brand new console with 1 TB of memory. Plus, as well as looking a little like Master Chief from Halo, you'll have a pickaxe and glider to match.
The other bonus of playing Fortnite on Xbox One now, or any console for that matter, is as of this week, you can now finally cross-play with gamers on PlayStation 4. Sony has finally caved and agreed to let players do so, but for now, it will only be on Fortnite. We are fairly certain that it will be a success, so prepare for PlayStation to go full cross-platform in the near future.
