Fortnite is still one of the most popular games out there and there’s no stopping it. Microsoft wants to cater to Fortnite players on its gaming platform by providing them with a limited edition of its console that boasts the game’s signature colors. An Xbox One S in a nicely done purple color doesn’t sound that bad, to be honest.
Leaked images have surfaced which show that Microsoft will soon offer a Fortnite bundle with a purple Xbox One S. According to WinFuture, Microsoft is going to release this purple Xbox One S in a few weeks.
This bundle is meant for Fortnite fans so it will include a new skin called “Dark Vertex,” 2000 V-Bucks worth of in-game currency, as well as a month’s worth of EA Access, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Game Pass. There’s no need for a copy of the game since Fortnite Battle Royale is free-to-play. Microsoft has confirmed, though, precisely when it will start selling this limited edition console.
It’s expected to arrive with 1TB of storage and the Blu-ray drive for $299. Perhaps the company might announce it during its June 9th press conference at E3 2019. That would certainly be the appropriate time and place to announce something of this sort.
