Microsoft has Declared a Brand New Xbox One S 1TB Package that comes with a full-game download of Fortnite Battle Royale, some free in-game Money, a few timed-exclusive Fortnite Products, and one-month trial for subscription services Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.The package will be available worldwide starting this week; it costs $300 (roughly Rs. 21,800) in the US. Gadgets 360 has achieved to Microsoft India on availability and pricing in the nation and will update this story if we hear backagain.
The game is free for everybody, so that’s not really worth mentioning in a hardware package. As for money, you get 2,000 V-Bucks, which Microsoft claims is enough to get a Battle Pass — a new Fortnite season is around the corner — and some in-game products. But it’s the last of those that is definitely the most interesting of the lot: a Eon cosmetic set including Legendary Eon Character Outfit, Epic Aurora Glider, and Rare Resonator Pickaxe. Microsoft stated”you can find [them] first on Xbox One”, which suggests they won’t be always exclusive.
In its statement, Microsoft noticed that Fortnite on Xbox One supports cross-platform play with players on Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Nintendo Switch. That is probably a slight jab at its console-rival Sony, which blocks cross-play on PS4 along with other consoles, namely Xbox One and Switch. Sony has refused to budge despite pressure from gamers, settling on the debate that”PlayStation is the ideal place to play”. Obviously, Microsoft has more incentive to play fine given Xbox One has sold half of the units of PS4.
