Microsoft has announced a new Xbox One S 1TB Package that comes with a full-game download of Fortnite Battle Royale, a Few free in-game currency, a Couple of timed-exclusive Fortnite Products, and one-month trial for subscription services Xbox Game Walk and Xbox Live Gold.The package will be available worldwide starting this week; it costs $300 (roughly Rs. 21,800) at the US. Gadgets 360 has achieved to Microsoft India on availability and pricing in the nation and will upgrade this story if we hear back.
The game is free for everybody, so that is not really worth mentioning in a hardware bundle. As for currency, you receive 2,000 V-Bucks, which Microsoft claims is enough to pick up a Battle Pass — a new Fortnite season is round the corner — and a few in-game items. Nonetheless, it’s the final of these who is definitely the most interesting of the lot: an Eon cosmetic set such as Legendary Eon Character Outfit, Epic Aurora Glider, and Rare Resonator Pickaxe. Microsoft said”you’ll find [them] first on Xbox One”, which implies they will not be always exclusive.
In its announcement, Microsoft noticed that Fortnite on Xbox One affirms cross-platform play players on Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Nintendo Switch. That is likely a small jab at its console-rival Sony, which blocks cross-play on PS4 with other consoles, namely Xbox One and Switch. Sony has refused to budge despite pressure from players, settling to the argument that”PlayStation is the best place to play”. Of course, Microsoft has more incentive to play with nice given Xbox One has offered half the components of PS4.
