600 V-Bucks and one of the game’s best skins make this a steal

Epic Games

It’s never easy to know exactly which cosmetic item to get first in a free-to-play game. But Epic is making the choice easy for new players with a brand new starter pack for Fortnite Battle Royale.

The starter pack, which was released Tuesday, March 27, sells for $4.99 on the in-game store and includes a cosmetic backpack, as well as 600 of the game’s free-to-play currency called V-Bucks. This is a slightly better price than the normal 1,000 V-Bucks for $9.99, making this a pretty good deal even if there weren’t any bonuses attached.

While the V-Bucks and the backpack are nice, the real draw of this pack is its exclusive Rogue Agent player skin that makes the pack just as likely to appeal to the game’s most dedicated players as it is to new Fortnite players. This is one of the best skins Epic has ever released and at just under five dollars, it’s also one of the cheapest.

It’s unclear if this starter pack is available for a limited time only, or if it will stick around indefinitely. Either way, the pack is available for purchase right now in Fortnite Battle Royale’s in-game store.
