Fortnite - players diving in Epic Games

Fortnite Battle Royale may be a downloadable free-to-play game, but that won’t stop its creator from getting their mega-hit on store shelves this holiday season. Developer Epic Games, in a partnership with Warner Bros., is releasing a brand new cosmetic bundle for Fortnite that will be available as a download, but also in retail stores. The new bundle, called the Darkfire Bundle, will package together what Epic claims is $80 worth of in-game cosmetics for $29.99 when it is released on Nov. 5.

The Darkfire Bundle will include three new Legendary skins, three Legendary dual-wield pickaxes, three Legendary Back Blings, three Epic Wraps, and one new emote. These 13 items will make this Fortnite’s biggest bundle to date.

Previous Fortnite bundles generally included just one or two skins along with a few other cosmetics. These bundles were also usually platform specific, like the special Xbox or PlayStation skins, but there have been bundles like Deep Freeze which came out on multiple platforms. The Darkfire Bundle will be available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, both at retail or the the systems’ individual online stores.

Update: While the initial announcement from WB only mentioned that the retail Darkfire Bundle would be coming to consoles, Epic has provided a statement to Polygon that notes that PC, Mac, and mobile players will also have the chance to buy the bundle digitally.

“Yesterday, it was announced that the Fortnite: Darkfire Bundle will be arriving at retail on Nov. 5, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. In addition, the bundle will also be available digitally across all platforms including PC, Mac, and mobile,” Epic said.
