Fortnite may be a free-to-play game, but that hasn’t stopped console companies from creating bundles that focus on the extremely popular game. The latest of these bundles is Microsoft’s new Xbox One S bundle, which comes with 2,000 V-Bucks and a few exclusive cosmetics, which Microsoft revealed during its Inside Xbox stream Tuesday afternoon.

The V-Bucks total up to about a $20 value overall, but it’s the other cosmetics that represent the real draw for this bundle. The skin, a legendary item called Eon, is going to be an Xbox exclusive, and can only be obtained through this particular bundle as of now. The bundle also comes with a pickaxe that is a recoloring of last season’s Onslaught, as well as a recolored glider based on the Terminus model. Both of these are exclusive to the bundle as well.

According to Xbox Wire, this new bundle will retail for $299, the standard price for an Xbox One S, and will be available in stores later this week. Pre-orders are available at the Microsoft Store and Best Buy.

The announcement of this bundle is timed closely with the launch of Fortnite’s sixth content season. That’s set to go live later this week and will feature a variety of new map changes and cosmetic additions to the game.
