The holiday season is right around the corner and console manufacturers have the bundles to prove it. Earlier today, during a new Inside Xbox broadcast, Microsoft announced the Xbox One S Fortnite bundle which, you guessed it, is a bundle pairing an Xbox One S console and Epic Games’ battle-royale Fortnite.

While it may seem odd for Microsoft to promote a bundle that includes a free-to-play game, the Xbox One S Fortnite bundle contains a lot of goodies. For starters, the bundle contains Fortnite‘s Eon cosmetic set– a stylish, futuristic cosmetic set that includes the Legendary Eon Character Outfit, Rare Resonator Pickaxe, and Epic Aurora Glider. Additionally, the bundle contains 2,000 V-Bucks (Fortnite‘s in-game currency) as well as one-month trials of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Games Pass. Seeing as Microsoft just announced that Wolfenstein: The New Order, Metro Redux, and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero are coming to Xbox Games Pass, this bundle seems like a great deal for a battle-royale enthusiast looking to pick up an Xbox One S.
Microsoft isn’t the only console manufacturer trying to cash-in on Fortnite mania. Earlier this month Nintendo announced its own Nintendo Switch Fortnite bundle, which will come with 1,000 V-Bucks and Fortnite‘s cosmetic Double Helix Set.
The Xbox One S Fortnite bundle will be available for $299.99 later this week. For additional information, you can check out Microsoft’s website here.
