Fortnite players and Xbox collectors may recall that there were reports from March that suggested Microsoft was preparing to release a Fortnite console. We now know those reports were spot on now that the console has been revealed to match up perfectly with leaked images that revealed its bold purple colors. It’s officially called the Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition Bundle, and it comes with the following content.
“Own the Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition Bundle and battle to be the last one standing,” a description of the bundle on Microsoft’s site reads. “This bundle includes a gradient purple Xbox One S console, a purple Xbox Wireless Controller, a Legendary Outfit, an Epic Glider, a Rare Pickaxe (available in Fortnite Battle Royale and Fortnite Creative modes) and 2000 V-Bucks.”
The bundle is currently priced at $399, and it’ll first be available on June 7th. The official Xbox account on Twitter shared a closer look at the console as well as the cosmetics that come with the bundle.

This isn’t one of Microsoft’s new discless consoles though, so you’re a Fortnite player who’s still got plenty of games in their physical form, you’ll still be able to make use of this console. An Xbox One S All-Digital console that’s modeled after Fortnite’s themes certainly would’ve made sense though considering how big the game’s become and that the whole point of that console is playing games digitally which is the only way to do battle in Fortnite.
The Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition Bundle releases on June 7th.
