So, you want to get into this Fortnite: Battle Royale thing the entire world is on about, but you don't know where to start? Epic Games plans to give you a hand-up this week with a $4.99 USD Starter Pack that includes an exclusive skin, unique "Back Bling," and 600 V-bucks (Fortnite's purchasable hard currency).
The Starter Pack launches tomorrow (March 27) and be available through April 1. Redditor "Souce10" posted a pic of the deal on the Fortnite subreddit, which Fortnite Intel confirmed. Fortnite Intel also points out the deal was leaked once before, but it appears this time the deal is…the real deal.
The deal is probably worth picking up for the V-bucks alone, since your $4.99 USD technically gets you 100 free V-bucks. Given Fortnite Battle Royale's popularity, V-bucks are valuable, coveted, and a surprising point of conflict between Battle Royale players and fans of Fortnite's single-player Save the World campaign. In fact, Epic Games' runaway property runs deep.
