The new Xbox One S Fortnite Special Edition bundle leaked a couple of weeks ago, but Microsoft has finally made it official. The purple-colored console and matching controller will launch on June 7, along with the just-announced Greatest Xbox Deals of the Year sale.
"The new Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition bundle includes a Special Edition purple 1TB Xbox One S, the Dark Vertex cosmetic set featuring Legendary Outfit, Epic Glider, and Rare Pickaxe (available in free Battle Royale and Creative modes only), 2000 v-bucks, and one month Xbox Live Gold subscription and Xbox Game Pass trial," the blog post reads.
Just ahead of E3, this massive sale will offer big discounts on Xbox bundles, including $100 off Xbox One X and $50 off the aforementioned Xbox One S Fortnite Special Edition Bundle. The $249 Xbox One S All-Digital Edition that Microsoft launched last month will also be $50 off, along with other Xbox One S bundles. All these console discounts will be available at the Microsoft and participating retailers from June Friday, June 7 to June 17.
Microsoft has continued to launch cool-looking new Xbox Wireless controllers over the past couple months, and for a limited time you’ll be able to Save $10 on black, white, special edition and limited-edition Xbox Wireless Controllers. If you prefer to design your own Xbox Controller, be aware that Xbox Design Lab controller will also be available starting at $64.99.
As you can expect, the Greatest Xbox Deals of the Year will also offer lots of Xbox games at a discounted price. We don’t have the full list yet, but Microsoft mentioned up to 75% discounts on a list of games that will include recent titles such as such as Mortal Kombat 11, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. We’ll share more details about the Xbox game sale once Microsoft publishes the full list of discounted games.
