New Xbox One and Nintendo Switch Fortnite bundles are on sale now

Two new Xbox One and Nintendo Switch console bundles pack in the V-Bucks, just in time for the start of Fortnite Season 6.



Two new Xbox One and Nintendo Switch Fortnite console bundles are available, just in time for the start of Season 6.

If you’ve been thinking about picking up a Nintendo Switch or Xbox One S console, two new bundles are now available that pack in the gaming phenomenon of year, plus a bunch of freebies.

With Fortnite Battle Royale being a free-to-play game, each bundle has its own selection of in-game items and digital currency.


The Xbox One S comes with the Eon cosmetic set, 2000 V-Bucks, and trials for Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold. The Nintendo Switch includes the Double Helix item set, and a meagre 1000 V-Bucks. Still, a Fortnite Battle Pass is available in-game for 950 V-Bucks, so at least you’ll have some change.

A PlayStation 4 Fortnite Royal Bomber Pack bundle was released over the summer, and also remains available from some retailers. That bundle is all the more appealing now that Sony has changed its stance on cross-platform play.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
