The unstoppable free-to-play game “Fortnite” has added a little NFL flare to the game. Players can now hunt each other down in their favorite NFL team’s uniforms, adding a touch of real life to the usually other worldly experience.
In a video posted on social-media today, Epic Games told fans, “We’re excited to announce that Fortnite and the NFL are teaming up for the ultimate football face-off. Starting November 9 at 7PM ET you’ll be able to purchase NFL themed Outfits from the Fortnite Item Shop.”
The game is the centerpiece for several popular bundles that will ship to eager holiday shoppers this year. Here on Amazon you can find the “The Nintendo Switch: Fortnite – Double Helix Bundle” which is selling for $299 and will includes a Nintendo Switch system, 1,000 V-bucks (in-game Fortnite currency) and the Double Helix Set, consisting of a unique Character Outfit, Back Bling, Glider and Pickaxe.
Not to be outdone is the “Fortnite Xbox One S” bundle, which comes with 2,000 V-Bucks and exclusive cosmetics. With the bundle you get a legendary item called Eon, a very specific Xbox exclusive, and right now the only way to get it is buying this bundle. Buyers will also get a pickax cosmetic and a fancy new glider. This all costs $299, which is the regular price for the Xbox One S, so all of these goodies are actually free to buyers.
There’s also the best selling “Fortnite: Deep Freeze Bundle” which is available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and the Xbox One starting on November 13th with an MSRP of $29.99. Players can also purchase and download the Fortnite: Deep Freeze Bundle digitally through the in-game store and first-party digital marketplaces. If you want to pre-order and have it ready for launch day, you can find pre-order info and gifting options right here on Amazon.
