Microsoft and Epic Games have teamed up to release an exclusive Fortnite x Xbox One S bundle which will include a new Rogue Spider Knight skin.

Console and game collaborations are popular among fans of their beloved franchise; giving people the opportunity to get their hands on a physical, game-themed version of their favorite console. 

Microsoft and Epic Games have previously teamed up, when the Fortnite: Battle Royale Special Edition Xbox One S was released with the Dark Vertex cosmetic set and 2000 V-Bucks earlier this year.

Fast-forward a few months and another Xbox One S bundle is set to be released on September 24, and will ship with access to the Rogue Spider Knight bundle. 

According to leaks from @FNBRHQ, the character bundle will feature the skin set (a reskin of the web weaving warrior and the associated Spider Shield back bling), alongside 2000 V-Bucks (worth approximately $20 USD or £16 GBP).

Access to the V-Bucks will be granted by completing the associated Rogue Spider Knight challenges.

Although the Rogue Spider Knight bundle will ship exclusively with the Xbox One S on September 24, if history is anything to go by, the set will likely become available at some point in the future (and be offered at a cheaper rate) — just like the Dark Vertex bundle that was offered with the Special Edition Xbox One S. 

With the holiday season around the corner, the bundle may be perfect for those in the market for a new console.

However, the addition of a simple character variation (that will likely be available to purchase at a later date) and some in-game currency, may struggle to entice players to jump ship from rival consoles/platforms.
