Previously leaked, the cobalt pack is now available in some eastern countries.  

Featuring the Epic Cobalt skin, the Epic Reinforced Backpack, and 600 V-Bucks, the pack goes on sale when your time zone hits midnight.

The design of the outfit was found through the data files when the v7.20 update hit.

Included in that data leak were the words “blue mystery” which could hit to their being more to this skin and back bling than meets the eye.

This starter pack will be replacing the Summit Striker pack at Midnight.

Each starter pack costs the equivalent of the amount of V-Bucks would normally cost.

They are a way to incentivize people to spend money on V-Bucks by throwing in a skin Epic doesn’t think will do well in the Item Shop by itself.

Still, it is nice to be able to receive some interesting skins at a premium price and they are unlikely to make any of the most coveted skins parts of a pack any time soon.

Do you like being able to get a skin with your V-Bucks? Let us know why or why not in the comments below:
