A special edition Xbox One S is on the way, a Fortnite-style version to appeal to Fortnite fans and we just got an early preview of it thanks to some leaked pictures.
WinFuture reports that Microsoft will release a purple edition of the Xbox One S in the coming weeks, they show a 1TB of storage in a new purple colour scheme called “Gradient Purple” with a matching, shiny purple Xbox One wireless controller.
According to WinFuture’s sources, included in the box will be a copy of the game, plus a new Fortnite skin: Dark Vertex – which is also purple, same as the console colour. You will also get 2,000 V-Bucks to spend in-game and a month of free subscriptions to Xbox Live Gold, EA Access and Xbox Game Pass as part of the overall bundle.
It’s rumoured to debut at retail of $299 in the US and €299.90 (about £265) in Europe with 1TB of storage. Unlike the recently launched Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, the Fortnite Xbox will come with a Blu-ray disc drive for loading up games.
Microsoft is planning to hold its annual E3 press conference on Sunday June 9th at 1PM PT / 4PM ET. The company is promising to “go big” this year, and the special edition purple Xbox will likely be part of Microsoft’s E3 announcements.
