Fortnite Goes Retail to Fend off Blackout from Its Battle Royale Throne

Activison’s Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, is now mere days away, and while many are waiting in anticipation to try out the title’s multiplayer component and the now globally famous zombies, there is no denying that the brand new, Blackout mode is the star of the show. As it does not just seek to carve out a niche for itself within the Battle Royale market, but it is fully determined to take it over. But as good as the beta might have been, and as good as the full release might be, there is simply no denying that Fortnite is going to be a tough nut to crack.

As things stand, Fortnite is the biggest single title of this generation – Grand Theft Auto V not included. And while Blackout, and the upcoming Red Dead Redemption II may serve as a beginning to its end, then Epic Games is not willing to go down, at least not quietly. In order to counter both Activision, and 2K Interactive, Epic game will soon release a retail version of its flagship Battle Royale experience, and in order to ensure its success, this particular version will also feature a number of goodies, which many will pay a top dollar to obtain.

The version in question is titled Deep Freeze Bundle, and it features the Battle Royale version of the title, a Frostbite outfit, Cold Front Glider, Freezing Point Back Bling, Chill-Axe Pickaxe, and last but certainly not least 1000 V-Bucks. It will land on 16th of November, just over a month after Black Ops IIII, and just in time for Christmas – so make of that what you will.

The Fortnite Deep Freeze Bundle, will see its release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, and it will cost you £24.99. However, some retailers have this title available at a discounted price already, but do not expect to buy it for less than £20, as we are expecting this edition of Fortnite to be in vogue, due to the cosmetics with which it comes.

And this is not because I'm another self-centered, pseudo-intellectual games journalist, but because there are many discussion worthy matters which go unnoticed in the flurry of other video-game related articles.
