Fortnite Battle Royale available physically for first time with Deep Freeze Bundle

You can now get your hands on a physical version of Fortnite Battle Royale, by picking up the new ‘Deep Freeze’ bundle, available at physical retailers, as well as a digital version available on all platform stores.

You can pick up a physical copy for PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, which comes with four exclusive cosmetic items and some bonus V-Bucks.

Fortnite was released physically before the battle royale mode existed, when it was only PvE, and copies of that original version sell on eBay for over $400.

This new physical bundle will set you back $29.99 (£24.99) from retailers or the in-game Fortnite store, and with a V-Buck bonus of 1,000 ($10), the three cosmetic items are being valued at around $20.

They are seasonal cosmetics of course as we head into the winter months, and as you could probably guess given the name ‘Deep Freeze’, they are all an icy blue.

While this bundle does have a decent price tag associated, when compared to some single skins which will cost around $20, it’s not a bad deal, relatively speaking, especially when it is exclusive to the bundle.

Deep Freeze Bundle

  • 1000 V-Bucks
  • Legendary Frostbite Outfit
  • Legendary Freezing Point Back Bling
  • Uncommon Chill-Axe Pickaxe
  • Uncommon Cold Front Glider

Jump in to Fortnite Battle Royale with the Deep Freeze bundle. Guaranteed to keep you warm on the battlefield, despite its chilly name!

Frostbite – “Brave the cold.”
Freezing Point – “Ice cold.”
Chill-Axe – “Keep it chill.”
Cold Front – “Cool to the touch.”

The Bundle is available now, and although they are often rotated in the in-game store, this is the first time it is available physically, so Fortnite collectors will certainly be interested in that version.

The skin itself also potentially hints at more wintery themed additions coming soon to battle royale, adding to speculation of a winter map makeover, sparked by another skin – the A.I.M.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
