A new starter pack is available in Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One and PC, bringing the previously leaked ‘Laguna’ skin and other cosmetic items, all for a set price – plus some bonus V-Bucks.

The starter pack was already available in some countries as of March 18, and is expected to be rolled out across all platforms on March 19. 

The contents of the starter pack were previously leaked, discovered in the game files following the v8.10 update, and the leaks have turned out to be accurate.

The main attraction of the starter pack is the exclusive Laguna skin.

In-keeping with the somewhat tropical theme of Season 8, the starter pack will include two pineapple inspired cosmetics, a back-bling and a wrap.

The ‘Pineapple’ wrap is pretty self-explanatory, and the back-bling is the ‘pineapple strummer’, a guitar with some fruity insignia. There’s also a bonus 600 V-Bucks in the pack.

Buy Laguna starter pack in Fortnite

If you want the new skin and cosmetics, they will set you back £3.99 (expected to be $4.99 when available on US digital stores).

To purchase the starter pack, you will need to head to the digital store of your platform, for example the PlayStation store if you are a PS4 player. There’s no rush on the purchase though, as the Laguna starter pack should remain available until the next pack is released, which will likely be a couple of months away.

Which platforms is it available on?

The starter pack was made available on PlayStation 4 and PC platforms on March 18, in some countries, and was expected to pop up in stores on March 19 – and that seem to have come to fruition. 

A report from Fortnite Intel suggests that the new Fortnite cosmetics are also now available on Xbox One platform as well – as of March 19. 

However, the pack is yet to appear in the online store for both mobile and Nintendo Switch players. We’ll provide more updates as and when they’re made available to us.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
