The previously leaked Summit Striker Starter Pack now has an official release time and date as well as a cost in V-Bucks.

With the Playstation Store having already updated for users in New Zealand, players are already able to view the new Summit Striker Starter Pack in the PS Store.

According to a screenshot, the pack’s price will remain consistent with previous ones, as its cost is $7.95 in New Zealand dollars, which is equivalent to $4.99 USD and £3.99 GBP. 

Furthermore, this starter pack looks like it will be released on November 6, which is the same day the the v6.22 patch update in Fortnite is set to go live.

This suggests that this new cosmetic bundle will be coming as part of the update, and will be available once the downtime for the patch ends.

The Summit Striker Starter Pack is now also available in Europe and the UK, in addition to everywhere that has already reached midnight local time.

Although Epic Games have not confirmed that to be the official release date for this pack, they have confirmed that November 5 will be the last day to purchase the Ace Starter Pack, which is the one currently available in the Item Shop.

The Summit Striker Starter Pack was first leaked on November 3 after images and details of it were found by data miners in new game files.

The pack will contain the following items:

  • 600 V-Bucks
  • The Summit Striker Outfit – Battle Royale Only
  • Top Notch Back Bling – Battle Royale Only

When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
