Free Carbon Bundle available exclusively to PS4 Fortnite players
Fortnite developer Epic Games has released a free Fortnite skin for players to claim, but it’s available exclusively to PlayStation Plus members.
The Carbon Bundle pack can be claimed from the PlayStation store by any players with a paid subscription to Sony’s PlayStation 4 online service.
The Carbon Bundle includes two items, though unlike the starter bundles available for purchase it does not include any of Fortnite’s V-Bucks currency. PlayStation Plus members can receive the Carbon Commando skin and the matching Commando Back Bling. Both items can be worn in either Creative or Battle Royale modes.
The items were first revealed when dataminers uncovered references to the skin with the release of patch 8.10 earlier in March. At the time, it was unclear that the skin would be an exclusive for PlayStation Plus members.
It isn’t the first time exclusive Fortnite packs have been released via the PlayStation store, and isn’t likely to be the last. Previous PS4 exclusives have included the Blue Striker Outfit, the Blue Team Leader skin, and the Prodigy skin. Each of these skins also arrived as part of a bundle, with matching back bling items and the occasional additional item such as an avatar or glider.
To claim the free pack, PS4 players can log into the PlayStation Store and search for the game Fortnite. Once found, they can visit the additional items menu and make the purchase from there. Though the item is free, Sony will send out an email thanking players and confirming the purchase. The items can also be obtained from the PlayStation Plus menu within the PlayStation Store.
The skin was first released in the Austratian PlayStation Store on March 26, and wasn’t initially available anywhere else. In the following days the skin has become available to players in the United States and the United Kingdom.
