Even though the new season of Fortnite has only just begun, you best believe that we have a brand new Starter Pack available for purchase, this time by the name of The Iris Pack.
Previously thought to be a Samsung exclusive skin, Iris is instead available to all players for a lower than usual price alongside some V-Bucks. If you live in New Zealand, you can pick her up right now from the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store; nothing yet on the Nintendo eShop. She will be rolled out worldwide when the clock strikes midnight wherever you are with the release being February 25th everywhere.
Costing £3.99/€4.99/$4.99 USD USD in terms of price, here’s what The Iris Pack looks like on the New Zealand PlayStation Store.
As well as a closer look at everything within the Starter Pack.
And everything that you get within the pack:
– 600 V-Bucks – Iris Outfit (includes additional style) – Roundabout Back Bling – Pop Axe Pickaxe
Iris is the latest in a long line of Starter Packs in Fortnite, the previous one being Wavebreaker, an another female skin that was available for the majority of Season 1 of Chapter 2. You also get a Back Bling and a Pickaxe with Iris, making it an even more affordable pickup. Really, the V-Bucks on their own are a really good saving.
Starter Packs regularly provide good value for money, it giving you a usually good skin for cheaper than what you would in the Item Shop, as well as some V-Bucks for you to put towards other purchases. The skin this time out is not bad at all, though it doesn’t exactly stray far from the “slender female with colourful hair” archetype that so many of Fortnite’s skins consist of now.
UPDATE: Iris is now available worldwide across all platforms.
Fortnite: Chapter 2 – Season 2 is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. It recently launched into its second season of Chapter 2, which introduced a secret agent theme and a fair few changes to the map.
