Epic Games have addressed the issue regarding the Xbox One Fortnite Bundle after complaints of false advertisement.
Players that had purchased the Eon Xbox Fortnite Bundle were told be to be receiving the following:
- Eon Outfit/Skin
- Resonator Pickaxe
- Aurora Glider
- 2,000 V-Bucks
There was some controversy as to what players would actually receive as the packing for the bundle had the following information:
It clearly states on the package that players would be getting the full game and add-ons and that they would be receiving a download code for this. As the Battle Royale mode is free, players assumed that they would be receiving the Save the World mode for free, however this was not the case and was not intended.
There was a post on the XboxOne subreddit which gained a lot of traction from players that were complaining about the false advertisement. Epic Games have responded to the issues raised and have issued the following statement:
We agree that the messaging on the Xbox One S Fortnite Bundle was unclear and so will be granting free access to Save the World for those who purchased the bundle.
We are going to begin identifying players who have claimed the Eon Bundle and will be granting their accounts access to Save the World. We will also make sure that all future players who claim the Eon Bundle will be granted access to Save the World moving forward.
If you already had purchased Save the World and claimed the Eon Bundle, we will be granting you an additional 2,000 V-Bucks.
We hope to have an update shortly on the exact timing of entitlements.
This means that players who have purchased the Eon Bundle will be getting Save the World for free. Players that have the Eon Bundle and have also purchase the Save the World game mode will also be receiving an additional 2,000 V-Bucks.
UPDATE: Epic Games will be issuing Save the World for free with the v7.20 update to players who have purchased the bundle.
Players should now be getting their compensation and Save the World for free. It may take some time to be added to your account.
