Along with the v8.30 update today, some players received a free new skin from Epic Games upon logging in. This skin was awarded as a bonus to users who have participated in the GeForce Fortnite Bundle promotion. With this promotion, Nvidia is offering 2,000 V-Bucks and the Male Counterattack skin set to anyone who purchases a select GeForce GTX graphics card. This set includes a pickaxe, glider, back-bling, and the outfit itself.
In order to qualify, you must buy one of the following graphics cards: GTX 1070 TI, 1070, 1060, 1050 TI, or 1050. Participating countries include the United Kingdom, South Africa, Portugal, Greece, Israel, Hungary, Malta, and Bulgaria.
The code for this key must be redeemed through the Nvidia Redemption Portal on a PC that has the graphics card installed. Of course, each person is limited to just one code and there is a minimum age requirement of 12 years old. Taking each item’s cost into consideration, along with the 2,000 V-Bucks, this original promotion is valued at $50.
While owners originally thought they were only receiving one skin, Epic decided to further add to the promo. Once qualifying participants log into Fortnite, they’ll receive an extra new skin variant.
In the Counterattack skin set, the “Reflex” outfit is tinted with different shades of green. This makes sense, as GeForce’s dominant color is green. However, the new variant of the skin, named “Stealth Reflex,” features black and red. Along with the outfit comes a back-bling, pickaxe, and glider, all with the same color scheme.
The folks over at Epic Games and Nvidia clearly thought that one skin pack wasn’t enough. This new Counterattack skin set is valued at $30, bumping up the overall worth of the promotion to $80.
While purchasing a GeForce graphics card is pricey, there’s no arguing the worth of this promotion. With a total of eight new items and 2,000 V-Bucks, it’s a must-have for any Fortnite skin collector or die-hard fan.
This is only a limited-time promotion, so if you’re planning on upgrading your GPU, the time to do it is now.
