The Xbox controller on offer is pretty simple and does not look different from a standard controller in terms of design or patterns. However, the bundle seems interesting. In Season 8, we have seen Epic collaborated with prominent clothing brand Balenciaga to bring in-game cosmetics and skins for players. There were even real-life Fortnite inspired clothing launched by Balenciaga to celebrate the collab.
