Next Gen Starter Pack

In the 15.20 update that went live today, a new cosmetic set was added titled the "Next Gen Starter Pack".

Each season we see a new Starter Pack added to the game, these usually cost $3.99/£3.19 and players get a skin, and a selection of cosmetics from a pickaxe, back bling, glider etc.

Players also receive 600 V-Bucks in the pack, making it incredible value for money.

In the past we have also seen console exclusive skins, mainly on the PS4, for players of those systems.

Owners of the PS5/Xbox Series X|S will be able to purchase the Next Gen Starter Pack, which will include the Ruby Shadows skin, Sky Shadow glider, and Shadow Slicer pickaxe.


Release Date

Right now there has been no official confirmation of its release by either Epic Games or leakers.

With it being added in the 15.20 update we can expect it to be released soon, possibly over the next few days.
