Gaming INTEL can confirm that when going onto the PlayStation Store in New Zealand the starter pack does appear.
If following the pattern of previous starter packs, its price certainly doesn’t come as much of a surprise to players. It will be available to purchase for $7.49 NZ Dollars, the equivalent to £3.99 GBP / $4.99 USD.
The pack will be available on Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop, Google Play, App Store, and on PC via Epic Games’ own store.
According to the PlayStation Store, the Fortnite Summit Striker Pack unsurprisingly arrives with its own outfit and back bling.
- 600 V-Bucks
- The Summit Striker Outfit – Battle Royale Only
- Top Notch Back Bling – Battle Royale Only
Earlier today, Epic Games announced that update v6.22 would be releasing on Tuesday, November 6th with server downtime beginning at 4am ET. As confirmed via the official PS Store, the ‘Summit Striker Pack’ will arrive with this update, most likely alongside other recently announced items.
Furthermore, players previously thought that Epic Games could potentially have something else lined up for update v6.22. In a rather small tweet, they seemed to be hinting towards something regarding Autumn.

Fans were quick to speculate on the situation, especially with the falling leaves emoji teasing many. Players assumed that the leaves within the game would be changing colour. However, Epic employee ‘MrPopoTFS’ responded on reddit with “Unfortunately, no. This post is just in the spirit of the season”, quickly debunking any theories.
The Summit Striker Pack will be replacing The Ace Pack, in which released on August 28th and included the following:
- 600 V-Bucks
- The Ace Outfit – Battle Royale Only
- Swag Bag Back Bling – Battle Royale Only
