Microsoft have jumped on the Epic Games bandwagon, offering a brand new Xbox Series S bundle that features both Rocket League and Fortnite. It's a neat idea, with both games having a reasonable cross-over audience, and Microsoft needing to boost Xbox Series S sales significantly. Let's be real: there's no need for a Series S, and the system is struggling because of it.

All this being said, though, Fortnite and Rocket League do both run very nicely on the Xbox One S, featuring insanely fast load times and a delicious 120FPS. With the return of the Cube in Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 8: Cubed, and with the brand new intergalactic theme of Rocket League Season 5, there has never been a better time to jump into either of these titles. So, what's included in the bundle? These games are both free-to-play, so they must be offering something... right?
