Epic Games revived the mix of default skins from Fortnite’s early days in the Origins Set on Wednesday, and some fans are upset at the price point for the set.
The Origins Set includes the eight skins, one glider and one pickaxe that players received at random in each round of Fortnite before the game became consumed by cosmetics. It runs players 2,000 V-Bucks, with individual skins from the bundle going for 800 V-Bucks. The original glider is also available for 500 V-Bucks, while the original pickaxe — renamed the Throwback Axe — can be grabbed for free.
Players took issue with the skins’ being free for so long and then removed from the game, only to return at a high price to prey on the player base’s nostalgia.
Epic Games has not responded to player complaints about the pricing of the skins.
