Update: Epic has since confirmed that the track's introduction was a mistake, and announced on Twitter that it would be issuing the 200 V-Bucks refund to those who purchased the item from the store.

Original story: Epic Games has pulled an item from Fortnite's store that was for sale despite it being a reward on this season's battle pass.

The Wild Lobby Track, a music pack item from the newest Zero Crisis Finale event, is a level 70 reward in the Season 6 battle pass. Epic promised that it would never sell a battle pass item in its store, although it's run into some trouble previously with reskinned battle pass goodies.

Players noticed the hiccup over on reddit (thanks, Eurogamer), where u/gstaffEpic said that the item "shouldn't be there" and that Epic was "taking it out of the store." The Epic representative also said it was looking into a solution for those who had purchased the track, presumably in the form of a 200 V-Bucks refund which was the price of the item. 

A tweet previously showcasing the music track as a shop item was deleted from Fortnite's social channels before a statement was thrown up on the Fortnite Status Twitter account.

A bit of a faux-weeb, Mollie will argue why your JRPG waifu is the wrong choice despite having equally awful taste. When she's not lurking in forums for nuggets of news, she's probably still failing to full combo that one song in a rhythm game she's been playing for years.
