Fortnite Adds New World Cup Skins That Can Be Customized

Fortnite now has a special set of World Cup Skins, just in time for the World Cup 2018 in Russia.

With the World Cup 2018 now well underway in Russia yesterday, Fortnite is getting in on the party. Fortnite firstly added new Soccer Pitches into the Battle Royale map. Now, there's brand new World Cup skins available in the store.

The Soccer Pitches were firstly added onto the Battle Royale map to tie in with the crop of Week 7 Challenges that were released yesterday. There's no such challenges surrounding the new World Cup Skins however, and you can purchase them in the store right now for 1,200 V-Bucks each.

As you can see just below, there are eight total World Cup Skins now available in the Battle Royale store. They'll all set you back 1,200 V-Bucks, but you can customize both the number on the back of the shirt, and the nation that the shirt represents, as seen in the tweet from FortniteIntel above.

You'll also notice that there's the brand new 'Elite Cleat' harvesting tool in the store just above, another item to celebrate the World Cup kicking off over in Russia.

The Soccer Pitches and new skins aren't the only thing that's new about Fortnite, as the game arrived on the Nintendo Switch just a matter of days ago. Head over to out Fortnite Switch guide to find out all you need to know about getting your hands on the latest port.
