Fortnite Raven Skin Releasing Today

Fortnite Raven Skin Releasing Today

Dress up like a big ol' bird and top off your look with the Feathered Flyer Glider.

Brace yourself: A large corvid is about to land in Fortnite Battle Royale. Tonight at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT, the dark and bold Raven skin is up for grabs.

Fortnite fans have had their feathers in a fluff over the Raven suit since dataminers dragged the handsome getup into the light not very long ago. It's a handsome piece of work that's accented with onyx feathers and topped off with a hood that turns your eyes into glowing puddles of violet light. It's the perfect get-up for stalking a battlefield with, if you ask me.

The announcement about the skin's arrival is on Fortnite's events page, but it's not yet clear how players can secure the Raven cloak. It seemingly has something to do with Epic's upcoming "Fear the Storm Nevermore" event.

Here's your invite to a bird party. RSVP.

What's a raven without its wings, though? Nothing, that's what. The Feathered Flyer Glider is also coming with the update, offering you the chance to fully complete your Angel of Death / battlefield carrion-eater ensemble.

The Raven skin isn't the only new arrival. Make sure you check out our guide to Fortnite's Week 7 challenges, and peruse our general tips, tricks, and guides for Fortnite Battle Royale.
