Fortnite's Dark Vanguard Skin and Glider Are Now Live

Fortnite's Dark Vanguard Skin and Glider Are Now Live

"Get dressed, loser, we're going to space."

There's a new skin for Fortnite Battle Royale: The ominous-looking Dark Vanguard skin. It's a space suit, which fits in well with Fortnite's chosen space theme for Season 3. It also looks cool, though I wouldn't advise putting it to an acid test in the vacuum of space (or to a literal acid test on the scalding surface of Venus).

The Dark Vanguard skin, which costs 2000 V-Bucks, arrived in Fortnite's online store around the same time the Raven skin fluttered away. The intimidatingly handsome Raven skin drew a great deal of attention before and after its launch, as did the Feathered Flyer Glider it was coupled with. The Feathered Flyer Glider is gone, too. In its place is the Deep Space Lander (1200 V-bucks), which can't even orbit the Earth once, but will set you down nice and gentle after a long fall.

"Did you know you can go to the bathroom in these things? Watch."

Meanwhile, a meteor is still threatening to fall on Tilted Towers, and it may or may not make its final approach on April 18. Get ready for the maybe-Apocalypse by reading our tips and guides for Fortnite. Our guide to Fortnite's Week 8 Challenges is also live.
