HYPEX, a generally trustworthy Fortnite leaker, has revealed that Epic Games is working on a new line of Fortnite skins and cosmetics based on the upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Dune.
Two new character skins, a new loading screen, an emote, and more are among the skins and cosmetics available. HYPEX has unearthed photographs of the character skins for Chani and Paul Atreides, who will be played by Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet in the 2021 remake of the film, respectively.
Cosmetics such as Chani’s satchel, the FremKit, a Sand Walk emote, the Ornithopter, and a Stickworm loading screen have also been uncovered by the leaker. The Maker Hooks and Twinblades pickaxes are also available.
The images on Twitter also suggest that a Dune package and a Dune Gear Bundle will be available in the shop. There are costs involved as well, with both packages costing 4,600 V-Bucks each. There is, however, a catch. These are considered placeholder prices, so don’t expect the things to cost this much until they’re available.
There’s also no indication on a release date, but keep in mind that the film comes out on October 22. It’s very likely that the skins and cosmetics will be available at that time as well.
All we have to do now is wait for Epic’s formal confirmation. However, as previously said, HYPEX is a very dependable Fortnite leaker.
