FORTNITE Battle Royale players have got some brand new skins and cosmetics today following the release of a new update which has been datamined by Fortnite leakers.
Fortnite Skins Update
Fortnite fans and dataminers have discovered something extra special on top of the existing bounty of leaked skins from this morning.
The new files uploaded to the game also contained several new styles for pre-existing skins in the game.
“In the v8.00 files, the Waypoint skin had another style option added without the mask, but it wasn’t unlocked for players yet,” explained Fortnite Insider.
“However, in the v8.01 update, the unmasked Waypoint style was available to those who had the skin in their locker.”
“Since the Waypoint was given an unmasked style, players were asking for the Elite Agent to receive the same treatment with a new style, and it looks like Epic have obliged.”
At the time of writing dataminers have located and leaked new selectable styles for the OG Renegade Raider, Overtaker, and Whiteout skins which can be seen above and below.
It’s not entirely clear when these new selectable styles will be made available and unlocked by Epic Games, but what we do know is that they’ll be free.
Stay tuned for more details.
Original Story – Epic Games servers are down this morning with Fortnite offline and matchmaking temporarily disabled. As such, there will be login issues for anyone attempting to play.
This is so Epic Games can release the new Fortnite update having already published the new Fortnite 8.10 patch notes for the game this morning.
For those wondering, this is for all game modes – Battle Royale, Save the World and creative – and all available platforms, including PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and iOS Mobile devices.
As mentioned, those official Fortnite 8.10 patch notes have arrived for the new update and there’s new vehicles, gameplay features and more. But as with every update, there’s also a number of secrets hidden inside the game’s code and new files.
And like before, the update has been determined by users who have revealed a number of new skins and items on their way to the game shop.
There are new upcoming cosmetics, including new skins, pickaxes, gliders, back bling and emotes.
We should start to see these skins revealed and sold in the item shop potentially as early as today.
But as with all things, it’s unclear precisely, 100% when these new items could go live in the game.
Some skins famously never release, some are held back for another season entirely.
But assuming these skins are for this season, it’s likely we’re going to see them spread out over the next few days as items you can obtain from the Fortnite shop when it refreshes each morning at 12am GMT.
Take a look at the new cosmetics above and below

In the meantime stay tuned for more info on these new leaked skins the second we get it, including their rarities, price and descriptions.
