On the Sunday before the Fortnite 10.40 update on September 22, leakers and dataminers uncovered numerous cosmetics from the upcoming update and gave us a look at them.

Usually, we don’t get a glimpse at the new cosmetics until a patch is released but things are different this time around as the v10.40 cosmetics have become available days before the update.

There are numerous back blings, pickaxes, and skins to dig through here so let’s just dive right in and take a look.

Epic GamesNew cosmetics were revealed from the upcoming v10.40 update.

These new cosmetics, found by ShiinaBR, MaxWineBach, and FunGameLeaks, seem to take popular skins like and Cuddle Team Leader and give them a new twist.

Outside of the skins, we have several pickaxes and back blings, not to the mention the leaked load screens that show the skins in action.

There are a couple of gliders and a music pack also coming, so it looks like there’s a lot to look forward to coming up if you’re in need of some new gear from the item shop.

Unfortunately, the leaks don’t give us a good idea of what to expect with the next update in terms of direction or map changes, so we’ll have to wait for the actual update for that.

It’s possible we could be looking at even more cosmetics once the update actually releases but this is what we’re looking at for right now.

We don’t know any exact day for the update but if Epic Games keeps with the release schedule they’ve been using lately, it’d be a Thursday update.

Through most of the Season 10, the updates came out a Tuesday but with two straight Thursday updates, it’s seeming like that’ll be the case moving forward.

Be on the lookout for more cosmetics and information to come out of eventual datamines of v10.40.

The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss what these new teasers might mean for the February Fortnite Crew release.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak

Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
