Epic Games have gained a substantial amount of recognition and notoriety for their commitment to keeping Fortnite: Battle Royale as ‘fresh’ as possible.

When it comes to updates and patches, Epic Games have been regarded as the ‘Gold Standard’ by gaming community members for their constant upkeep of the wildly popular Fortnite: Battle Royale.

The game has reached new heights in recent months since its release in 2017, especially the ‘free-to-play’ Battle Royale portion of Fortnite, which has effectively broken into mainstream media and culture.

However, even though Fortnite: Battle Royale can be accessed for free by anyone with a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, or iOS device, the game has generated a massive amount of income via in-game purchases of content such as outfits, emotes, and more.

With such an immense amount of work needed to maintain a weekly update and content schedule, Epic Games employees work around the clock to ensure fans and community members are given the best gaming experience possible from multiple offices around the world.

Their main headquarters are located in Cary, North Carolina, which includes a variety of awesome features such as a slide, rock climbing wall, giant characters, and more.

“Lachlan is the third creator to join the Icon Series from among the Fortnite community, following streamers Ninja and Loserfruit.” they announced, before confirming the next creator to be added, “Entering the Icon Series next will be Spanish creator TheGrefg.”

Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive with a new tournament that players can compete in, to unlock the skin for free. The YouTuber will also be competing in the event and giving fans the first look at the bundle, which includes an outfit, back bling, emote, and a pickaxe.

As of now, little has been shared about the upcoming tournament but Epic has revealed it to be “one-of-a-kind” with more information to follow before the event.

“Been dreaming of this day ever since I fell in love with the game back in 2017,” Lachlan reacted, revealing his excitement for the upcoming skin release, “official reveal of the skin coming soon.”
