Honor have announced yet another Fortnite Battle Royale collaboration with Epic Games, as a brand new skin has been revealed and will soon be made available for their customers.
The new cosmetic is expected to be made available to buyers of the brand new Honor 20 or Honor 20 Pro mobile phones at some stage, with the flagship handheld devices being launched on May 21.
What could be the next addition to some players’ Fortnite Battle Royale skin collection was revealed to the public during the launch event of the smartphones in London. This move means that there will soon be two Honor exclusive skins in the popular battle royale game, with the HONOR Guard Fortnite Outfit already in the game.
While the press conference was light on information, where the new skin is concerned, fans can expect to see a release date announced shortly.
The skin, or outfit, will be called the HONOR Wonder Outfit and will feature a metallic purple costume and the character has bright blue hair, very different to many other offerings in the Fortnite Item Shop.
“With the release of the HONOR 20 Phone, there will be another exclusive skin that will come to all users that own the phone,” @FNBRLeaks posted to Twitter on May 21. “Here’s the first look of it from the HONOR Livestream.”
Honor will be hoping that their exclusive skin is added to the game in a smoother fashion to that of Samsung’s in March, where they made the iKONIK skin available for buyers of the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ or S10e devices.
Their launch of the iKONIK pack was plagued with issues as Epic Games accidentally made it available for all players to pick up from the Item Shop, meaning that it wasn’t as exclusive as customers had been led to believe.
This news shows that previous mistakes don’t seem to have had any significant impact on future relations with other major players in the mobile industry, and fans will be looking forward to some more details from announcements in the future.
We will continue to update this article as and when more information is made available to us.
