It seems that everyone is in the business of leaking Fortnite updates, including the company behind the game itself as a new skin was accidentally introduced on its social media account.
Fortnite has been getting constant additions to its game for the holiday season in the form of new modes, add-ons, skins and leakers have been hard at work at exposing them before their official release, well Epic Games probably didn’t expect themselves to be one of those leakers.
In a since deleted post, Fortnite’s official Instagram account published a photo of a trendy-looking winter elf that cannot be located within the game’s item shop, leading many to believe a mistake had been made behind-the-scenes.
The single shot featured a blue-skinned female elf with orange bangs decked from head to toe in cozy winter garb.
The character is sporting a pink and pale blue Christmas-esque sweater dress, with playful fluff-balls hanging from its snow white beanie.
The Fortnite developers decided that no elf is complete without a contemporary pair of glasses, as the new skin design dons an almost-squared framed pair of eye gear.
Most notable is the snowflake on the model’s back that rounds out the design. As with a lot of thematic releases, a matching glider will likely be available alongside the new skin.
There’s no word on when we’ll see this in-game, but it’s likely that it could be coming out as soon as the next update on December 29 just in time for the New Year.
