Unique cosmetic items are usually unlocked in a few key ways. Some can be claimed through the seasonal Battle Pass while others might have specific challenges tied to them. For this new bundle, however, grabbing every item is all too simple.
The entire Space Gear Bundle can be acquired through Fortnite’s in-game Item Shop for a limited time.
These unmistakable characters and items bring the look and feel of the 1979 classic into Epic’s popular battle royale. Players can drop into the map as the terrifying Xenomorph or hop into combat as the ruthless Ripley.
Epic confirmed in a blog post these items are available from Thursday, February 25 onwards. Outside of the two Alien skins, you’ll also be able to grab a number of additional goodies.
The Alien cosmetics set consists of the following items:
- Ellen Ripley Skin
- Xenomorph Skin
- Xenomorph Tail Back Bling
- Xeno Menace (Built-in Emote)
- Nostromo Crew Outfit
- Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier
- P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe
- Cheyenne Dropship Glider
- Burst Case Scenario Emote
While they’re available at the time of writing, Epic is yet to confirm when they’ll be disappearing from the in-game store.
