A new cosmetic pack is available in Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One and PC, bringing the previously leaked Lava Legends items together at a set price.

There have been a host of changes to the Fortnite map in Season 8, most prominently the huge volcano that replaced Wailing Woods with lava pools and volcano vents also appearing on the landscape.

In the most recent update, v8.20, a new skin pack – similar to the Frozen Legends bundle – was leaked containing items with a volcano theme; the ‘Lava Legends’ bundle is now available to purchase in-game.

EPIC GAMESThe bundle contains three legendary items that would cost 6,000 v-Bucks to purchase individually.

The set contains two legendary skins – the Molten Battle Hound and Molten Valkyrie outfit. As well as the skins, players will also receive the legendary glider – Lavawing.

A lava wrap included in the leak does not form part of the pack but can be purchased from the item shop for 700 v-Bucks.

How to buy Lava Legends bundle in Fortnite

The bundle will set you back £15.99 (around $20 in the US digital stores).

To purchase the new skin pack, you will need to enter the digital store of your platform and browse for Fortnite. Found in the add ons section of your respective store, where you would normally purchase v-Bucks, there will be an option to buy the Lava Legends bundle.

Alternatively, you can purchase the bundle through your in-game client by scrolling the store tab and selecting the new bundle.

EPIC GAMESThe bundle was released alongside the Floor Is Lava limited time mode.

If you do not see the pack in store, it’s possible that it’s not yet available in your region. Epic have confirmed that it will be available worldwide by Monday, April 1.

Which platforms is Lava Legends pack available on?

The Lava Legends bundle is available on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.

A host of other skins were also leaked in the v8.20 update that are yet to hit the item shop.

Information on the PS4 store suggests that the lava legends bundle will be available for purchase until April 16.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
