Fortnite Season 8 has already given us a variety epic skins so far, but there’s nothing like getting your hands on some exclusive content – and some players can soon do just that.
Samsung have announced that their newly revealed Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ and S10e Android devices will bring a brand new Fortnite cosmetic bundle with it.
The arrival of the new iKONIK skin and Scenario emote, which were both leaked on February 28, are inspired by Jung Chanwoo from Korean pop band iKON and will be made available on March 8.
Redeem your exclusive skin
In order to get your hands on the new iKONIK outfit and emote, you’re going to have to follow a few first steps.
- Head over to the Galaxy Apps store and find Fortnite on your Samsung Galaxy device.
- Click install and open the application once it has finished.
- Log in to Fortnite or create an account.
- Head over to the Store tab inside the app to claim your iKONIK cosmetic bundle.
- Type in your billing information after you have redeemed the package.
- Return to Fortnite Battle Royale and the iKONIK set should appear in your inventory.
If you would like to take a closer look at the skin and emote, Samsung has posted a teaser trailer to their official YouTube channel – as seen below.
Samsung will be hosting an event at New York City’s Meatpacking district on March 16 to celebrate the arrival of their new product line, their partnership with the K-Pop group and Fortnite – with popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins set to appear.
Ninja has already made a big announcement ahead of that event, though, teasing that their will be a brand new landscape on show.
“A brand new map, exclusive to Fortnite,” Ninja told his viewers. “That’s right, a brand new map, literally built for this event.”
This is the first time Epic Games will have explored the idea of creating a new map for Fortnite since the game was released in September, 2017. However, the likelihood is that the map will be a one-off for Samsung’s promotion.
Ninja will be hoping for a similar turnout to that of his New Year’s Eve Twitch event in Times Square, which turned out to be one of the most talked about broadcasts of 2018 – for both good and bad reasons.
Thousands of people stood outside in the rain that day and sensationally rejected his attempts to have them floss in the cold weather – during a stream that lasted from 4pm to 4am.
Samsung and Ninja will be hoping that this event not only tops his last in terms of publicity, but perhaps they’re crossing their fingers for good weather too.
