Epic Games is releasing the new Fortnite Breakpoint skin and challenge pack on Xbox One, PC and PS4, and if you want to know how to get them – we’ve got you covered.

As Season 9 of Fortnite Battle Royale inches closer to its end, Epic Games continue to release awesome content that represents the season’s futuristic themes. 

On July 18th, the company is releasing the latest skin Breakpoint, as well as a challenge pack. While it isn’t out until tomorrow, it has released early in New Zealand so we have all the details.

What’s in the Breakpoint challenge pack?

The set includes the Breakpoint skin, the Signal Jammer, and six daily challenges that can net you 1,000 V-Bucks.

The new skin has a futuristic hologram look to it, with the eyes, arms, and feet glowing blue. There is also an amazing effect where glowing blue digital particles run up the character’s leg.

The backpack bling also sports the digital looking skull that is seen on the vest.

How do I get the Breakpoint skin?

To buy the new skin and challenge pack, check the Fortnite PC launcher, PlayStation Store if you are on PS4, or the Xbox Store on July 18th. 

The pack could cost around $9.99 in the US, but could cost less according to infamous dataminer KrispyLeaks. The price isn’t set in stone though and is just a rumor so you’ll have to wait for official confirmation to really see how much money it will be. 

The set is a good deal as the skin looks great, and it comes with challenges to net you $1,000 V-Bucks you can use for future cosmetics. 

We imagine a lot of players will be eager to get this skin, because it goes well with the season’s current future-driven themes.

What a great way to round out the season as it approaches its final two weeks. We’ll of course update you on the real price when the skin and challenge pack releases.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
