Fortnite’s v11.10 Update is now live, which means Epic Games have added a host of new cosmetic items to the game’s files which are coming to the popular battle royale title in the near future. 

With Halloween just days away, Epic Games have brought back it’s annual spooky event Fortnitemares, with the Chapter 2 map invaded by the same undead horde of zombies which caused chaos on the game’s original map.

With the v11.10 update coming as the first major update since Chapter 2 Season 1 began, Epic Games have finally added new skins to the game, with data miners sifting through the files to give us an early look before they’ve been added to the store.

Epic GamesFortnitemares returns in time for Halloween.

New skins, gliders, back blings, and more are added to the game in one massive patch, and hidden away in the game’s files so players can’t find them early. Thankfully, data miners do the hard work of foraging through the update to release them, so those obsessed with Fortnite cosmetics can see what they may be purchasing in the next few weeks.

As always, just because Epic Games have added the cosmetics to the game’s files, it doesn’t guarantee that they will all see the light of day, as the developers have been known to add items that never see the light of day.

Almost all of the skins added in the v11.10 Update will be made available for purchase in Fortnite’s in-game store using V-Bucks, although some may be used as part of the Fortnitemares event as special rewards for completing tasks and challenges.

Thanks to @FNBRLeaks for this week’s leaks.

Fortnite leak hints at Tomb Raider crossover with Lara Croft skin

Fortnite players are convinced that the game’s next major crossover skin will be Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider franchise.

When Season 5 of Epic Games’ popular battle royale launched in December 2020, it came with the theme of ‘bounty hunters’ as Agent Jonesy attempted to “gather the greatest hunters across all realities” to protect The Loop.

So far, we’ve seen hunters including God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and of course The Mandalorian make appearances in the game as playable skins.

Who’s next? Well, fans have been gathering clues – alongside a recent leak – and they think they’ve discovered that the next newcomer to The Island will be none other than Tomb Raider legend Lara Croft.

Is Lara Croft going to be in Fortnite?

According to Fortnite dataminer Mang0e, a new crossover skin codenamed ‘Typhoon’ will be arriving in the game soon. It will be a female character with reactive styles, and the portal on the map indicting her arrival has a ‘flicker’ effect.

While codenames like this one don’t always have a link to the final skin, some fans believe that ‘Typhoon’ is a reference to the opening of 2013 reboot Tomb Raider, where Lara gets stranded on an island after a violent storm sinks her ship.

As for being reactive, there could be a number of possibilities. One could be that as the player receives damage, the skin appears more bloody and bandaged up, which would reflect Lara’s modern appearance in the recent trilogy of games.

Lara Croft would fit the ‘hunter’ theme of Fortnite Season 5.

A recent tweet from the official Tomb Raider account has added even more fuel to the fire. Using symbols, the tweet depicts Lara thinking about three emojis. One of them is a pickaxe, which is a piece of Fortnite iconography.

Of course, Lara uses a pickaxe in her own game, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating. Lara would also fit the ‘hunter’ aspect of the season, as she uses her bow and arrow to hunt prey in the games.

The rumors have even got some dedicated fans creating their own artwork. Twitter user @wawa_cwoft mocked up what Lara Croft could look like as a Fortnite character, and it’s got us fully on board with the concept (as if we weren’t already).

But what if it’s not Lara Croft? Well, there’s been heavy speculation about Metroid’s intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran joining Fortnite as a crossover skin.

With Kratos representing PlayStation and Master Chief representing Xbox, Nintendo are the only company behind the ‘big three’ consoles who haven’t got a skin representing them yet. Samus could be perfect for the job.

Whoever the new crossover skin turns out to be, fans will be able to get their hands on them soon enough as Season 5 of Fortnite is scheduled to come to an end on March 16, 2021.
