The final Fortnite update for Season 1 of Chapter 2, v11.50, has gone live, and data miners have uncovered a batch of unreleased skins and cosmetics coming to the battle royale.

Season 2 is set to start on February 20, but before then there’s still time for a few more events in the first season – the longest ever so far.

With not long left in the season, there’s fewer new skins and cosmetics this time around, but it looks like a Valentine’s Day event is coming, judging by the look of these leaked items.

Before we get to the Valentine’s Day content though, there’s one skin that everyone’s been waiting for that has now been confirmed.

The new film Birds of Prey is releasing on February 7, and to celebrate, a Harley Quinn skin is on its way to Fortnite.

There are two styles for the skin too, the first her standard look, and another, even wackier outfit. This image of the new skin was leaked via HYPEX.

New Valentine’s Day skins

Then, one week after the release of Birds of Prey, it is, of course, Valentine’s Day. For the final week of Season 1, it looks like players will be getting loved up.

There are four new skins for this event in total, plus one extra style, and a host of other items including backblings and weapon wraps.

You can see all the leaked Valentine’s Day content coming to Fortnite here, thanks to leaker HYPEX.

We don’t know the exact release date for these items yet though. Presumably, the Harley Quinn skin will be available by February 7, to tie in with the launch of the movie. A leak claimed it will be available on February 6, at 7pm EST.

As for the rest of the skins and cosmetics, we’d expect these to be available just before Valentine’s Day itself, so perhaps not until February 12 or 13. Epic Games should give an exact release date closer to the time.

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).
