It looks like the Samsung Galaxy skin will now have some competition as the most exclusive Fortnite skin after the announcement of a brand-new exclusive HONOR Guard skin.

Fortnite is no stranger to exclusive skins through various partnerships, with the Samsung Galaxy and PlayStation exclusive skins being some of the most notable examples, meaning it’s no surprise to see yet another one announced. 

Through an exclusive partnership with Honor UK, owners of the new HONOR View20 phone will be able to pick up a new Fortnite skin and it looks incredible. 

The skin is being released in conjunction with the View20 being the first Android ever to run at 60 FPS. 

The new HONOR Guard skin will be exclusive to Honor View20 owners.

The ability of the phone to run the game at such a high framerate is especially notable given that this feature was only given to iPhones back in December 2018

In addition to the new skin itself, Honor UK shared some stats on the new phone to let players know just what they would be in for with this new phone. 

The View20 will allow players to enjoy Fortnite to the fullest without being held back by low frame rates.

Boasting an average FPS of 59.13 and a low frame rate percentage of just 0.2%, it seems as though playing with the new View20 won’t hinder mobile players to levels seen in the past. 

There’s no word on whether the skins will be available immediately upon release of the phone or if they will come in the days and weeks following, much like the exclusive Samsung Galaxy skins. 

The phone will be available to purchase in the UK on January 23.

Popular YouTuber Lachlan Power is the next Fortnite star to be added to the game, and Epic Games have now confirmed just when the upcoming Icon Series skin will be available. Here’s what you need to know.

Since Fortnite first exploded in popularity in 2017, there have been a few streamers and YouTubers who have become known for creating content around the game and bringing the battle royale title to the next level.

Epic previously announced that they would be rewarding some of these stars with their very own in-game skins bundles, and among the few confirmed was Australian YouTuber Lachlan Power.

When will Lachlan’s Icon Series skin be released?

With the likes of Ninja and fellow Aussie Loserfruit being first to receive skins in the Icon Series, Lachlan is now next in line to receive these new cosmetics.

In their latest blog post, Epic Games confirmed that Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive in the Fortnite item shop on November 12 at 4PM PT/ 7PM ET/ 11PM GMT/ 9AM AEST.

“Lachlan is the third creator to join the Icon Series from among the Fortnite community, following streamers Ninja and Loserfruit.” they announced, before confirming the next creator to be added, “Entering the Icon Series next will be Spanish creator TheGrefg.”

Lachlan’s Icon Series set will arrive with a new tournament that players can compete in, to unlock the skin for free. The YouTuber will also be competing in the event and giving fans the first look at the bundle, which includes an outfit, back bling, emote, and a pickaxe.

As of now, little has been shared about the upcoming tournament but Epic has revealed it to be “one-of-a-kind” with more information to follow before the event.

“Been dreaming of this day ever since I fell in love with the game back in 2017,” Lachlan reacted, revealing his excitement for the upcoming skin release, “official reveal of the skin coming soon.”

The official reveal of this skin is currently expected to be shared on November 1, and the next Fortnite star for the icon series will be Spanish star TheGrefg, although it is unclear just when he will receive a skin bundle.
