It looks like the first revealed cosmetic item for this year’s Valentine’s Day collection in Fortnite Battle Royale will be a Dark version of the Love Ranger outfit skin. 

Data miners have dug up and leaked new information found in game files that point to the Dark Love Ranger coming to Fortnite on February 14.

The leaks show that the skin has been labeled as ‘CupidDark’ in the files and put in the same ‘Styles’ folder as the Skull Trooper and Tomatohead skins. 

This likely means that the Dark version of the skin will not be its own item but rather a cosmetic style, or variant, for the Love Ranger, much like the Purple Skull Trooper and Regal Tomatohead variants. 

As for how players will be able to acquire this Dark cosmetic variant, the leaks indicate that it’ll be available via in-game challenges.

The exact number of challenges and what they will actually require is not yet clear, although some leaks point to there being up to four daily challenges that players will have to complete for the skin. 

In addition to the Dark cosmetic variant, it looks as though players will also receive a banned for completing all of the challenges, which data miners have found labeled as ‘CompletionCupidDark’ in the game files.

Unfortunately, the files currently have a placeholder image in place of the actual banner, so what the banner will look like remains unknown at this point.

Similarly, there is no actual image yet for the Dark Love Ranger, so fans have created a concept image of what it could look like in-game. 

The concept features the Love Ranger with a much darker skin texture and glowing purple light emanating from his eyes the carved markings on his body.

Of course, none of this information has been confirmed or announced so it should be treated as speculation until we got more concrete info about Epic Games’ plans for Valentine’s Day in Fortnite.

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).
