Epic Games accidentally showed off a new skin in the Fortnite Creative mode, revealing that a new spin on an old favorite will be arriving in the foreseeable future.

Leaked skins are quite common to see in Fortnite, but it’s not too often that Epic Games themselves will leak it. Fortnite leaker HYPEX shared the loading screen, which was first discovered by Guille_GAG and PlatBuilds. 

Many players might have actually gotten a glimpse of this skin, but not actually realized it’s actually a new one. Eagle-eyed fans might notice that this is actually a male version of the Sgt. Green Clover skin.

A quick glance at the leaked image shows a leprechaun looking character complete with a red beard. If it’s not an actual variant, it’s the closest to one as we’re going to get.

The Sgt. Green Clover skin first appeared as part of St. Patrick’s Day in 2018, making it one of the first skins to appear in Fortnite.

Of course, the game was popular then, but considering how much it has continued to grow, this skin began to become known as one of the “OG” skins that players like to brag about. 

It has only appeared in the Item Shop a total of five times, with the last appearance being St. Patrick’s Day 2019, making it one of the rarer skins in the game.

The developers have certainly shown a willingness to bring rare skins back as they have famously done so with the Red Knight, Skull Trooper, and most recently, the Ghoul Trooper.

Since this is a St. Patrick’s skin, it seems a bit curious that it was revealed so soon as we’re still a little over four months out from a release, if that’s what the devs have in store.

Female and male variants of popular skins have become quite common in Fortnite, and it gives players a chance to choose between two different options.

For the time being, the male version of this popular and rare skin will still be a ways out, so don’t get your hopes up for a release until near March at earliest.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
