Spanish content creator and Team Heretics co-owner TheGrefg is next-in-line to receive a skin as a part of the Fortnite Icon Series, and we’ve got everything you need to know about it.

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, Epic Games have linked up with some pop culture icons. Star Wars, Batman, Marvel’s Avengers, Stranger Things, and The Walking Dead have all featured, just to name a few.

While fans have been clamoring to see more crossovers with TV, movies, and music stars, others have been wanting to see their favorite YouTubers, Twitch streamers, and even Instagram stars get a skin of their own.

Ninja, Loserfruit, and Lachlan have all been given their own cosmetic sets, and Spanish streamer TheGrefg is joining them next after months of waiting from his legion of fans. So, here’s what you need to know.

TheGrefg Fortnite skin release date

Just like with Ninja, Loserfruit, and Lachlan, TheGrefg’s skin will take inspiration from the Spanish streamer. Not just that, but so will his additional cosmetics – a pickaxe and an emote. 

As for when it’ll be released, that’s going to be on January 16, 2021. The Team Heretics co-owner revealed it all during his record-breaking Twitch stream where he clocked in at over 2.4 million viewers

The skin itself will be a shirtless warrior, so it’s different than Ninja looking like an actual ninja but ultimately it does look like TheGrefg.

TheGrefg Fortnite skin & bundle price

If you want to get the skin, it shouldn’t cost all that much to get either. Previous skins have cost 1,500 VBucks by themselves, with other cosmetics being available separately. 

Everything related to TheGrefg should be thrown in a bundle too, and will likely save you a few VBucks against buying them all separately. The Ninja bundle cost 2,000, Lachlan 2,200, and Loserfruit 1,800, so TheGrefg’s will be similar to those. 

Once the skin eventually releases, it won’t be around forever, however. There will be a limited-time in which you can buy it from the Item Shop, but this will be around four days. So, it should be out of the Item Shop after the January 20 update. 

Though, you will be able to get ahead of time – providing you win his Floor is Love tournament. So, be sure to check all the details for that here.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
