Epic has just released a free World Cup variant of the odd Fishskin skin for Fortnite Battle Royale. This is one of the stranger skins in the game, but is a nice win for players who want additional variants without having to shell out V-Bucks. Twitter users are already clamoring for Epic to return the Fishskin style to the Item Store, which they are likely to do before this weekend’s event.
Here is what Epic had to say about the release on their official news release:
This week, the conclusion to the biggest tournament ever kicks off! We started with 40 million competitors and after this weekend will crown our Duos and Solo champions. Landing in the store on Thursday, July 25 at 8 PM ET, will be exclusive Fortnite World Cup 2019 Outfits – World Warrior and World Cup style for Fishstick – and a wrap. The ‘Kiss the Cup’ emote will also be available beginning Friday, July 26 at 8 PM ET. These cosmetics will never be available again, so make sure to pick them up before they leave the store on Sunday, July 28 at 8 PM ET.
Note: If you own Fishstick, log-in starting Wednesday, July 24 at 9 AM ET and the World Cup style will automatically unlock. Make sure to log-in before the Item Shop turnover on Sunday, July 28 at 8 PM ET. This is a limited-time unlock!Epic
