New Skins

As is the case pretty much every week, we expect there to be new skins released throughout the week.

The Fortnite X Rocket League Lama Rama event has begun, so you'll be able to get skins for the battle royale from Epic's other hit game, but more should come to the store.

Maybe even some more styles for someone like Lara Croft, who's been the star of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 so far.
