Everything you need to know about Fortnite this week

Last week was a busy one, with Neymar Jr. joining the game, but Epic Games aren't slowing down with Fortnite this week either.

Here's everything you need to know about the latest Fortnite Title Update and all the new challenges and content.

LATEST - Knights Of The Food Court Revealed

A new set of original skins from Epic Games have been revealed ahead of their release via Fortnite's official Twitter account.

The Knights of the Food Court seem to showcase a medieval-inspired twist on the food-related skins that the game has seen over the last few years. This includes Tomato-Head and Durr Burger.

We don't know exactly but we're certain these skins will cost between 1,500 V-Bucks and 2,000 V-Bucks. As for the bundles, which will include Harvesting Tools and most likely a Glider of some kind, that's anyone's guess. We could see a new Loading Screen added, new Emotes, and even a Back Bling.

16.40 Update

Last week saw the release of the 16.30 update, which also brought Neymar Jr to the game.

Since the update was last week that means we will likely have to wait until next week to see the 16.40 update.

We could see a small update released to fix some issues or add a new weapon, but so far nothing has been confirmed by Epic Games.

Custom Battle Pass Skins

HYPEX has reported that a new class has been added to the game called "Battle Pass Custom Skin Page".

This sounds like where Maya from Chapter 2 Season 2 would be placed, as she was a character that we could customize by unlocking different elements throughout the season.

Could we be set to see more customizable skins in future seasons?
