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.

Custom Battle Pass Skins For Season 7

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?
