When are the Fortnite Valentines Day Skins Coming?

An update is coming to Fortnite this week and players can expect to find some new Valentines Day cosmetics amongst the changes.

This might not come as a surprise to fans of the battle royale, but Epic Games is adding brand-new themed skins and item bundles to the in-game store in the run-up to the Day of Love.

Valentines Day is on Sunday, February 14th, but that doesn't mean you'll have to wait that long to get your hands on the new cosmetics.
