In one of the biggest surprises of 'The End' event, The Foundation returned to Fortnite and was revealed to be played by The Rock! It looks like he'll be playing a huge role in Chapter 3 overall and it all starts in Season 1.
Once we finally calmed down from that revelation of who was playing him, it was time to ask the serious questions, when can we unlock The Foundation in-game? Luckily, we didn't have to wait too long to find that out! Here's how and when you can do it!
How to Unlock The Foundation in Fortnite Chapter 3
The Foundation will be the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 special skin release. This means that the outfit and all of his cosmetics are not available just yet, but will be part-way through the season. Currently, the release date is set for Thursday, 3 February.
Like other previous skins who are considered special releases, they are not unlocked using V-Bucks or Battle Pass stars. Instead, you must complete special challenges to unlock all of the content. These challenges will go live on the release date.
The other cosmetics that are known to be releasing with the skin are;
- Foundation's Fortune Emoticon
- Tru Foundation Spray
- Foundation's Mantle Back Bling
- Foundational Wrap (with animated graphics)
- Foundation's Plasma Spike Harvesting Tool
Will The Foundation have an Unmasked Skin?
Yes!, it appears that The Foundation will have an unmasked variant when he launches in February. This means you'll be able to see Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's face in all its glory. It's likely to be the hardest unlock within the cosmetics that are available.
The second page of cosmetics is currently hidden but this unmasked variant is likely going to be the top prize on offer. The quests to unlock these skins can sometimes be tricky but are often achievable with a little bit of hard work.
