Fortnite’s next big skin collaboration has been revealed, and it’s Los Angeles Lakers and Space Jam: A New Legacy star LeBron James. Here’s what we know about his release date, time, and unlock process based on the announcement blog and reputable leaks.
When is the Fortnite LeBron James skin release date and time?
Leaks previously suggested the LeBron James skin would arrive alongside update 17.20 later this week, but now we have a precise date. Lebron James will come to the Item Shop July 14, 2021 in two separate Outfits. Each one comes equipped with LeBron 19 sneakers.
Since these are Item Shop releases, we imagine they’ll go live at 8 p.m. Eastern July 14 when the store refreshes.
What does the Fortnite LeBron James skin look like?
The promotion features two different bundles. The first Outfit is the standard LeBron James James Outfit that features LeBron in optional gilded shoulder pads and a crown. You can also purchase a Tune Squad LeBron pack that features LeBron in his Space Jam: A New Legacy uniform, as well as a second Taco Tuesday variant and Pack Supreme Back Bling.
In case that’s not enough, there’s also a King James Gear Bundle that includes:
- The Lion Pickaxe
- Wingspan Glider
- Silencer emote
This gear even has a special slider that offers 20 different variations on the Outfit to make it as gold as you want. Those who desire both outfits and the gear can purchase the King James Bundle, too, and that includes all the above-listed items.
What does the Fortnite LeBron James skin cost?
Past Icon Series bundles have been sold for as much as 2,000 V-Bucks, with the Outfit as a standalone offering at 1,500 V-Bucks. This is typically the price for premium skin sets in Fortnite, so we wouldn’t expect LeBron James Outfit to get too much more expensive than that. Unfortunately, the official blog post doesn’t mention price.
