The next Fortnite crossover features NBA superstar LeBron James, who’s skin will make an appearance in the game on July 14 ahead of his participation in the Space Jam sequel this weekend.
What is The Fortnite LeBron James Skin Gear Bundle?
Apart from the eponymous character, the LeBron James Skin Gear Bundle also includes the Lion pickaxe, the Wingspan glider, a Back Bling, Sunglasses and The Silencer, a unique celebration. There are three skins, each equipped with Nike LeBron 19, the player’s upcoming shoes. One of the alternative costumes is a throwback to a famous LeBron James game day appearance from 2018, one inspired by James’ appearance in Space Jam: A New Legacy. The last one, a Taco Tuesday skin, is the odd one of the bunch.
His default, casual outfit is accentuated with a floating crown, a reference to his nickname “King James”, with black crystal shards added in the shape of his iconic lion logo. There’s also a slider that augments the look with increasing flecks of gold if you prefer a shinier look.
The LeBron James Gear Bundle time of release
All the items will be released in the item shop on Wednesday, July 14, starting at 8 PM ET.
From streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins to musician Travis Scott, real-life celebrities have become an increasingly integral part of the Fortnite universe. Skins sporting the jerseys of NBA teams and professional soccer clubs, as well as players like Neymar, have recently gotten a lot of attention. The same source that revealed a Fortnite LeBron James skin also hinted at an upcoming The Rock skin for Fortnite, indicating that the arrival of celebrities isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
