There is the imaginatively titled LeBron James Outfit. According to Epic Games, it “blends the best of LeBron’s on-court and pre-game persona”. It also comes alongside The Lion Pickaxe, a Wingspan Glider and his signature on-court celebration, The Silencer.
If Players complete special King’s Bling quests, these items will grow increasingly more gold. There will also be a slider available to customise just how much bling they want to show off.
You can also get James in his Space Jam: A New Legacy outfit. The outfit also includes LeBron’s Taco Tuesday style variant, made famous from all those Instagram stories.
LeBron’s inclusion has been teased for a while now. First unofficially through a handful of leaks and last weekend, a mural was spotted in Chicago. It was then followed up by an in-game painting at Believers Beach.
All of LeBron’s outfits will be available in the shop from 1am, July 15 (8pm ET, July 14).
Marvel’s Loki has also recently become a playable skin through the game’s July Crew Pack.
“Being the first UK act to ever perform in Fortnite Creative, and for that performance to take place inside a venue as iconic as The O2, is truly humbling,” said Easy Life frontman Murray Matravers. “We’re all huge gamers in the band so getting the chance to appear in a game this popular is a childhood dream come true.”
