LEAK: A new Nighthare set has been found in the game files

Published

on

The Item Shop will be getting a scary new outfit just in time for Easter.

Found by leakers Lucas7Yoshi and ShiinaBR, the Nighthare set is exactly as you would expect from the name.

It features a haunting version of a bunny who seems like they would always wear black even if its 90 degrees outside.

It also comes with a pickaxe called the “Steel Carrot” and a back bling called “Floppy” which appears to be an all-black rabbit voodoo doll?

Here’s two solid pictures of the main skin from Shiina:

Lucas Yoshi provides views of the other two parts of the set along with the absurd text stream found in the game files.

According to Lucas, the reason this set was unencrypted – a rarity in Fortnite cosmetics lately – was because some Polish YouTubers had the set gifted to them.

It’s not clear if that was an error or by design, but apparently that is the reason these became available.

Since we are very far from Halloween, it makes the most sense for these to be demented versions of skins meant for Easter.

That means we will probably see this skin in the item store this weekend.

Will you take a break from the holiday to find a computer/console and purchase this set? Why or why not?

Is Darth Vader going to be Fortnite Season 3?

A recent Epic Games livestream has the Fortnite community believing that Darth Vader will be coming to the game during Season 3.

A clip from a recent Epic Games showcase has players believing Darth Vader is coming to Fortnite, but are the rumors true?

During a State of Unreal Showcase on April 5, 2022, a clip was shown of a Fortnite developer working on in-game content. But a list of files on another desktop has caught the Fortnite community’s eye.

The folders were named after several assets already in Fortnite. Characters such as Madcap, Pyro, Loki, and LeBron. But there were other folders named after content that hadn’t been released.

While the folder names are blurry, squinting leakers have deciphered the digital letters. These include Doom, Family Guy, and a folder titled C3S3_VADER.

Darth Vader folder spotted during showcase

Leakers were quick to share the screenshot and speculate the arrival of Darth Vader. “DARTH VADER MIGHT BECOME A SKIN IN SEASON 3”, Shiina tweeted as soon as the news broke.

It’s even more convincing since the folder is so cryptically named. It shares the same naming scheme as several of Fortnite’s in-game assets: C3S3_VADER.

Is Darth Vader coming to Fortnite?

Right now, we don’t know. It is entirely possible as Epic Games has a good relationship with Disney. As well, there have already been several Star Wars skins added to the game already.\

That being said, all of the Star Wars skins in-game are from Episodes 7-9. Darth Vader would be the first Star Wars skin to reference the original trilogy, let alone the first six movies.

Only time will tell whether the leak is real or if Epic Games is just teasing us.

Until then, check out the latest patch notes from Fortnite Season 2, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite is crossing over with Assassin’s Creed to add two iconic characters from the franchise to the Battle Royale roster.

Assassin’s Creed is not only one of Ubisoft’s most iconic franchises, but is one of the most widely recognized series in all of gaming. And since Fortnite adds Gaming Legends to its roster, it only makes sense that Assassin’s Creed would make the cut.

Ezio Auditore was found in the game’s files at the end of Chapter 3 Season 1, but was never officially released. Now, a second character from the Assassin’s Creed universe has been revealed along with a release date.

Here is everything we know about the Ezio and Eivor skins coming to Fortnite.

Ezio is likely the most well-known Assassin’s Creed character as he appeared in Assassin’s Creed II, Revelations, and Brotherhood. Eivor, on the other hand, is one of the leading characters in the latest installment, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

The Ezio Outfit comes with his Hidden Blade pickaxe and a built-in emote. He also has an unhooded bonus style.

Eivor also comes with a hooded style variant, as well as a slew of cosmetics. The base skin includes the Eivor Shield Back Bling and Raven Clan Pickaxe, which come with a built-in emote.

Players can also purchase the Wolf-Kisses Longboat Glider separately. A bundle includes all of the Eivor items and some exclusive gear: Wolf-Kissed spray, Eivor’s Fury Loading Screen, Raven Clan Emoticon, and Tales from the Animus banner.

Fortnite x Assassin’s Creed release date

The skins will drop into the Fortnite Item Shop on April 7 at 8 PM EST. However, Epic Games hasn’t stated how long the items will stay in the shop.

Assassin’s Creed cosmetic prices

We don’t know the exact price of the Assassin’s Creed skins quite yet, but we can make an educated guess. The prices of the previous Gaming Legends skins have been between 1,500 and 1,600 V-Bucks.

The cosmetic bundle will likely discount the items making them slightly more affordable.

The second Concept Royale is here, and two skilled designers will have their spooky skins brought to life in Fortnite.

In June of 2021, Fortnite announced the first-ever Concept Royale. Given the theme of frosty and festive, players were challenged to design their own skins with a chance they’d end up in-game.

Winners Ladiale and Alta had their skins added to the game in December. And now, it’s time for Concept Royale round 2.

Here’s everything you need to know about designing and submitting your skins for Concept Royale 2.

Fortnite Concept Royale 2022 details

This time around, players can ditch the frosty and festive designs and focus on spooky and creepy characters. That’s because Concept Royale 2022 is themed around the Fortnitemares event.

Epic Games is looking for Halloween-themed skin designs, and the top two will be put in Fortnite. To submit your skins, post them to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ConceptRoyaleContest2022.

Players have from March 7 at 10 AM EST until April 5 at 11:59 PM EST to submit their skins. Each participant is limited to one submission.
