As Fortnite continues its trend of collaborating with various industries, sports, and entertainment, the Icon Series welcomes a new addition – Lewis Hamilton, the Formula One racing champion. This guide provides all the essential details for Fortnite enthusiasts eager to acquire the Lewis Hamilton skin and its accompanying cosmetic items.
How to Get Lewis Hamilton in Fortnite
Lewis Hamilton will be featured in the Icon series, making his cosmetics available in the Fortnite Item Shop. However, it’s crucial to note that these items won’t be immediately accessible after the release of update v27.10 on November 16. Instead, players can find the Lewis Hamilton cosmetics in the Fortnite OG Shop starting November 17 at 7 PM ET.
The OG Shop undergoes a daily refresh, giving players until November 18 at 6:59 PM ET to make their purchases before the items rotate out.
Players might find it more convenient to obtain the set after the conclusion of Fortnite Season OG, when the regular Item Shop returns.
Lewis Hamilton Cosmetic Set
The Lewis Hamilton cosmetic set is expected to be comprehensive, featuring not only the iconic racing champion skin but also additional items that enhance the Fortnite experience. The set is rumored to include:
- Harvesting Tool
- Back Bling (Roscoe, Lewis Hamilton’s pet pitbull)
- Glider Variant with Roscoe
Moreover, speculations suggest that the Lewis Hamilton set might consist of two skins, each offering distinct variants. As these are part of the Icon series, the cost for these skins is estimated to be around 1,500 V-Bucks, although the final pricing may vary depending on the specific cosmetic bundles offered.
For Fortnite enthusiasts and Formula One fans alike, the Lewis Hamilton skin and its accompanying items present an exciting opportunity to integrate the racing world into the vibrant Fortnite universe.
As the release date approaches, players should stay tuned for any additional details and announcements from Epic Games to ensure they don’t miss out on this exclusive collaboration.
