This week’s Fortnite patch, version 3.5.0, has only just been released, and dataminers have wasted no time looking for new cosmetics.
Fortnite patches typically bring more content to the game than what Epic officially reveals in the patch notes. Things like new character skins, gliders, backpacks are usually included.
Epic then announces and releases these items over the course of the coming days. Now that Fortnite is on a new patching schedule, some of these could show up next week when it’s time for the content update. Players will definitely be happy to find new content in the game without downloading any.
Fortnite dataminer and YouTuber @TwoEpicBuddies found references to several new cosmetic items, and even managed to dig up some screens from game files.
As you’re about to see, this includes new skins, pickaxes, and gliders. One of these outfits is a fish head, for maximum absurdness.
It’s not yet clear if all of these will be made available in one go soon, or if Epic will release them one at a time. You’ll find out as soon as we do.
