Fortnite Season 6: Epic Games reveals Neymar Jr. skin release date

Fortnite Season 6: Epic Games reveals Neymar Jr. skin release date

Epic Games has finally revealed the released date of the Neymar Jr. skin in Fortnite. The international Football star is coming to Fortnite with the S6 battle pass and will be available as a playable character from April 27.

Epic Games first teased the collaboration between Neymar and Fortnite at the beginning of Season 6 in March. Since then fans have been eagerly waiting to get their hands on the Neymar Jr. skin.

Two different styles of Neymar Jr. skin?

It looks like the Neymar Jr. skin will have two different styles and players will be able to switch between these two styles in-game. The first one will be a regular skin that resembles Neymar's physique and the other is likely a primal-themed mech suit. From the short video that Epic shared, we can see an armored suit with claws in the background. The suit looks similar to Black Panther from the MCU, but with a different color scheme.

Neymar Jr. skin price

The Neymar Jr. skin is free for S6 battle pass holders. If you don't have the battle pass, you can purchase the basic version for 950 V-bucks or $8.50 and the premium version for 2800 V-bucks. 

Apart from the skin, other likely Neymar Jr. rewards are-

  • Harvesting Tool

Epic Games has already added Lara Croft and Raven from the DC universe as playable skins. The developer will showcase the Neymar Jr. skin full reveal soon. Season 6 in Fortnite is likely to end in June. 

Fortnite is available to play on Windows, macOS, PS4, PS5. Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch.
