Say hi to Lewis Hamilton and his dog Roscoe in Fortnite
Formula 1 superstar Lewis Hamilton joins Fortnite's exclusive "Icon Series" with his own skins and even his famous dog "Roscoe."
Fortnite's exclusive "Icon Series" has just welcomed Formula 1 superstar Lewis Hamilton into its ranks. This addition offers players the opportunity to embody Hamilton's virtual persona through a standalone skin or an all-inclusive bundle. But wait, there's more! Hamilton's beloved dog, Roscoe, has also been introduced into the game.
The Lewis Hamilton skins break away from the traditional Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team branding, showcasing the driver's unique style. The standalone skin features a bold black or charcoal grey outfit with vibrant yellow and pink lightning-like motifs. Complete with accessories such as a beaded necklace, sunglasses, a single earring, a ring, and a watch, it's a fashion statement that even includes exposed tattoos.
In the bundle, F1 influences take center stage with a sleek, armored black look reminiscent of Black Panther's gear. With purple and yellow accents and a full-coverage helmet, this skin pays homage to Hamilton's racing legacy and superhero aesthetics.
Adding a touch of canine charm, the Lewis Hamilton bundle also features two items that showcase his bulldog, Roscoe. Picture this - Roscoe on a jet-powered surfboard or cruising the skies on a skyboard. As an added bonus, the bundle includes an energy-powered sword, ensuring that players wielding Hamilton's avatar do so with style.
These virtual swag items became available in Fortnite with the rollout of update v27.10 on November 16. However, they did not immediately appear in the Item Shop. Epic Games has revealed that Hamilton's gear will debut in the Fortnite OG Shop on November 17 at 7 PM ET.
The OG Shop refreshes every 24 hours, giving players a limited window to purchase these exclusive cosmetics. The purchase window closes on November 18 at 6:59 PM ET, so players need to act fast if they want to snag these items. For those who miss the initial sale, the set will return in the regular Item Shop after Fortnite Season OG concludes.
This collaboration highlights Fortnite's dedication to delivering unique content. The Lewis Hamilton bundle, which includes two skins, back bling, glider, and pickaxe, is available for purchase at 2,400 V Bucks. Players can also opt for just the standalone skin at 2,000 V Bucks. Immerse yourself in the virtual adrenaline of Fortnite with Lewis Hamilton and Roscoe - an experience that is truly extraordinary!
