LeBron James Reigns Supreme with New ‘Fortnite’ Skin

LeBron “LeFortnite” James is my favorite athlete of all time and if there’s anyone who could get me to actually re-install Fortnite and use my mother’s credit card for a new skin, it’s that dude. Epic announced today that King James is making his Fortnite debut July 14, two days ahead of the premiere of Space Jam: A New Legacy.

The release will include two separate outfits — each equipped with King James’ upcoming signature shoe, the Nike LeBron 19, according to Epic Games. There will also be a bundle available that includes the following items:

King James Gear Bundle: lion pickaxe, wingspan glider, and LeBron’s signature “Silencer” on-court celebration made most famous by his dominating performance playing for the Miami Heat.

The matching items from the bundle will all feature a progressive edit slider that will allow players to tweak the gold color scheme to their choosing, making variations more personal.
