The latest addition to the game’s exclusive “Icon Series” is none other than Formula 1 superstar Lewis Hamilton. Known for featuring a mix of celebrities, Fortnite’s Icon Series now welcomes the seven-time F1 World Champion, offering players the chance to embody Hamilton’s virtual persona through a standalone skin or an all-inclusive bundle. You know what? That is not it! Hamilton’s cute and famous dog “Roscoe” has also been added to the game!
Hamilton’s digital makeover in Fortnite
Ditching the traditional Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team branding, the Lewis Hamilton skins showcase the driver’s distinct style. The standalone skin rocks a bold black or charcoal grey outfit with vibrant yellow and pink lightning-like motifs. Decked out with accessories like a beaded necklace, sunglasses, a single earring, a ring, and a watch, it’s a fashion statement with exposed tattoos to boot.
In the bundle, F1 vibes take the forefront with a sleek, armored black look, reminiscent of Black Panther’s gear. Complete with purple and yellow accents and a full-coverage helmet; this skin is a nod to Hamilton’s racing legacy and superhero aesthetics.
Seriously, welcome Roscoe!
Adding a dash of canine charm, Lewis Hamilton’s bulldog, Roscoe, steals the show in two items within the bundle. Picture this – Roscoe on a jet-powered surfboard or cruising the skies on a skyboard. As a bonus, the bundle throws in an energy-powered sword, ensuring players wielding Hamilton’s avatar do so with style.
How to get the Lewis Hamilton skin in Fortnite
With the rollout of update v27.10 on November 16, Lewis Hamilton’s virtual swag hit Fortnite. Hold tight, though; they won’t appear in the Item Shop immediately. Epic Games spilled the beans – mark your calendars for November 17 at 7 PM ET when Hamilton’s gear debuts in the Fortnite OG Shop.
With the OG Shop refreshing every 24 hours, players have a limited window to snag these exclusive cosmetics. The clock is ticking, and the purchase window closes on November 18 at 6:59 PM ET. Miss the deadline; you’ll have to bide your time until they cycle back into the shop.
For those who miss the initial sale, fear not. The set will return in the regular Item Shop, making it more accessible once Fortnite Season OG concludes. Stay tuned, be strategic, and secure your Lewis Hamilton gear – an opportunity that’s not to be missed in the ever-evolving world of Fortnite!
This collaboration underscores Fortnite’s commitment to delivering unique content. The Lewis Hamilton bundle, offering two skins, back bling, glider, and pickaxe, is up for grabs at 2,400 V Bucks. Opt for just the standalone skin at 2,000 V Bucks. Dive into the action and embrace the virtual adrenaline with Lewis Hamilton and Roscoe in Fortnite – an experience that’s anything but ordinary!
