Epic Games could be considering a lot of new skins for Fortnite, as per player surveys, and the options are out of this world. Seriously, you will be surprised at who they're trying to shoehorn into the battle royale.
One of these people is Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg, and this is bound to ruffle a few feathers. Kjellberg is arguably one of the most famous faces in gaming, having started his career a decade ago and specialising in Let's Plays of horror titles. Only three years afterwards, the channel had become the most-subscribed on the platform, and he diversified his content creation into viral challenges, poking fun at other YouTubers, and memes sent to him from fans. Recently, his changes from his original format got him into hot water, as he had stated that YouTubers should be the ones that edit their content, whereas he now outsources that work to someone else. Of course, he's been in hotter water in the past, but in this instance, he defended himself by saying, "I stayed true to myself and this idea."
Personalities like PewDiePie are a massive part of gaming. Usually, they're able to control the content they create, but when you're live, almost anything might happen. Check out our video of their greatest wins and fails below.
I suppose a PewDiePie skin wouldn't be too unlike that of Tyler "Ninja" Blevins' skin in the game, and imaginably, it would centre around the red and pink colour scheme of the YouTuber's channel. The other possibilities were leaked by HYPEX and are screenshots of a player survey that was passed round the community by Epic Games. Each set of skins are divided into categories like "Professional Athletes," "Video Game Characters," and "Actors, Comedians, and Performers." 2Pac, Arthur Morgan, Black Adam, Jim Halpert (from The Office), Lady Dimitrescu, Naruto and Samus are all on the cards according to these screenshots, and whether they make it into Fortnite is dependent on player interest.
Easily, the funniest category is "Actors, Comedians, and Performers." There's Takashi Murakami, Hannibal Buress, and Natalie Portman to name a few. Like. Who is asking for Academy Award-winning Natalie Portman in Fortnite. I guess we'll see if I'm totally out of touch in the coming months.
