One of the biggest content creators in the entire world has announced a massive collaboration recently.

Lachlan, an Australian creator exploded in popularity during the boom of Fortnite back in 2018/2019.

Now, Epic Games has rewarded Lachlan for his dedication to the game with a future skin as apart of the Icon Series.

Here are all the details! 

Icon Series

Lachlan’s skin will be the next cosmetic bundle as apart of the Fortnite Icon Series.

This kickstarted with Ninja back at the beginning of 2020.

Then popular Australian streamer LoserFruit was next in line for the series, and now Lachlan will be joining the bunch.

Epic Games posted a blog post with the announcement here with some more details on the skin bundle.

Release Date

Epic has confirmed the skin bundle will release into the item shop on November 12th!

Price

As of now, we do not know an official price for the Lachlan skin along with the price of the bundle.

We can assume the skin itself will cost around 1200 Vbucks, with the entire bundle potentially costing up to 2000 Vbucks.

Pickaxe Frenzy

What Is It?

Epic has also announced a unique way to earn the Lachlan skin without purchasing it.

They have announced the Pickaxe Frenzy event which they have noted as:
