A totally new and unique skin has just been added in Fortnite. With details leaked over the past few days, it has been confirmed that the Galaxy skin has been added into the game. But only a few limited players will actually have access to this new cosmetic look! With the Android Beta being steadily rolled out over the next week or so, Samsung Galaxy users are the first to trial this.
The way in which players are to obtain this, however, seems somewhat limited. Currently, the main methods for collecting skins have been either via Battle/Season Passes, V-Bucks, Twitch Prime, or PS +. But the Galaxy skin will only be available (based on the current information), to a very small percentage of the current player base.
How to Get the Fortnite Galaxy Skin
Earlier today at the Samsung Unpacked 2018 event in New York, Tim Sweeney graced the main stage. For those who do not know who this living legend is, Tim is the founder of Epic Games back in 1998. During his appearance, he mentioned that there would be an exclusive reward tied in with some Samsung devices.
This, of course, was the new Galaxy Skin. Available exclusively as an option for those buying the new Galaxy Note 9 or the Galaxy Tab S4. Samsung has also stated that this offer will only run for a limited time. But buyers can also get these devices with the Galaxy skin and 15,000 V-Bucks in replacement of the AKG noise-canceling headphones. (Or pay extra for both).
Even though the Beta is ready and playable for other Galaxy users, the skin is only on those devices mentioned above. The result is that the Galaxy skin will become one of the, if not the rarest cosmetic in the game to date.
All the Galaxy devices which can play the Beta include the
- Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge, S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4.
