Fortnite is to welcome Basketball superstar LeBron James as the latest addition to the battle royale’s Icon Series, developer Epic Games has announced.
He’ll drop into the game’s item shop tomorrow, and will arrive with two separate outfits that are said to “blend the best of LeBron’s on-court and pre-game persona.” There’ll also be a separate outfit available that, as you’ve probably guessed, ties in with his upcoming appearance in Space Jam: A New Legacy which releases in cinemas later this week.
On top of these two, the store will also feature a King James Gear Bundle with a Lion Pickaxe, Wingspan Glider and an emote based on James’ on-court celebration, The Silencer. The items also come with a progressive edit slider that allows for more than 20 variations and will hopefully allow your James to stand out from the crowd. And of course, you’ll be able to pick up everything in a King James Bundle that also includes a special loading screen for one price.
The Fortnite LeBron James Icon Series collection lands in the in-game shop from tomorrow, July 14. James is the latest sports star to crossover into Fortnite, and comes just over a month after the addition of soccer players Harry Kane and Marco Reus.
