According to a leak provided by the ever-diligent Fortnite dataminers, a LeBron James Icon Series skin is going to be added to the game at some point, probably very soon. It also seems like it will come with a series of King’s Bling quests, which will make your items become “more gold” as you complete them. While we don’t know how it’s all going to work just yet, but still, it’s exciting news, even if it is an elaborate ad for the new Space Jam movie.
Fortnite Leaks Reveal LeBron James Skin – Icon Series Skin
First of all, credit where credit is due – the two dataminers that leaked the Fortnite LeBron James icon series skin are Shiina, who first announced the discovery, and Hypex, who provided more details. You can check out both tweets below, if you want it straight from the horse’s mouth. Hypex specifically broke the news about the King’s Bling quests and what they do, aka making items more gold as you do them. Also, completing al quests will apparently reward you with a “custom goldness slider.”

Now, of course, we have yet to get any official confirmation of these leaks, but honestly, the info holds water to me. After all, the new Space Jam movie starring LeBron is coming out on July 16th, and having him as a skin in Fortnite is a great commercial. Sure, a bunch of people that were kids when the first Space Jam was popular are probably gonna see it anyway, but how do you get new butts in seats? Well, you put what amounts to a huge ad into Fortnite.
