Without a doubt, Fortnite has managed to become a worldwide sensation, and in order to keep fans coming back for more, Epic Games continues to add a plethora of skins, items, modes, and more so as to ensure that the title is flush with content. Speaking of fresh additions, the studio has now decided to include a new cosmetic with the incorporation of the Abstrakt graffiti artist skin and a supplementary Renegade Roller pickaxe.
As seen in the tweet below from the official Fortnite Twitter account, fans of the free-to-play Battle Royale portion of the game can get a look at the Abstrakt outfit, which appears to be the male counterpart to the Teknique skin. Those interested can acquire the Abstrakt outfit now through the title’s store for 1,500 V-Bucks, while the Renegade Roller is priced at 1,200 V-Bucks. With this being the case, the whole set ought to set players back a little more that $25.
Roll out in style!

As previously mentioned, Fortnite is practically filled to the brim with cosmetics in order for players to set themselves apart from other combatants on the battlefield. This aspect is almost assuredly one reason why the sandbox survival title’s mobile version managed to earn five times the revenue over PUBG‘s on-the-go port within both iterations’ first weeks. Should Epic Games continue to flood the free-to-play release with more marketable goodies, then such a trend is likely to continue.
All things considered, it will be interesting to see just how long this battle royale craze will last with Fortnite arguably at the forefront of the genre’s resurgence. Yes, PUBG initially succeeded at bringing the gameplay style back into the collective consciousness of the gaming community, but with Fortnite‘s more cartoon-like design and its free-to-play accessibility, it looks as if the Epic Games title could remain King of the Hill for quite a while.
Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
