What are the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 skins?

The arrival of Chapter 2, Season 7 heralded the release of a new Battle Pass.

That means there are loads of new skins you can now unlock by levelling up your character.

The new season’s theme is “invasion” – specifically alien invasion – so many of the new skins are themed around extraterrestrials.

Fortnite-maker Epic Games also has a bunch of recent purchasable skins that will almost certainly be available in the new season, too.

Latest Fortnite skin – Lebron James

The latest update to Fortnite has added several Lebron James skins.

They’re available as of July 14 at 8pm New York time.
