Fortnite’s Crew skins have been all over the place, mostly original creations but sometimes things like Green Arrow from the CW DC universe. This month, we are back to originals, and this time, we have a connection to an iconic battle pass skin from years past.
Fortnite has just fully revealed Lynx’s sister Alli as the April Crew skin, which it describes as the following:
“Striding into Fortnite Crew is the felinely fashionable Alli, the star of April 2021’s Crew Pack. At approximately 8 PM ET on March 31, active Fortnite Crew members will receive this upcoming Crew Pack, which includes the Alli Outfit, the Squee Back Bling (a warning for ornery mice), the picked clean Skellyfish Pickaxe, the paw-plentiful Cat’s Paw Wrap, and the Catwalk Loading Screen.”
The loading screen is below showing Alli at her day job strutting on the runway.
Lynx was the Tier 1 battle pass skin from Chapter 1, season 7, and seemed to be a hacker type that you could upgrade with armor that made her look like a combination between Iron Man and Catwoman. It does not seem like Alli has a similar alternate armor look, but clearly the cat theme has carried over.
Alli is unique in the sense that I’ve never seen a Fortnite skin with hair quite like that, and I would imagine they’ve done a fair amount of work on the physics of those strands that go down practically to her knees as you run and shoot in combat, so curious to see what that will look like in motion.
As ever, subscribing to the monthly Fortnite Crew system for $12 gets you the monthly skin, the seasonal battle pass and 1,000 V-Bucks a month. If you’re already spending that many V-Bucks a month on Fortnite, it probably pays for itself pretty quickly, so I’m guessing a lot of avid fans have taken advantage of this, though I don’t think I’ve seen Epic actually release subscription totals for it.
I would say in the grand scheme of Fortnite Crew skins we’ve seen before, Alli is definitely one of the better ones, and would be tempting if I wasn’t already signed up for like 20 other subscription services, and I just don’t think I can do a dedicated Fortnite one at this point. But I mean, never say never, as lord knows I have been buying a lot of skins lately, so maybe I’d save money by doing so. I’ll try to run that math later.
Alli arrives March 31.
