Intel and Fortnite are collaborating with a processor and software offer with players being able to get the Surf Strider skin for free.
Epic Games have collaborated with a number of companies since the Battle Royale Fortnite game mode released more than three years ago. Past collaborations include John Wick, Travis Scott, Marshmello, several Marvel movies, Stranger Things and more. There have also been collaborations with gaming and hardware companies including Sony, OnePlus, Samsung, Nintendo, and Xbox.
PlayStation players have got the most free Fortnite skins with a number of different PS Plus celebration packs being released. However, other platforms including Nintendo Switch and Xbox have had to buy expensive bundles as to get a free skin, they’ve had to buy a controller or entire console bundle like the Eon Xbox bundle.
A few days ago, data-miners found a new collaboration, this time it’s Fortnite and Intel teaming up to provide players with not just a free skin, but an entire bundle, Splash Squadron, that includes a glider, pickaxe, and a skin. Here’s everything we know so far.
