Original Story (03/18/20): Remember back in 2018 when Travis Scott, Drake, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Ninja all squaded up on Fortnite? Well soon Fortnite will be releasing a new skin so we can all play as Mr. Cactus Jack.
A leaked image of the skin shows a shirtless Travis Scott wearing a silver chain, brown pants, and his Air Jordan 1 High collab. Emotes and other visual elements related to Travis Scott are also reported to be on the way.
No news on when exactly we’ll be able to play as La Flame, but since we’re all stuck indoors we hope that it’s soon. Grab a first look at the skin below.
Update (04/20/20): Fortnite has announced their Travis Scott crossover event. Here’s the official info for “Astronomical”:
From April 23-25, blast off into a one of a kind musical journey featuring Travis Scott and the world premiere of a brand new track. Astronomical is an other-worldly experience inspired by Cactus Jack’s creations, built from the ground up in Fortnite.
To make sure everyone has a chance to experience Astronomical, we’re setting up multiple tour dates with showtimes for players around the globe. Jump in to whichever time fits your schedule best, or catch an encore with your friends if they missed it.
