The Fortnite founder’s pack was originally released last year, on July 25, as the easiest way to buy Fortnite Save the World. A few months later, in September, when the game’s Battle Royale mode was released for free, fans who had previously bought the founder’s pack were promised skins for the new mode. But those skins never actually came out. Now after almost a year of waiting, Epic has announced the release of the two founder’s pack skins.

The skins in the announcement are the exact skins that fans were promised with the initial release of Battle Royale which makes them a little strange to look at today. Epic has been steadily improving the quality of skins over Fortnite’s last five seasons, but these two feel like a throwback to the quality and type of skins released during the game’s first two seasons.
The two skins will be available as a part of Fortnite’s upcoming patch v5.10, which has already had a few of its in-game additions announced, including the founders skins, a new SMG and a new change to Slurp Juice. While Epic has not formally announced a release date for the patch yet, it should be out in the next couple of days.
