Epic Games has just dropped their latest update for Fortnite, bringing with it quite a few new in-game goodies to enjoy. Just like every update, as soon as that adjustment to the title goes live - the dataminers come out to play and it looks like this month we'll have more new cosmetic items than ever before, including customizable Soccer skins!

Below are some of the usual "weird" looking items players will be getting from our pals over at TwoEpicBuddies:

We've also got a look at the new gliders, pickaxes, and backpacks that will be coming to the game over the course of the month - also continuing the soccer theme that you can see a bit further down:

Now ... for the soccer outfits:

And you can't forget about the new emotes either:

As far as the Soccer cosmetics go, the team behind the datamine glory said that the files seem to suggest that the soccer skins will tailor to the player's country - even allowing players to choose which country they want to represent! This would be awesome since the World Cup for soccer (football) fans will be going down soon!

The soccer skins are also perfect given that there has been a new soccer stadium added to the map itself in the northern most part of the map. As for the patch that went live today, below are a few highlights you might enjoy:

  • Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle.
    • Available in Epic and Legendary variants.
      • 36-37 base damage.
    • Can see chests, Supply Drops, enemy heat signatures, and more.
    • Uses Medium ammo.
    • Can be found from floor loot, chests, and Supply Drops.
  • Renamed ‘Assault Rifle with Scope’ to ‘Scoped Assault Rifle’
  • The maximum range of most weapons increased to 275 meters from 250 meters to match the distance that players are visible.
  • The Jetpack has been Vaulted.
  • A new soccer stadium has been added to the northern area of the map.
  • Added new light color options to Carbide and Omega.
