How to get Fortnite Patrick Mahomes skin: Release date and NFL cosmetics
NFL cosmetics are returning to Fortnite for another stint as a new Patrick Mahomes ICON skin is up for grabs, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including the release date and all cosmetics.
Way back in 2018, NFL cosmetics made their way to Fortnite for the first time with the Gridiron skin. Fortnite players who purchased the skin could also utilize different variations that took on the color theme of the National Football League’s 32 teams.
With the NFL season set to start on Thursday, September 9, it’s no surprise that NFL cosmetics are returning to the game. Now, Epic Games have chosen Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes as the new ICON series skin.
