An officially free Fortnite skin will be awarded later this week
Good news is coming from Epic Games. You won’t have to wait three weeks or more.
Although players have been given the opportunity to claim a free skin, it will take some time. Fortunately, not as much as Epic wrote in their regulations. We remind you that you have insured up to 3 weeks.
Meanwhile, the official announcement has calmed down that the skins are expected to hit the community later this week, likely after the 2:00 p.m. update.
When to expect skins?
On Thursday August 27, the new season begins. Epic officially announced yesterday that they would like to release a skin later this week.

So you can guess that it is Thursday or Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays, hardly anyone works at Epic Game.
At what time should you expect to have this skin? This is not known. The update should be available around 2:00 p.m. It will include new skins, map changes, battle pass.
