The King himself will be playable in-game for the first time ever, with three customisable outfits that blend the best of LeBron’s personal style on and off the court, including a collaboration for his upcoming film.
The LeBron James Outfit comes with the King’s Back Bling, and can be bundled with a new Wingspan Glider, Lion Pickaxe, and Silencer Emote mirroring his infamous on-court celebration.
LeBron’s matching Outfit, Back Bling, Lion Pickaxe, and Wingspan Glider also all feature a progressive edit slider — allowing players to add more than 20 gold variations of the outfit.
Additionally, the ‘Tune Squad’ outfit is available as an ode to LeBron’s starring role in Space Jam: A New Legacy and a Taco Tuesday outfit to help fuel gamers on their path to victory. Each outfit gives players the ability to run, jump, and build their way around the island in The King’s unreleased Nike LeBron 19 shoes. Fortnite will be the first place where the shoes are “available for wear”.
Keep a lookout for all of LeBron’s items in the Shop starting Thursday, 15 July, 10AM AEST.
