Fortnite is one of the biggest FPS battle royale games in the world right now. The constant updates, new skins, and collaborations make everyone look forward to these updates. The scheduled Fortnite update v24.40, which was supposed to be released earlier today, has been pushed to be released on May 17th due to technical issues. Therefore, we decided to take this time to help you guys with what we know so far about the leaked skins and events coming to Fortnite in v24.40.

Fortnite Leaks v24.20 Update: Skins and Events

Fortnite x Spider-Verse Collaboration – Miles Morales Skin

In our previously published article, we mentioned the highly awaited Miles Morales skin is coming to Fortnite along with one other skin. Fortnite confirmed this by teasing us with a small trailer on their official Twitter handle.

Another thing is that even though no announcements related to any event have been made as of now, we expect there will be a Fortnite x Spider-Verse event which will be similar to the Fortnite x Star Wars event that recently happened. At last, players will be able to earn free in-game items like pickaxes, emotes, and more.

According to a tweet that surfaced online, we can expect this event to come later in this update during Week 2 or Week 3.

  • This event will include various in-game quests.
  • There will be a lot of in-game items you can earn during this event, one of them being the Spray Horde.

Although not much information has been shared about this, keep your eyes on this post, as we will regularly update it as soon as we have any news.
