'Fortnite' Will Be Adding Snowboarding Champion Chloe Kim + Event Later This Week

by Rainier on March 23, 2022 @ 9:12 a.m. PDT

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus.

The last one standing wins.

Queen of the half-pipe, snowboarder Chloe Kim now prepares for the slopes around Logjam!

This two-time gold medalist will soon be sliding into the Icon Series, with her Outfit and accessories becoming available starting Saturday, March 26, 2022, at 8 PM ET. But before this, dream and go big in March 24’s Chloe Kim Cup! The top-performing players in each region will unlock the Chloe Kim Outfit (+ more) prior to its Item Shop debut.

The Kicker of the Chloe Kim Outfit: Alt Styles

Change up the snowsuit of the Chloe Kim Outfit! The Outfit comes with four alt Styles in addition to its default one:

  • Back to Back: Black snowsuit adorned with a gold dragon — inspired by her back-to-back gold medal victories.
  • Pink Poppies: Pink and blue snowsuit with a change in hair color to match.
  • Icy Infusion: Reactive! Start out looking like the Pink Poppies Style each match, then as you get more eliminations, become as icy as the Deep Freeze Style below.
  • Deep Freeze Style: A frozen take on the Pink Poppies Style.


Chloe Kim Set Accessories

Hit the slopes extra prepared! Included with the Chloe Kim Outfit is the Sub-Zero Flight Back Bling

Below are the other Chloe Kim Set accessories that’ll be available in the Item Shop!

  • Frozen Flourish Pickaxe: Ready to leave the competition in the cold.
  • Nunbola Glider: Guardian of the icy peaks.
  • Board Flair Emote: Show off your half-pipe airtime. 

The Chloe Kim Outfit (+ Sub-Zero Flight Back Bling), Frozen Flourish Pickaxe, Nunbola Glider, and Board Flair Emote will be available individually or in the Chloe Kim Bundle. This bundle also includes the Nunbola's Flight Loading Screen:
