Fortnite February Crew Pack Announced, Includes New Vi Skin
Epic Games has announced the latest addition to the Fortnite Crew Pack monthly subscription service. The sub is expanding into its third month thus far and it will not have a crossover skin this time around, but it will be a new Fortnite Vi skin that is actually pretty great in design.
Fortnite Vi Skin Pack Releases for February Crew Service
Per usual, the month of January is coming to an end soon so Epic Games has ensured that the current subscribers to the Fortnite Crew service will know exactly what is coming for them and their wallets next month. This is a great chance to keep players subscribing for the next month of content.
The new Fortnite Vi skin is the focus of the upcoming February month for the Fortnite Crew Pack. The monthly subscription will be joined by Vi and she is an awesome new skin who represents the lore of the battle royale game as part of the Fox Clan.
For those who love the lore of Fortnite battle royale, the story is that this Fortnite Vi skin features a new character who is the last hope of the Fox Clan. In many ways, there are some references and similarities between this character and Drifter who is one of the fan favorite skins from seasons past.
Vi is in a race against time and will be the latest addition to the Crew monthly subscription service. She will drop for the service actually this month, technically, for some of us in the world as it will drop on Sunday, January 31, at 4 pm PT (7 pm ET).
Vi Skin Comes With Two Skin Styles
For the rest of the world, many players will be able to pick up the skin and everything else that comes with it on February 1 as soon as the month begins. Basically, how it works is that anyone who has a current subscription to the Fortnite Crew Pack will be able to pick up this new Fortnite Vi skin next month.
It doesn’t even matter if you don’t resubscribe for the next month so long as you still have an active sub by the time that you reach the release date for the Fortnite Vi skin. So, basically, what this means is that if you currently have a subscription and it ends, let’s say on February 2, you will be able to get the Vi skin.
Even though it will end there and you will not be able to get the 1000 V-Bucks unless you renew your subscription, you will be able to get the Fortnite Vi skin pack. This pack comes with the skin that shows off the girl wearing what looks like a wintery fox outfit that has two skin styles.
The base one is mainly white with some nice pink accents that make it look cute and nice but the blue one is really great. It is blue and white, and looks solid. We are unsure at this time if the second skin style is available there for free or if you will have to unlock it through some special quests.
Vi Skin Pack Comes With Even More
But the Fortnite Vi skin pack doesn’t end there as it will include a decent loading screen with Vi’s normal skin style on it, a pickaxe that looks like a scythe, and an arrow quiver back bling. Both the pickaxe and quiver back blings change colors to match the skin style that you have chosen.
If you are interested in picking this up and you don’t currently have an active Fortnite Crew subscription, you are able to pick up the Fortnite Vi skin pack and even more by paying for the $11.99 USD sub. That is a lot considering that it is meant to be a monthly thing but you can cancel it at any time.
So, if you really like this particular Vi skin and just want it, you could subscribe for a month and then cancel it afterwards. What is great about this situation right now is that you still have time to get the Fortnite January Crew Pack that was released this month.
You Can Still Get Green Arrow and Vi in the Same Subscription Month
The January pack is a very popular one as it features the official Green Arrow crossover skin between Fortnite battle royale and DC Comics. This new superhero skin is only available through the Fortnite subscription service and you are unable to get it anywhere else.
There are only a few more days left in the month for now so if you are reading this and January isn’t over, you can still get it and the new Vi skin in February if you want to subscribe now. This is a great way to get some solid bang for your buck.
And it doesn’t end there, either, as you will also get the paid version of the season 5 battle pass if you don’t already have it right now when you subscribe for the first time. And you will also get 1000 V-Bucks, worth about $8 at this time with the discounted price, which almost makes up the subscription price on its own.
But you only get these once a month and they happen on the date that you originally subscribed so you would have to resubscribe for next month if you want to get it again if you already have the service. And for those of you who are lapsed users who are unsubscribed, you may need to relog into your original subscription device to get the new Fortnite Vi skin.
Let’s say, you subscribed in December on PS4 but you play on Nintendo Switch now. If you try to resubscribe right now, you may need to go back on PS4 if it has been more than 30 days since you last logged into that platform.
