Lewis Hamilton and His Dog Roscoe Join the ‘Fortnite’ Icon Series

Fortnite has introduced its next big name to its “Icon Series,” which generally includes athletes, actors, musicians, content creators and other types of celebrities. The latest addition is none other than celebrated F1 driver Lewis Hamilton — available for a limited time as either a standalone skin or bundle package.

Notably, the skins are devoid of any Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team branding and instead embrace another element Hamilton is known for, his style. One of the two skins features the famed driver in a black or charcoal grey pants and jacket set that is accented with vibrant yellow and pink motifs that appear like lightning. Accessories on this skin include a beaded necklace, sunglasses, a single earring, a ring and a watch — with plenty of exposed tattoos.

The other skin available as part of the bundle pack takes on more of an F1 inspiration, with full body coverage from the head to the toes in a sleek armored black look with purple and yellow accents. The look also is highly reminiscent of Black Panther’s armor, featuring small ears at the top of the full-coverage helmet.

Also making a debut is Hamilton’s bulldog Roscoe, who is present in two of the five items in the bundle. In addition to Roscoe on a jet-powered surfboard or skyboard for that matter, is an energy-powered sword. In total, the pack includes the two skins, back bling, glider and pickaxe for 2,400 V Bucks or 2,000 V Bucks for the singular skin, all of which is available now in the game.
