Neymar skin Fortnite: Release date, leaked images, and how to unlock

With each new Fortnite season, Epic Games continues to break the boundaries and include some awesome new collaborations.

And that's the case with Fortnite Season 6 as well, which brings tons of new and awesome skins and crossovers, including characters like Tomb Raider's Lara Croft and Raven from Teen Titans.

This is, of course, just a beginning and we can expect to see dozens of new crossover characters coming to Fortnite throughout the 6th season.

And one of those new skins will make football fans particularly excited, as it is confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain’s star Neymar Jr will be coming to Fornite this season, as a playable character skin.

Neymar, who is an avid gamer himself, will be the first-ever real-life athlete to get his skin in the game, although this is far from the first time that Epic Games is including real-life sports in Fornite. Earlier this year we've got football club outfits as skins during the Fortnite Pelé Cup event, and even prior to that, NFL jerseys were added to the game.

And while Neymar is confirmed as a new skin, he is not getting released along with the start of Season 6, so fans are wondering: When will Neymar skin come to Fortnite?

Epic Games hasn't yet officially revealed the release date, but according to the prominent Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR, Neymar Jr. will be available in 43 days since the start of Season 6, which started on 16th March.

This means that Neymar skin will become available near the end of April, approximately on 27th April.

Fortnite Neymar skin images: Are there any leaks?

At the time of writing, there are no confirmed leaked images of Neymar's skin, so we don't know how the skin looks, yet.

There are some images floating around, but it has been confirmed that those are fake! As soon as real ones appear, we will share them with you here.

Fortnite Neymar skin: How to unlock

Given that Neymar will probably be the main star of the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass, it is expected that we will need to complete several challenges to unlock him.

Once they are finally added, you will be able to find them in your Battle Pass screen, under the Neymar Jr. challenges.

When they add them, check them out and complete them. Once all completed, you will earn the Fortnite Neymar skin, which will be added to your collection!
