According to the latest leaks, Fortnite is now expected to add a brand-new starter pack called “Skatepark Royalty” tonight, June 20th, at 8 PM eastern time.

Here’s the tweet that helped break the news, which also reminds players that the new pack will replace the existing Mecha-Pop STW pack:

The Toni skin grabbed a lot of attention when it was leaked about a month ago, thanks to the inclusive background of the character as a nonbinary addition.

Games have had a special opportunity to share inclusivity like this with all generations of gamers, and it’s great to see Fortnite take on the responsibility. It always makes a big difference for fans to see themselves represented on screen, however that takes shape.

Unfortunately, some fans were hoping for a bundle that more closely resembled the overall Save the World theme. After all, Toni’s outfit and gear don’t quite match up with the ongoing STW campaign.

Back Bling, Pickaxe, and V-Bucks

Aside from the anticipated Toni skin, the Skatepark Royalty bundle will also include two other items, the “Ollie-Oop” and “Inline Impactor”.

These naturally fit the skatepark idea, though the roller blades piackaxe has hilariously gotten a lot of love from fans as an accidental reference to Stranger Things, which did involve a roller blade attack.

Finally, the leaked image also suggests that players will be able to earn up to 1500 V-Bucks again, just like the Mecha-Pop pack. This is earned by completing daily STW quests, since the starter pack should grant players access to the campaign.

This is widely considered one of the larger draws of these starter pack. In fact, some fans are suggesting they will exclusively purchase the pack in pursuit of those V-Bucks. So, even if the skin isn’t for you, it could still be a solid deal for the right price.
