The Fortnite Power Chord gear is in the shop
UPDATE: The Fortnite Power Chord skin is back in the item shop today.
The news was confirmed by Epic Games earlier tonight, having posted a tease earlier on Twitter.
"Did someone say encore? The Power Chord Outfit and Volume 11 Gear is available now," a post from Epic Games reads.
So not only is there the Legendary Power Chord skin for 2,000 V-Bucks, but fans can also grab the Stage Dive Glider and Anarchy Axe too.
ORIGINAL: Fans are expecting the return of a very popular skin to the Battle Royale item shop tonight.
Players are hoping that a recent Twitter message posted by Epic Games means that the Power Chord skin is coming back later this week.
The rumors stem from a message shared on the official Fortnite Twitter account that mainly includes emojis.
It shows a lighting bolt and a guitar next to the caption “tonight”.
And many fans have taken that to mean that the Power Chord skin could be coming back tonight.
Epic Games like to bring back old favorites one in a while, the Red Knight skin being a perfect example.
And having just launched the big High Stakes event, it seems unlikely that the vague hint on Twitter will be anything significant for season 5.
There’s also the chance that this new hint is teasing the launch of a brand new skin that recently leaked.
The Fortnite Power Chord skin is back
Data miners found a wealth of new designs in update 5.40, including a rock ‘n’ roll frontman.
The Stage Slayer outfit can be seen wearing a studded leather jacket and looks to accompany the female Synth Star skin.
So there’s also the chance that these new outfits, as well as the Power Chord skin, could be back in the rotation tonight.
Or Epic Games could be teasing something completely different that has nothing to do with cosmetics.
The Power Chord is a Legendary skin that costs 2,000 V-Bucks and was added to the game this year.
It seems a little early for its return, having featured for two days in March.
But judging by the hype caused by that tweet, it could be a big seller when it does return.
“It will be the leaked skins and power chord together. they are a band probably,” one Reddit users predicts.
The Stage Slayer skin was leaked earlier this week
While another adds: “I hope they also bring back the Rock Out emote. Have been waiting for that sucker since April.
“Neither of the new skins plays the guitar, and also what about the lightning emoji? That pretty obviously supposed to be "power".”
The Synth Star and Stage Slayer outfits won’t cost as much when they go live as they are both ranked at the Epic level.
This means they will cost 1,500 V-Bucks and will likely launch with the leaked Epic Keytar harvesting tool and Kick Drum cosmetic item.
There is also another item that might make up the complete set, with the “Lead Swinger” microphone and stand harvesting tool also found by data miners.
When it comes to timing, Epic Games will likely perform the Fortnite item shop refresh tonight, at around 1 am in the UK.
The current stuff found in the item shop has a 24hr tag on it, meaning a new spot will open up later today.
It’s also expected that the High Stakes Wildcard outfits will return to the in-game store before the end of the event.
