Streamer and content creator Ali “SypherPK” Hassan will be the newest Fortnite– the personality involves bringing his own digital skin into the game when his Icon Series outfits and accessories appear in the Fortnite Item Store next week. SypherPK received his own cosmetic kit that sent him into the air, joining the likes of Kathleen “Loserfruit” Belsten, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and most recently Maria “Chica” Lopez in Fortnite’s Icon Chain.
Like the other content generators, SypherPK’s will feature his skin, the Oni Curse’s backstroke, the Sypher’s Scimitar pickaxe, and the Sypher’s Strut emoji. You’ll be able to pick them up individually or in bundles when they arrive at the item store at 8pm ET on September 22nd.
The skins are pretty powerful in terms of features, coming with a default style of basically just real life SypherPK along with both reactive and non-reactive spooky styles. With his reactive style, he becomes more spooky with each kill. If you’re familiar with the reactive gold style of Marigold leather, you’ll more or less get it. Outfits also have the option to wear a mask, and the accessories will have the same basic styling options as the outfit, so you’ll be able to coordinate them.
SypherPK . Icon Trophy
As is the norm when Epic introduces new Icon sets, there will be a tournament before the set goes into the Item Store for your chance to win free skins and prizes. And there’s actually a bonus way to earn that skin this time, plus a free wrap, as shown below.
SypherPK Icon Cup – no crafting duel tournament – will take place on September 21st and the top performers, by location and kills, in each region will receive their usual skins. But this tourney will also include an alternate leaderboard to destroy with a new device called the SypherPK Trap Tower. The top spots there will also get you the costume and the backplate. So that’s neat.
And on top of that, SypherPK’s team has come together to create a new Creative map called PIT Island, which will be available very soon Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4 start up. On this map you will be able to relax in the oasis social center or, of course, shoot people in the free-for-all PvP area. If you complete the area quests then you will earn the Oni Ascension loading screen and the Sypher Is Here spray. Honestly, the loading screen isn’t half bad.
The PIT Island map will last until October 2. The SypherPK cosmetic set will likely remain in the Item Shop until that date.
