Beginning May 16th, fans can find the new Zuri skin in the item shop along with the all-new Champion in the Ring set. But that’s not all, you can continue to help shape Zuri yourself. We’ll tell you how here.

Fortnite: Zuri brings the spirit of the Squared Circle to Battle Royale

This is what the skin looks like: Bring the fighting spirit and look of MMA and wrestling to Fortnite with Zuri. Epic Games themselves call them “an undefeated fighter known for her elegance in combat‘ and in Zuri’s set, in addition to her skin, you get the new loading screen ‘The best in the ring‘ and the back accessory ‘Enchanted Battle Feathers“. Here’s how Zuri and the additional perks look like in-game:

How expensive is the set? For Zuri you have to put down 1,200 V-Bucks in the Fortnite Item Shop to get the new outfit. You will receive the two extras with the purchase, but you cannot get them individually. Epic Games also has more plans for Zuri and plans to release an alternate version of her outfit soon. This is where you come in, because Zuri is supposed to get a few more tattoos in this alternate version, and you can design them yourself and send them in to the developer studio in Cary, North Carolina.
