Fortnite - Superman skin: Release date and time, including all the Superman cosmetic items explained

The Man of Steel is on his way!

Superman is Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7's special skin, like Neymar Jr, Predator and Wolverine before him.

Alongside the Superman skin, you'll be able to collect a series of items all inspired by the Man of Steel - from the Daily Planet Back Bling to Kal-El's Cape Glider.

Below you'll find the release date and time for the Superman skin in Fortnite, along with a complete list of all the Superman cosmetic items we currently know about.

Story Trailer For Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 7

Superman skin release date and time in Fortnite explained

Thanks to the in-game counter, we know the Superman skin in Fortnite will be released on Thursday, 12th August.

Since it's being released on a day when we typically see new challenges arrive in Fortnite, it feels safe to assume the Superman skin will be made available at the same time as that week's quests.

This release time will be:

  • UK - 3pm (BST)
  • Europe - 4pm (CEST)
  • East Coast US - 10am (EDT)
  • West Coast US - 7am (PDT)

While you wait for the Superman skin to be released, you can work on unlocking the Season 7 Battle Pass skins and flying UFOs.

The alien invasion of Fortnite has begun! Expect a new Season 7 Battle Pass, UFOs, Alien Artefacts, Cosmic Chests, ray guns, payphone locations and rubber ducks to be added to the new map. Elsewhere, we have a new Victory Umbrella, and later in the season will be the arrival of a Superman skin.

Superman cosmetic items in Fortnite explained

Despite not being able to unlock the Superman skin in Fortnite, we can look at the Superman themed cosmetic items we'll be able to earn once the skin is available.

There are, including the overall skin, 10 Superman-themed items to collect:

  • Clark Kent Skin
  • Secret Identity Built In-emote, which allows Clark to transform into Superman
  • Clark Kent (Shadow) Skin Variant
  • Call to Action Emoticon
  • Kal-El's Cape Glider
  • Solitude Striker Harvesting Tool
  • Superman-themed Banner Icon
  • Superman Shield Spray
  • The Daily Planet Back Bling
  • The Last Son of Krypton Loading Screen

How might we unlock the Superman skin in Fortnite?

Currently, we have no idea how the Superman skin will be unlocked in Fortnite.

Though, by looking back at how we unlocked the Neymar Jr skin, it feels safe to assume we may have to complete a series of Superman themed challenges in a similar fashion to the football inspired challenges from last season.


There's also a possibility that the new Battle Pass system for Season 7 will be implemented on the Superman themed cosmetics, especially since they are divided over two pages. This could mean we'll have to use Battle Stars, or a Superman themed currency like Kryptonite, to unlock the cosmetics we prefer, with some having a higher requirement level than others.


This is all, of course, speculation and we're fully prepared to be wrong!
