You Can Now Play Fortnite as Hailee Steinfeld’s Arcane Character, Vi — Here’s How
The latest skin coming to Fortnite is Vi from Arcane, Netflix’s acclaimed adaptation of League of Legends. The Fortnite skin is based off Vi’s appearance in the second and third acts of the animated series, and shows Vi wearing her signature red jacket with her asymmetrical pink hair, tattoos and piercings. The skin is available as part of the Arcane Vi Bundle, alongside a back bling cosmetic, harvesting tool, loading screen and emote.
How to Get the Fortnite Vi Skin
The Arcane Vi Bundle is available in the Fortnite Item Shop for 1,800 V-Bucks starting from January 23. The bundle includes the Arcane Vi skin plus two cosmetics you can equip the Piltover Enforcer with: the Memories of Zaun back bling and the Piltover Warden Hammer harvesting tool. It also comes with the Punching Practice emote and a gorgeous artwork of Vi and her sister Jinx that you can set as your Fortnite loading screen.
You can also buy the Fortnite Vi skin on its own for 1,500 V-Bucks.
Who is Vi in Arcane?
The Fortnite Vi skin will be instantly recognisable for fans of Arcane and League of Legends. The Memories of Zaun cosmetic is Vi’s childhood bunny toy that she gives to her sister Jinx, before a tragic night separates them and puts them on opposite sides of a brewing war.
The Piltover Warden Hammer is the hextech tool Jayce uses in Arcane to defend the city from Jinx, and the Punching Practice emote is a reference to Vi’s legendary shadowboxing skills.
Arcane stars Hailee Steinfeld as Vi, Ella Purnell as Jinx, Katie Leung as Caitlyn and Kevin Alejandro as Jayce.
How to Get the Fortnite Jinx Skin
To celebrate Vi’s arrival, Fortnite is bringing back the Arcane Jinx skin and bundle. In addition to the skin, which reflects Jinx’s appearance in Arcane and League of Legends, the Jinx bundle includes the Jinx’s Dream Monkey back bling, Pow Pow Crusher pickaxe, Playground lobby track and Jinxed spray, as well as the Wreacking Havoc and Katchoo! loading screens.
The complete first season of Arcane is now streaming on Netflix, and now you can drop in as Vi to nab that Fortnite victory as Piltover’s finest.
