Birdie, Fortnite's newest skin, is now available in the in-game store.
Epic Games' online multiplayer shooter gained massive popularity with the addition of its battle royale mode that capitalized upon the initial interest formed by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and established itself as the most popular game of 2018.
A large part of Fortnite: Battle Royale's popularity is its constant updates which adds constantly new content at a rapid pace to maintain novelty.
The latest update was focused around fixes and improvements, but also saw changes to the in-game store on April 14 that added several new cosmetics, including the Birdie skin.

Birdie Fortnite: How Much Does it Cost?
The v8.30 update added new cosmetics, many of which were leaked, but the Birdie skin had not been found by dataminers. The golfer-themed outfit was a pleasant surprise to players logging in to see their daily deals.
The featured items on the April 14 store are:
- Subirb skin (Rare) - 1,200 V-Bucks
- Birdie skin (Uncommon) - 800 V-Bucks
- Driver pickaxe (Uncommon) - 500 V-Bucks
- Mezmer skin (Rare) - 1,200 V-Bucks
- Axetec pickaxe (Uncommon) - 500 V-Bucks
- Sunrise glider (Rare) - 800 V-Bucks
- Magma wrap (Epic) - 700 V-Bucks
The Birdie skin was originally released at 1,200 V-Bucks due to an error. The Fortnite team announced that its pricing had been updated to 800 V-Bucks and players who'd purchased the skin before the pricing fix would be compensated for the difference.
