A Fortnite Captain America skin has been leaked in the game's files as Fortnite's July 4th surprise skin.

Epic Games updated Fortnite to v13.20. Flare guns have joined the fight, portable upgrade benches, and new skins and textures are among the changes. The patch notes read, "A Hero Arrives," and follows it with, "A mighty arrival is coming to the Item Shop this week. Stay tuned."

According to data miners, this new update has unveiled some strings in the game files that hint at Captain America being the aforementioned hero coming to the shop this week. Three strings have been added:

  • CAPTAIN AMERICA'S SHIELD
  • Captain America's shield is as indestructible as his will.
  • Equip Cap's Shield as a BACK BLING or PICKAXE!

Popular data miner @HYPEX went to Twitter to stamp his confirmation on the rumors with the tweet below.

Apparently, not only were those strings added to the game's files, but other textures relating to Captain America have been added to the game. The patch's hint at a new hero's arrival, Captain America being referred to in the game's files as well as new textures, plus HYPEX's confirmation means Captain America looks like he'll be entering the game within the next week.
