September 20 is the data set for the planned Fortnite Area 51 raid and it seems like Fortnite will be celebrating the occasion with the brand new alien themed skin. Dataminer s1l0x has discovered in the Area 51 skin in the newest update of Fortnite, and it looks like fans of the Fortnite Battle Royale will be able to get their hands on it sooner rather than later.
The Fortnite Area 51 skin includes a green alien wearing an Area 51 jumpsuit. The skin is called as the Traveler and will apparently have a matching pickaxe. However, if the developer of Fortnite named Epic Games does not decide to add the Area 51 skin to Fortnite, it is not clear exactly how players will obtain it in the game. there is a possibility that there will be a special event tied to the skin that the players will have to complete to unlock it, but there is also a chance that it will only be available to purchase through the in game store using V Bucks.
With the area 51 raid supposedly taking place on Friday, September 20, it seems like that the Area 51 skin will be added to the Fortnite Battle Royale game sooner rather than later. In fact, the fans of Fortnite should be able to expect this one to go live this coming Thursday, September 19, that is also when the new challenges will go live in the game.
Fortnite Area 51 skin is reminiscent of Monster, Inc. character named Mike Wazowski, as this one features a green suit with one big eye, but it also has two 51 logos slapped on it. Actually, the suit itself has horns, while Mike does not, but the resemblance is still uncanny. In addition, the suits wearing a high security ankle bracelet that can indicate it escaped from the famous Area 51.
The Fortnite Area 51 raid has taken the internet by storm. It has become one of the biggest memes of the year. However, the memes have led to some unfortunate consequences already. Some people have legitimately began showing up in the Nevada desert and have gone on to the restricted area, resulting in some legal consequences.
There was an instance recently where a Youtuber from Netherlands was arrested for trespassing near Area 51. The authorities in the area will likely try to arrest the other people that they find trespassing, so it will be interesting to see what happens come September 20.
If the Area 51 meme is still becoming a hot topic of post raid, there is a possibility that the other live service games besides Fortnite will add references to it as well. The only thing that you have to do is to wait and see what happens come September 20.
