The current season of Fortnite is now approaching its fourth month, after the release date for the new season was delayed again, to 20 February.

While the previous season packed in a punch, ending in an epic orb explosion, some gamers have felt a bit less invigorated this season.

To keep players engaged in the run-up to the new season, Fortnite has released several Overtime challenges with new locations to visit and items to get.

And then, of course, there’s the thrill of seeing what’s in the item shop each day.

So, what is in the item shop today?

What is in the Fortnite item shop today?

The Fortnite item shop updates daily at midnight, where new outfits, gliders, harvesting tools and emotes are added.

While the items don’t enhance game-play, they can ensure you always look your best.

Today for v500, you can get the Touchdown or Golden Pigskin.

Alternatively, the Bracer is available for v800 and today’s best emotes include Freemix, Leapin’, No Sweat, Spike It, Denied, Slow Clap or Time Out – all priced at v500.

If you’re feeling extravagant, for v1,500 you can buy the Abstrakt outfit.

Items can be purchased using V-bucks, which gamers can buy on the respective store for their console.

For 1,000 V-Bucks, you’ll be looking at splashing around £7.99.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
