Two-time Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim is coming to Fortnite on Sunday, Epic Games announced Wednesday.

How to get the Icon set
Like other Fortnite Icons, Kim will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop. Items available include the Chloe Kim outfit, Sub-Zero Flight Back Bling, Frozen Flourish Pickaxe, Nunbola Glider and Board Flair Emote.
Similar to other Icons in the past, Kim’s items will be available as individual Items or in bundles. Players who purchase the bundle will also receive the Nunbola’s Flight Loading Screen.
Chloe Kim’s Outfit comes in four alternate styles. In true Kim fashion, there are four fun colors called Back to Back, Pink Poppies, Deep Freeze and the reactive Icy Infusion. This reactive skin freezes over every time players score an elimination.
While Epic Games has yet to release the V-Bucks prices for these items, looking at similar examples can help. Icon outfits have cost approximately 1,500 V-Bucks in the past, and the bundle has previously cost approximately 2,500 V-Bucks. However, if you can’t wait until Sunday to grab these items, you can score them early by participating in the Chloe Kim Cup.

Players who want to score Kim’s items early (or save on some V-Bucks) can compete in the Chloe Kim Fortnite Cup. The Cup starts on Thursday and is a no-build, duos competition. Grab your Player 2 and enter for the chance to unlock outfits and back-bling before they hit the item shop.
In addition, the Cup is the snow themed Creative Hub. Players can jump into the Penguin Peak Hub and go skiing with other players. The Penguin Peak Hub will be live until the end of March.
