Fortnite: Olympic Snowboarder Chloe Kim to Join Icon Series March 26

Fortnite Battle Royale welcomes Olympic Snowboarder Chloe Kim to the Icon Series. 


Epic Games’ ongoing Icon Series collaborations bring celebrities, athletes and artists into Battle Royale mode. There’s been no shortage of real-life characters to appear in the game. Recently, the Icon Series saw musicians Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak, and Tennis star Naomi Osaka enters the fray. Today, the developers announced another athlete would follow suit. 

Today, Epic Games released a blog post to welcome 21-year-old professional Snowboarder Chloe Kim to the Icon Series. Kim is a decorated professional athlete who holds two Olympic gold medals in the winter sport. In 2017, she became the youngest woman to win a gold medal in this discipline. Beginning March 26, Kim will officially become an in-game Fortnite skin.
