Fortnite Crew will be very special in August. The subscription service offers some nice benefits and a skin bundle. The latter for next month will feature Summer Skye, a skin that started out as fan art. Here are all the details.
In the most recent Fortnite Crew bundles, we saw the Mecha Team Leader and Marvel's Loki. Now, it's time to give back to the Fortnite community with Summer Skye. Is the skin as good as you'd expect?
Fortnite Crew August: Summer Skye
Summer Skye started out as mere fan art in the Fortnite community, but now it's all about to change. The skin will be officially released in just a few days. Epic Games confirmed the information with a post on their official website and Twitter.
Always seeking adventure, Skye takes a casual new persona for a summer spree. Joining Fortnite Crew before summer wraps up, Summer Skye and her Set arrive in August 2021's Crew Pack!

Inspired by @nollobandz and community creations from around the Island, Summer Skye joins the Fortnite Crew on August 1!https://t.co/xJpSlauF3k pic.twitter.com/tGaRcR6YLs
The creator of the skin is nollobandz. For those of you wondering, yes Summer Skye is actually Ava and the leaks were all true.
In fact, the original Ava tweet by nollobandz came all the way back in November 2020. Over half a year later, Ava finally made it into an actual skin.

What’s in Fortnite Crew for August?
The full list of items was revealed by Epic Games. In August, you can expect the following cosmetics as part of the subscription:
- Summer Skye Outfit with two styles
- Cursed Eagleshield back bling
- Epic Sword of Might pickaxe
- Pspsps! wrap
- Cattitude wrap
- Afternoon Quest loading screen
As you'd expect from a Fortnite Crew skin, Summer Skye will have two styles. The second one will be called Stormy Skye, changing the colors on her outfit and giving her an entirely different more goth look. But wait, there's more. If you join Fortnite Crew, you'll also receive some additional benefits like a free Battle Pass and 1,000 V-Bucks. You can also cancel the subscription at any point. The cost of the subscription comes at $11.99 per month.
