Fortnite Releases New Icon Series Emote: The Airplane

The new 'The Airplane' Icon Series Emote is now available in the Featured Items section of the in-game shop.

Based on the winning NBA celebration from a vote in February, the new Emote can be purchased for just 300 V-Bucks. Unlike previous Icon Series Emotes, the celebration was encrypted in the files and therefore could not be leaked, making its arrival in today's Item Shop a surprise for all players. Although not mentioned in Epic's social media posts, the moves are based off NBA star Joel Embiid’s running aeroplane celebration, as seen below.

In other news, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney has revealed more details of Creative 2.0.
