The latest Fortnite skin, Windwalker Echo, may not be as familiar a face as LeBron James or Wonder Woman, but to anyone who saw last year’s Unreal Engine 5 reveal trailer, the action hero will be very familiar indeed. The Windwalker Echo skin is now available in the Fortnite Item Shop for a limited time, marking her first public appearance in over a year.
Fortnite Windwalker Echo Skin
We didn’t know much about Echo–including even her name–when she was first seen in May 2020’s Unreal Engine 5 tech demo running on a PS5. Her arrival in Fortnite includes a bit more lore for players who want to learn more about her.
For starters, she is what’s called a “windwalker,” which explains her flying squirrel-like ability to glide through canyons. As of today, she also stars in a new animation from Mold3D Studio, which is powered by Unreal Engine and should flesh out her background even more.
