Piltover Enforcer from League of Legends and star of Riot’s Netflix show Arcane – Vi has been officially added to Fortnite.
The LoL champion first came to this game in late 2012, and despite having many skins, it didn’t have a gloveless variant – until now.
But the gloves aren’t off for League of Legends players – the gloveless Arcane Vi skin is being added exclusively to Fortnite.
Vi was added to the Fortnite Item Shop today (January 23, 2022) with the Arcane Vi outfit costing 1,500 V-Bucks (around £10).
There’s also a bundle available, priced at 1,800 V-Bucks, that includes the “Memories of Zaun” Back Bling rabbit, the Piltover Warden Hammer Pickaxe (“Vi’s weapon of choice while her gauntlets are being repaired,” according to a press release). the punch practice emote and the best Piltover loading screen as seen below:
The news comes a few months after League of Legends arcane characters like Jinx were added to PUBG Mobile, Fortnite and Among Us, while the Epic Games Store also added LoL, TFT, Valorant and Legends of Runeterra.
Jinx has already starred in Epic Games’ shooter Fortnite, and now her sister Vi has joined her.
To celebrate Vi’s arrival in Fortnite, Arcane Jinx and her accessories have also returned to the Fortnite Item Shop.
These include the Arcane Jinx outfit, Jinx’s dream monkey back bling, the Pow Pow Crusher pickaxe, and the Playground (Instrumental) Lobby Track from the Arcane Original Soundtrack.
The Arcane Jinx Bundle contains all of these items, along with the Jinxed Spray, Wreaking Havoc Loading Screen, and Katchoo! loading screen.
