On July 25, 2017, Fortnite released a Founder's Pack, a version of the game that included both the smash hit Battle Royale as well as the PvE mode "Save the World."  Part of the appeal of the pack was the two exclusive player skins it'd come with, but Epic never actually released that content – until now. 

Epic tweeted that the skins would finally be releasing, alongside the game's 5.10 update.

 

Our Take
The skins' aesthetic could be charitably described as vintage, or more critically as outdated. They represent the game's look pre-Thanos and rocket launch, which is to say, a little boring. Still, it's good that the developer followed through on its promise.
