In a recent episode of the hit video game Fortnites, players are shown playing the game with a skin code.
The code unlocks various skins and skins are used in the game’s multiplayer mode.
However, this code also provides access to skins that are locked behind a virtual lockbox, which makes them impossible to unlock.
“It’s been a big part of the community since day one.
The skins have been an integral part of that,” said Justin Johnson, CEO of Fortnits Interactive, the studio behind Fortnited.
“And the community has been really supportive of us as we worked on this.
So it was very natural for us to want to take this on and really give it the proper treatment.”
Johnson says the Fortnition skin codes are intended to help players unlock skin skins through other ways than skins codes.
“It’s really the same thing as unlocking skins in the other games that we make, so it’s a little different,” he said.
“There’s a ton of skins that you unlock through the other stuff in the games.
And so, it’s not like, ‘Hey, we’ve got these skin codes and we want to give them out to everyone who’s buying the game.
So they can just buy these skins through those skins codes.'”
Johnson says Fortnitions team was working on creating a solution to solve the skin codes issue, but decided to keep the codes secret to prevent the problem from spreading.
“We’ve been doing our own little bit of work on this, and it’s very similar to what you would expect for a lot of other people’s skin codes,” he added.
“You can unlock skins with the skins codes and the skins that come with it, and that’s what we were trying to do here.”
Johnson believes that skin codes may be the most popular way to unlock skins in Fortnities, given the popularity of skins in other games.
“If you want to unlock all the skins in a game, you’re going to have to unlock them with skin codes.
And the fact that the skins are so popular and the people who are buying the skins and the community have been supportive of them has helped them to keep us on the right track,” he explained.
“So I think it’s just a great solution that people are using.”
According to Johnson, the FortNite team hopes that skin code unlocking will be a feature that people use more frequently.
“I think that’s something we’re going the extra mile on,” he told the CBC.
“People will use it more, and we’re hoping that it’s something that people actually use more.”
