Twitch streamer TheGrefg has broken the record for most concurrent Twitch viewers during a stream to reveal his Fortnite skin. The Spanish streamer quickly passed the 700,000 concurrent viewer record, before setting the record for most all-time viewers on the platform at more than 2.4 million. It's a massive number, and it shows just how big the streamer is, and how big Fortnite remains on the streaming platform! The upcoming skin is part of Fortnite's Icon Series, which has previously seen skins based on streamers like Tyler "Ninja" Blevins. As of this writing, a release date and pricing for the skin based on TheGrefg has not been announced by Epic Games.
The previous concurrent viewer record for an individual streamer was set by Ninja way back in 2018, when he streamed Fortnite alongside Drake to a peak of 635,000 viewers. Esports organisation Eleague had previously held the overall record for Twitch viewers, with a peak of over 1.1 million viewers also set in 2018. (The PlayStation 5 reveal also reached over 1 million viewers in 2020, for comparison.)
Fortnite’s Icon Series skins are reserved for the game’s top creators, which include people like Kathleen “Loserfruit” Belsten and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. As of this writing, there are only seven outfits in the series; Martínez’s would be the 8th.
How to get the Grefg Fortnite skin
According to TheGrefg (with the help of some data miners like iFireMonkey and HYPEX), TheGrefg skin will be hitting the item shop on January 16 at 7 PM PST, and will cost somewhere in the ballpark of 2,000 - 3,000 V-bucks.
If you want to get TheGrefg's skin before it hits the item shop, Epic is throwing together a "The Floor is Lava" tournament from January 14 - 15. Winners will be able to acquire the skin a day before others. Read this for a full explanation of how to get TheGrefg Fortnite skin, and keep an eye out for an announcement from Epic on the exact start time.
Last year saw a number of major additions and events in Fortnite. From in-game concerts, to skins based on the biggest heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe, 2020 was a very big year for Epic Games. The year ended with the addition of The Mandalorian's Din Djarin, God of War's Kratos, and Halo's Master Chief, which were all added as part of Chapter 2 Season 5. With all of that content, 2020 will be to top. Epic Games is clearly starting off 2021 on an impressive note, however. Considering how many viewers tuned in to watch TheGrefg's skin reveal, it seems that this skin could be the game's next big thing.
