Epic has updated various item shop pictures with the latest patch. This gives a revamp to the pictures of various skins and emotes in the shop.

The reindeer character Dolph and the Polar Patroller bear icons also get a makeover along with the Globe Shaker to add to the Christmas spirit. A candy cane skin also joins the fight. Watch the animated candy cane run around the map with a weapon in its hand and take others on.

Various classic Fortnite skin icons also got a makeover including regional ski skins as well as soccer player skins. The Stormtrooper skin from Star Wars will also look different in the item shop.

Apart from the skins, various emote icons will also appear differently in the shop. The change in appearance looks like Epic has removed textures from the background of item shop images. The idea behind this might be to make the item shop run smoother on low-end builds.

This makes sense as Epic is trying to cater to a wider audience. Therefore, players with even the minimum specs can get over 30FPS on the game and higher in the lobby.
