Here is when you can get the Jack Sparrow Fortnite skin.

A Fortnite x Pirates of the Caribbean (POTC) is imminent, following leaks and in-game teasers by Epic Games. The collaboration will occur during the All Sweat Summer event and feature cosmetic items, a new Mythic item, a point of interest (POI), and more. However, the headlining act lies within the debut of Captain Jack Sparrow in Fortnite. This article explains when Jack Sparrow is coming to Fortnite and what you can expect from the collaboration.

When is Jack Sparrow coming to Fortnite? Answered

It has been 100% confirmed that Jack Sparrow is coming to Fortnite thanks to Epic Games pulling the trigger on an upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean event pass early. Some players have already purchased the "Cursed Sails Pass." This limited-time mini Battle Pass allows players to unlock various POTC-themed items. One such reward is the man himself, Captain Jack Sparrow.

Those lucky enough to load into Fortnite and purchase the Premium pass have already received the Jack Sparrow skin. However, Epic Games has confirmed that Jack Sparrow will officially be coming to Fortnite on July 19. This news arrived via the Fortnite Status account on X. The post explains that anyone who purchased the Premium Cursed Sails Pass must wait to progress through the tiers, but all buyers will retain the Jack Sparrow skin.

The early release was evidently a mistake, as you can no longer purchase the Cursed Sails Pass. Regardless, only a few players unlocked Jack Sparrow early, and all others must wait until July 19.

What else does the Cursed Sails Pass include?

Fortnite's mini Battle Passes have become seasonal, with previous offerings revolving around Star Wars, Avatar, TMNT, and more. Each offers a Free and Premium Track with several unlockable rewards ranging from Pickaxes to Loading Screens. In this case, you must purchase the Premium Cursed Sails Pass to unlock the Jack Sparrow skin.

As shown above, other items include Level Up Tokens, Emotes, and Back Blings. The Premium Track costs 1,000 V-Bucks, which instantly gets you the Jack Sparrow skin and allows you to unlock the other rewards. The Cursed Sails Pass goes live for all players on July 19 alongside other in-game Pirate-themed elements.
