Let’s Get the Party Started

Black Tie Formal

Anniversaries only come once a year, so suit up for the party in the updated Item Shop! For only 100 Credits, players can slip into the new Fancy Formal Fennec Decal. Inspired by the previous Octane and Dominus tux Decals, this bespoke look will have you celebrating in style.
