Epic Games shared the news through a new trailer on YouTube that shows off the Predator skin. The skin is now available in the game as a Battle Pass exclusive, but players can also unlock additional Predator-themed cosmetics by completing Jungle Hunter quests. These unlockables include the Predator outfit with a built-in Bio-helmet online emote, a unique Heat Vision Hunter spray, a banner and an emoticon.
Predator now joins an exciting roster of tie-in characters in Fortnite, which include skins based on Star Wars’ The Mandalorian, Kratos from God Of War, Master Chief from Halo and DC’s Green Arrow.
A recent leak from a data miner has also led gamers to believe that the next skin that will be introduced into Fortnite will be Tomb Raider protagonist Lara Croft. While the actual skin has not been revealed, the leak noted that a female character codenamed Typhoon has been added into the game’s code.
A cryptic tweet from the official Tomb Raider account on Twitter depicting a pickaxe an item synonymous with Fortnite has also fuelled the rumours, with players interpreting it as a teaser for Croft’s arrival in the popular battle royale game.
