Fortnite has brought in elements from the Marvel universe in the past and this time, with Season 4 Nexus War, it has taken this partnership to the next level. Purchasing the new Battle Pass will give players a chance to unlock character skins such as Iron Man, Doctor Doom, Storm, Mystique, Groot, and She-Hulk. The launch trailer shows Thor summoning all superheroes to the Fortnite Island to fight against fast approaching Galactus. Wolverine may be added as a character skin later in the season.
Players will be able to take up super powers like Doctor Doom's Arcane Gauntlets, Groot's Bramble Shield, Silver Surfer's Board, and more, which will arrive later in the season. There are new locations on the island like Doom's Domain, Sentinel Graveyard, and more. A new weapon called the Stark Industries Energy Rifle will also be added to the game. The developers state that this weapon has a “different benefit depending on how you aim.”
Additionally, Stark Labs Drones surrounding Quinjet landing sites throughout the map can be shot down for powerful weapons and hero abilities. Players can also find out how this Marvel and Fortnite integration came to be by reading the Nexus War: Thor comic by going to the Helicarrier room in-game.
Lastly, players who purchase the Battle Pass can complete special quests of these superheroes to unlock a “built-in emote that reveals the hero or villain within.”
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 Nexus War has started and will last till November 30.
