A collection of leaks and teasers suggests Kratos, or extra precisely his pores and skin, is coming to Fortnite. He’ll be part of the likes of The Mandalorian’s Mando, Child Yoda, and different hunters throughout a number of realities.

The advert has reportedly been pulled down from the shop, however not earlier than the beneath picture made the rounds on social media:
Not too lengthy after the picture made waves, the official PlayStation Twitter account tweeted an in-game audio log from Jonesy, who references a man that “has vanquished a number of gods along with his naked arms in a match of uncontrollable rage”. Except Asura’s Wrath is making a shock comeback, it appears all however confirmed that we’ll get to see Kratos throw down alongside/towards a Mandalorian, which inserts the brand new season’s theme of spotlighting hunters.
Since Kratos hasn’t been formally unveiled but, we nonetheless don’t know if he’ll be a PlayStation-exclusive pores and skin (in all probability), when he’s coming, or what number of V-bucks he’ll price. Now that the cat’s out of the bag, I’d count on that data to come back ahead of later. The one query now could be who else will drop into the sport? Samus? Grasp Chief? Is Fortnite simply Smash Bros. now? I’m 100% on board for that, truly.
