With the Loki Disney+ show currently proving highly popular it’s no surprise to see the God of Mischief finally turn up in Fortnite, following in the footsteps of many other Marvel characters.
There’s still no exact date for when he’ll be available, just some time in July, but since Epic Games are now teasing him via Twitter it’s going to be just a matter of days now.
The official image reveals his sceptre-shaped pickaxe but it’s not yet clear if he’ll have any backbling or emotes as well, but he probably will.
How to get the Loki skin in Fortnite
Unlike most skins Loki won’t be obtained through the battle pass or via completing quests, as instead you’ll have to join the Fortnite Crew subscription service.
The Fortnite Crew costs £9.99 a month and includes the current battle pass and 1,000 V-Bucks (about £8).
It’s possible Loki might be available via other means later on but for now it seems the only way to get him is by signing up to Fortnite Crew.
As you can see, Loki looks a lot like he does in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but that’s not always the case for Marvel superheroes, with Thor based more on the comics – as well as other characters, like She-Hulk and Dr Doom, that haven’t been in the movies yet.
That leaves the option open in the future to create additional skins based on different looks for each character, once all the most famous ones have had at least one go.
