At this point there’s increasingly few Marvel, or DC, superheroes that haven’t been in Fortnite already but one that’s somehow slipped the net (probably because he doesn’t have any powers or iconic weaponry) is Nick Fury.
He’s in the game now though, with a look that, in keeping with the other Marvel additions, is reminiscent of Samuel L. Jackson without actually being him officially.
The skin is available right now from the Fortnite shop and costs 1,500 V-Bucks (roughly £11), or you can pay 2,000 V-Bucks (roughly £15) to get the skin and all the associated cosmetics – plus the unique loading screen below.
Those prices are eye-watering but par for the course, although Director Fury’s cosmetics are pretty boring, since there’s not really anything to work with.
All you get is some back bling with the outfit, plus there’s a Director’s Scythe Pickaxe and a First-Strike Infiltration Glider, aka a glider with the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo on it.
What makes the Nick Fury skin notable though is that it’s the last one of not only Season 8 but the whole of Fortnite: Chapter 2.
Whether the choice of Nick Fury is meant as an indication of things to come for Chapter 3, or if he’s just a random addition, is not clear but Chapter 2 already had a whole Marvel themed season and it wouldn’t be a surprise if there was another.
At the moment though everything to do with Chapter 3 is a mystery with ‘The End’ event scheduled for Saturday, December 4 at 9pm GMT.
