The God Of War has finally arrived to hunt prey escaping through the Zero Point in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5.
Kratos, one of the beloved characters in video game history, has been added as a playable character by Epic Games. Their official announcement confirmed that Kratos would indeed be one of the Hunters in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5.

Epic Games have successfully taken another icon from popular culture and added him to Fortnite. Kratos comes with a bundle of his own, and the items will be familiar to fans of the God Of War PlayStation series.
The outfit and the back bling can be purchased for 1,500 V-Bucks. Players can also choose to buy the Oathbreaker set that comes with a Kratos outfit, a glider, a Mimir-head Back Bling, and a Legendary Pickaxe for 2,200 V-Bucks.
The Pickaxe is undoubtedly the highlight of this set in Fortnite. It comes with an in-built emote that freezes the Leviathan Axe for a brief moment.
