The Marvel crossover in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 4 seems far from over as leaks show new Black Panther and Captain Marvel cosmetics coming in Season 5.
Epic Games recently updated Fortnite with a bunch of new inclusions in Patch v15.10. While several guns, new LTMs and new Exotic weapons were added to the game, some of the Marvel content has returned from Season 4.
This includes three new Marvel outfits, along with a bunch of new Challenges added to Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. Indeed, this is a brilliant opportunity for players to gather their favorite superhero outfits and some XP in Fortnite.
Epic Games about to add Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Taskmaster in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5
According to data miners @HYPEX, @ShiinaBR and @Guille_GAG, three new Marvel-based cosmetics are coming soon in Fortnite.
All the three skins, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Taskmaster, will be a part of the "Marvel: Royalty & Warriors Pack." Although the price for the outfit pack has not been disclosed, it is going to become extremely popular.
Players have started collecting skins from every season, and these three will make solid additions to the collection. This indicates that the Marvel x Fortnite collaboration still has a long way to go.
There are several instances where Donald Mustard, creative director at Epic Games, mentioned how the Galactus event was just the beginning of the Marvel x Fortnite collaboration.
Thus, it is entirely plausible to expect some more Marvel skins coming to Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. Epic Games have even included Taskmaster, the main antagonist in the upcoming Black Widow movie. However, the highlight of the Marvel: Royalty Warrior Pack remains Black Panther.
Black Panther is one of the most iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Thus it is fitting that Fortnite is basing a bunch of new Challenges after him.
These Challenges will allow players to obtain massive amounts of XP to rank up. Similarly, some of these challenges are interlinked, and they lead to new Exotic Weapons in the game.
Thus, it is best if players complete the Wakanda Forever Challenges with a squad. The "Wakanda Forever" emote has also been added to Fortnite, paying homage to the late Chadwick Boseman.
The Wakanda Forever Challenges will help players earn free rewards as well. Players will have to complete the following in order to obtain the emote and the XP.
- Visit different Snowmando outposts (1)
- Deal Damage with Lever Action Rifle (100)
- Play Matches (10)
- Complete all Black Panther Quests (3)
- Outlast Opponents (500)
- Play Duo or Squad Matches(5)
Subsequently, HYPEX suggested that Black Panther has an NPC tag and is likely to join the game as one. In contrast, Captain Marvel and Taskmaster might get added only as outfits.
With the Christmas lobby and the winter theme finally set, Epic Games is looking to celebrate Winterfest with these latest inclusions. Hopefully, players will get to see more Marvel characters being added to Chapter 2 - Season 5.Published 16 Dec 2020, 00:19 IST
