The John Wick outfit was previously available for a limited time during the John Wick x Fortnite event, revolving around the John Wick Chapter 3 movie's hyped release. The outfit was last seen in the Item Shop on October 11th, 2020.

More recently, a brand new Peely skin was also introduced for Fortnite Season 6. Peely went from being a happy-go-lucky banana to commanding Rome's legions. He will now be known as Potassius Peels.

Why is collaboration good for Fortnite Season 6?

Fortnite has raised the bar this season when it comes to collaborations. Given the announcement of an official collab between DC and Epic to create comic books, Fortnite Season 6 is sure to surpass previous seasons and set the bar high for future game variations.

In a recent interview, Donald Mustard, Chief Creative Officer for Epic Games, spoke about how Zero Point would eventually become a meeting point of different universes. This would introduce characters like Batman to the game. Mustard further stated that,

"I knew, ultimately, that a big part of the story we would tell is these overlapping realities. It's about the Zero Point in and what that is and why that is, and how it tethers reality together. I knew the only way to do that right was to somehow convince all these other people to come to play with us, to come to play in our fictional universe."

While many players feel that excessive collaboration is ruining the game, Fortnite Season 6 is set to introduce more DC superhero skins. Even football superstar Neymar Jr. will be featured in the game.

Epic Games continues to mold the world of Fortnite into something unique. Developers are using Zero Point as the entry to keep introducing characters from pop culture catelog. With Fortnite Season 6 in full swing, players can expect many more surprises in the coming weeks.
