Midas is one of the most prominent lore characters in all of Fortnite and is looking to make an impressive return in Chapter 2 Season 8.
Before being cast out of the battle royale island in Fortnite, Midas was on top of the world. His golden touch and an army to to control the island was all this devious villain ever needed.
Clearly, things haven't gone his way multiple times, but that doesn't seem to have stopped this major baddie. In a new Fortnite Crew set called The First Shadows, Midas' minions are available for players to claim and use.

The First Shadows set will be taking over Fortnite Crew for the next three months. The following skins will be available to Fortnite Crew members from September through November:
