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.

Is Midas returning to Fortnite?

@FortniteGame fortnite pls feed us with another midas skin

Whether from behind the scenes or at the forefront, Midas always seems to be pulling the strings. While he is not included in the First Shadows set, fans are surely hoping to see him once again.

With his most trusted soldiers returning to the battle royale, it may be just a matter of time before Midas himself is back on the battlefield. This popular character may possibly return as a part of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.
