21 April, 2022 Epic Games has confirmed and released a Moon Knight Fortnite skin for a limited time. The copy of this article has been updated to reflect that.
A new Fortnite skin based on Marvel’s Moon Knight character has been revealed and released. It’s one of the cheaper collaborative skins Fortnite have released, but that doesn’t mean it skimps on quality. Based on Oscar Isaac’s recent stint as Marc Spector… Well, Steven Grant… Or someone else, on Disney Plus, this Moon Knight skin features two variant appearances.
The possibility that Epic Games would release a Fortnite Moon Knight skin was first brought to light by NotPaloleaks, and has subsequently been reiterated by popular Fortnite leak accounts ShiinaBR and iFireMonkey. NotPalo is confident that a Moon Knight collaboration could be coming to Fortnite in the near future due to the fact that several Fortnite content creators were invited to the Moon Knight premiere event earlier this week.
Why is this important? Well, in the past, when Fortnite content creators have been invited to a premiere event, a collaboration has been released in-game not-long after.
Specifically, Fortnite content creators were invited to the Dune movie premiere in October 2021 ahead of the film’s release. As you may know, a Dune skin set with outfits based on Paul Atreides and Chani was released in-time with the theatrical release of Denis Villeneuve’s epic.
But, we’re here to check out the Fortnite Moon Knight skin. Here’s the skin in all it’s glory below:
