Fortnite developer Epic Games has dropped the details on the popular battle royale game’s new v20.30 update, including the upcoming Battle for Tilted Towers, Star Wars-themed May the 4th goodies, the return of the Choppa, and a spicy Drum Shotgun buff. However, dataminers have been hard at work picking apart the patch, and appear to have also discovered an upcoming skin for a Marvel favourite – Scarlet Witch.
That’s right, Wanda Maximoff herself is reportedly punching a ticket aboard the battle bus, as images showing her off in-game have surfaced online. Scarlet Witch is set to play a major part in Marvel’s latest addition to its cinematic universe, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which opens in theatres this week.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2’s Marvel collaboration has already introduced both Doctor Strange himself, as well as Spider-Man’s Prowler to the game. With Wanda now supposedly set to join her MCU compadres, we can’t wait to rack up the wins with one of the franchise’s most powerful characters.
You can check out the screenshots of the Fortnite Scarlet Witch skin in creative mode – courtesy of ‘Zatheo’ – below. So far, we only have snaps of Wanda from behind, though we’re sure it won’t be long before she can be seen in all her glory in the store.
