Nearly synced with the item shop, the Fortnite Twitter account released announced the Captain America character skin. Fortnite’s take on Captain America features much of what Marvel Comics fans are undoubtedly familiar with seeing. He is sporting the typical Steve Rogers garb, seen time and time again in movies, video games and comics. One of the cool aspects of Captain America’s skin is that all purchases include the character’s shield both as back bling and as a pick-ax. It adds more value to an ongoing partnership between Fortnite and Marvel.

Epic Games Continues String of Exciting Partnerships
Fortnite has never shied away from its popularity as a video game. Since its release back in 2017, players have had the opportunity to acquire some exciting skins. Epic Games have featured skins for Batman, John Wick, Stranger Things, Borderlands, Star Wars and even the NFL. Captain America marks the fourth Marvel character to appear in Fortnite after Black Widow, Starlord and Deadpool. DC Comics character Aquaman is the featured skin in Chapter 2 - Season 3’s Battle Pass. Let’s not forget about the Fortnite x Avengers End Game collaboration, which gifted the players the ability to control Thanos.
