Fortnite: Thor’s Hammer Touches Ground Ahead Of New Season

Thor’s hammer is now available to see in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is officially crossing over into the world of Marvel Comics. This partnership has taken flight before with the Avengers: Endgame Limited Time Mode back in 2019. Additionally, Fortnite has not been shy about releasing Marvel-themed character skins. Captain America, Black Widow and Starlord have all earned their rightful place in Fortnite's expansive item shop catalog. Deadpool also appeared in Chapter 2 – Season 2, where he claimed The Yacht location from Meowscles. Deadpool was also one of last season's primary selling points.

Epic Games is now doubling down on the Marvel crossover for the upcoming Chapter 2 – Season 4 release. Teaser began much earlier in Season 3, with famous Fortnite leakers hinting that Marvel will take center stage in Season 4. Just three days ago, we released an article detailing what we know so far about Fortnite's newest season. Since then, a lot has changed, and we have all the updates.
