Street Fighter’s Cammy and Guile join Fortnite Battle Royale.
It’s become redundant at this point to call Fortnite Battle Royale the most inclusive game in history. That notion took another step further today with the announcement that two more Street Fighter characters would become playable skins. Guile and Cammy will join Ryu and Chun-Li in the latest collaboration between the iconic Battle Royale game and the historical fighting game. It continues a trend of Fortnite’s growing meta-verse that includes other popular video games, tv shows and movies, and Epic has shown no signs of stopping.
The news came to fans via Twitter and an official Street Fighter stream, where Twitch Gaming unveiled new information about Street Fighter 5 Season 5 and that Cammy and Guile would crossover into the world of Fortnite. Both skins come with a variety of styles, two exclusive emotes and some other in-game accessories.
It’s merely the latest in a long line of Epic Games’ barrier-breaking deals. Cammy and Guile join Ryu and Chun-Li and many other video game characters such as Master Chief and Lara Croft in Fortnite.
Those looking to acquire the two new Street Fighter characters should mark Saturday, August 7 on their calendars. Cammy and Guile will be available for purchase at 8 PM EDT when Fortnite’s Item Shop resets. Epic is also hosting a Cammy Cup duos tournament on August 5 for players to unlock the set early and free with a high placement. We’ll provide more details on that later.
Here is everything available for players to purchase:
Stay tuned for more and get psyched for yet another pair of iconic video game characters to enter into Fortnite Battle Royale. For more information, refer to Epic’s blog post.
