Epic Games has officially released the Black Panther and Captain Marvel skin for its popular battle royale game, Fortnite.
Epic had hinted toward Black Panther’s eventual arrival with the release of the Wakandan salute emote Monday Morning.
The CGI clip features fellow Marvel superheroes like Captain America, Iron Man and Black Widow greeting Black Panther with the Wakandan salute, although no in-game footage of the skin was showcased.
During Fortnite’s last season, which was Marvel-themed, a large statue of a black panther appeared on the map. And players could find a Black Panther superpower, though a tie-in Black Panther skin never appeared in Fortnite’s in-game store.
It seems possible that a Black Panther skin was intended to be released last season. But was postponed following the death of Chadwick Boseman, who played the superhero in the 2018 film, in August.
Marvel is planning a Black Panther sequel, which is set to debut in 2022, but will not recast Boseman’s character for the movie.
All three skins were leaked late last week by Fortnite data miners ShiinaBR and Guille_GAG, who also revealed that a skin based on DC’s Green Arrow will be added to the game through the January Fortnite Crew pack.
Epic Games paid tribute to actor Chadwick Boseman – who portrayed the Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – in September with the unveiling of a Black Panther monument in September following the actor’s passing.
Fortnite’s newest season is focused primarily around different bounty hunters joining the in-game universe.
While Epic created a number of original characters for this season’s battle pass, you can also play as the Mandalorian, and even have Baby Yoda float next to you in his capsule if you reach level 100.
