While it may not be Samuel L. Jackson (yet!), Marvel’s Nick Fury has arrived in Fortnite as part of a S.H.I.E.L.D. Set in the game’s Item Shop.
Announced by The Fortnite Team, Nick Fury – the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. – has sneaked onto Fortnite’s Island to “root out Cube corruption.”
Alongside the Nick Fury Outfit, fans will also be able to pick up other Marvel-themed items in the Item Shop, including the F.I.E.L.D. Pack Back Bling. The full list of items, with their official descriptions from Fortnite, are as follows;
- F.I.E.L.D. Pack Back Bling – Just the thing for Front-line Infiltration, Espionage, and Long-term Deployment.
- Director’s Scythe Pickaxe – Has sliced through many armored hulls.
- First-Strike Infiltration Glider – Lets out a blue flame and emblazoned with S.H.I.E.L.D.’s logo.
Players have the option to purchase the Outfit (which comes with the Back Bling), Pickaxe, and Glider individually or as a complete set in the Nick Fury Bundle. Those who opt for the bundle will also unlock the Quinjets in Flight Loading Screen.
Fury arrives just as Fortnite’s Chapter 2 is set to come to a close. This ending will see players facing off against The Cube Queen in a one-time-only in-game event called “The End.”
