As anticipated, Fortnite has just added the new Marvel Royalty and Warriors Pack with three new skins and objects belonging to the Marvel universe. As you know, the great crossover with Marvel is over, but despite this, players will still have the opportunity to play other characters belonging to the famous comic universe, and in this specific case, we are talking about Black Panther, Captain Marvel or Taskmaster.
The three characters will be accessible as part of the aforementioned Marvel Royalty and Warriors Pack for $24.99. Epic had hinted at the eventual arrival of Black Panther with the release of the Wakandan Salute emote.
The salute has become particularly iconic in mass popular culture especially thanks to the 2018 film dedicated to the character, which was able to gross $1.35 billion at the box office, of which $700.4 million nationally.
The rightful king of Wakanda has come to the Island.

During the last season of Fortnite, which was Marvel-themed, a large statue of a black panther appeared on the map, and players were able to find a superpower of the famous superhero. It seems that a Black Panther skin was set to be released last season, but was delayed following the death of Chadwick Boseman, who played the character in both the 2018 film and some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
Fortnite’s new season focuses primarily on different bounty hunters joining the game universe. While Epic has created a number of original characters for this season’s battle pass, it will also be possible to play as illustrious characters such as the Mandalorian with Baby Yoda by your side (if you reach level 100).
Epic this season also introduced Kratos from God of War, Master Chief from Halo and two characters from The Walking Dead.
