Fry up some chimichangas and knock down that fourth wall, because Deadpool is coming to Fortnite as part of the new Chapter 2, Season 2 update. The Merc with a Mouth is the latest Marvel character to come to the game, though he will probably not be as devastating as Thanos.
Deadpool was revealed in the game’s Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 2 Battle Pass trailer, popping onto the screen in his usual goofy fashion. He’s also seen bathing in a pile of V-Bucks; the Battle Pass still costs 950 V-Bucks or about $9.50. Fully leveling up the Battle Pass will earn you a total of 1,500 V-Bucks, which should more than cover the cost of Season 3’s Battle Pass.
The latest update also added weekly challenges from Deadpool, including one to find a letter he sent to Epic Games. It’s fitting with the character’s self-aware persona, as he has routinely referenced when he was in a comic book or movie before.
Deadpool is a skin rather than a special character event like with Thanos, so it’s entirely cosmetic. However, it definitely makes us a little more likely to crack stupid jokes and get a little more bold in battle royale mode. You can’t unlock the skin yet, as it requires completely weekly challenges over the course of the Battle Pass, but the wait should come with more themed challenges that have Deadpool inserting himself further into the game.
In January, Ryan Reynolds confirmed that Deadpool 3 is in the works at Marvel Studios. The previous two movies were produced before Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, which had been responsible for Deadpool and X-Men films previously.
