As part of the ongoing Halloween event, Fortnitemares, Epic has added a Fortnite Rick Grimes skin to the game’s Item Shop today. Only a year after his Alexandrian allies Daryl and Michonne made their Fortnite debuts, the former Walking Dead protagonist will now trade walkers for loopers in Fortnite.
Players can get his first Fortnite skin right now, or you can get the entire set. A glider, back bling, and a pickaxe are all included in the Fortnite Rick Grimes bundle.
Each is inspired by the show’s plot, such as the bag of guns Rick hides outside Terminus before being captured in the railyard, or the satellite that falls to Earth in a season 10 episode, albeit curiously after actor Andrew Lincoln’s departure from the show.
Rumours of a Rick Grimes Fortnite skin first surfaced over the summer, before Epic teased it for the first time earlier this week, in conjunction with the release of Fortnitemares 2021. For a limited time, the leading man can be found in the Item Shop alongside his former sidekicks, Daryl and Mchonne. I’ll ask the same question that the comics do: Where is Negan?
Epic will be releasing new Fortnitemares skins every day in October. Players who have been wanting to add some of the game’s creepier characters to their locker now’s would be a good time. More horror crossovers are likely later this month.
For more Fortnite, this week, don’t miss out on another 300,000 XP from the Raven and Nitehare quests.
