Marvel characters have appeared in Fortnite before. Deadpool and his X-Force compatriots are playable, as well as Captain America, and updates based on Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame became available during those films’ theatrical releases. Korg and Miek were even spotted playing the game during Endgame.
The Nexus War update is inspired by Cates and artist Nic Klein’s run on Thor, taking place during Part 4 of “The Devourer King” story arc, which saw Galactus transforming the God of Thunder into his newest herald in order to stop the universe-destroying Black Winter. Cates also wrote the Fortnite x Marvel: Nexus War one-shot, which officially canonizes the game’s events. In addition to Thor, several Marvel heroes, including Iron Man and Wolverine will be available as playable characters.
Developed by Epic Games, Fortnite is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
