Last month it was rumored that Spider-Man would be joining the ranks of popular online Battle Royale shooter Fortnite by Epic Games. The addition of the skin was said to cross-promote the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home film releasing on December 17th. Well now that rumor has been confirmed as the popular web-slinger joins the action as part of the Chapter 3 event.
Spider-Man’s inclusion has been anticipated for quite some time now. Back in 2018 was the first appearance of Marvel characters in the game with Thanos appearing to promote Avengers: Infinity War. In 2020 more Marvel characters were added as part of Chapter 2, Season 4. Characters such as Iron Man, Wolverine, Storm, Thor, She-Hulk and more all joined in on the action.
Other new Spider-themed additions include a web-swing for your character and a new area themed after the Daily Bugle straight out of the comics.
Spider-Man isn’t the only guest in Fortnite’s Chapter 3. You also have Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joining the action.
Fortnite is considered to be one of the biggest online multiplayer shooter games in the world. With millions of players and a huge esports crowd with cash pool prizes worth millions. Multiple individuals such as Richard “Ninja” Blevins and Herschel “Guy” Beahm have made prominent careers off of playing this game via gaming livestreams.
The continued inclusion of other popular brands and IPs doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Franchises such as DC Comics, The Walking Dead, Street Fighter, Alien, Ghostbusters, Halo and many more all crossover in one massive battleground. With so many IPs gathered in one place you’d think you were in Super Smash Bros.
Fortnite Chapter 3 releases on December 7th for all to enjoy the new Marvel-themed content. Maybe in the future we’ll get to see costumes for characters like Venom, Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus and many more.
