A Captain America skin is now available in Fortnite, Epic games announced today. He is the latest comic themed skin to be added to the popular free royale Battle Royale game.
Captain America costs $ 2,000 V (about $ 20) of the Fortnite in-game store. Buying the skin also gives you the iconic Captain America shield, which is not only cosmetic – you can wear it on your back and use it as an in-game pickaxe. Captain America’s shield actually appeared earlier in the game – you could use it as a special item in a temporary Avengers-themed mode last year, but you couldn’t buy it to wear whenever you wanted.
There is also a new Captain America themed fireworks emote that can be fun to use if you choose to celebrate Independence Day at the Fortnite island this weekend. The emote costs $ 300 USD.
Fortnite has a long history of offering skins based on popular cartoon characters. Deadpool was available as part of last season’s Battle Pass, and Aquaman will eventually be playable as part of this season’s Battle Pass. Epic Games also sold Marvel’s Black Widow and Star-Lord as part of last year Avengers crossover and X-Force skins last season. Epic has also offered DC skins including Harley Quinn, Batman and Catwoman.
