It’s Official, Assassin’s Creed Is Coming To Fortnite
Epic continues its quest to become a kind of digital Funko-Pop warehouse, announcing that two new Assassin’s Creed-themed costumes are coming to Fortnite (opens in new tab).
Yes, starting tomorrow, players will be able to play two of Ubisoft’s best characters in Epic’s Battle Royale – Assassin’s Creed II’s Ezio Auditore da Firenze exposure) (opens in new tab) Data Miner) or Eivor Varinsdottir from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Both skins come in “hooded” and “unhooded” variants that can be changed in Fortnite’s locker, while each skin comes with some interesting Assassin’s Creed-related extras. The Eivor set includes Ezio’s Hidden Blade Pickaxe, which is exclusive to Ezio and can be equipped by performing Oufit’s built-in Assassin Strike
expression. Meanwhile, Eivor’s outfit bundles Eivor’s shielded back with bling bling, as well as a pair of two-handed axes known as Raven Clan Pickaxe. These are tied with Eivor’s Viking War Cry emote, where Eivor strikes her shield with an axe.
Finally, Eivor also has a bonus item, the Wolf-Kissed Longboat Glider, which can be purchased separately from the Item Shop or as part of the story in the Animus bundle, which will give you the outfit and all associated gear, as well as these additional items:
- wolf kiss spray
- Wrath of Aivor loading screen
- crow clan emoticon
- Stories from the Animus Banner
By the way, “wolf kiss spray” is also how wolves mark their territory in the real world.
Both skins will go on sale tomorrow at 8pm ET or 1am BST. It’s not a completely inappropriate time to drop Assassin’s Creed skins, though they really should have unexpectedly appeared on us at 4am.
