Nick Fury Is the Latest Marvel Character to Join Fortnite
November 26, 2021
While it may not be Samuel L. Jackson (yet!), Marvel's Nick Fury has arrived in Fortnite as part of a S.H.I.E.L.D. Set in the game's Item Shop.
Announced by The Fortnite Team, Nick Fury – the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. – has sneaked onto Fortnite's Island to "root out Cube corruption."
Alongside the Nick Fury Outfit, fans will also be able to pick up other Marvel-themed items in the Item Shop, including the F.I.E.L.D. Pack Back Bling. The full list of items, with their official descriptions from Fortnite, are as follows;
- F.I.E.L.D. Pack Back Bling – Just the thing for Front-line Infiltration, Espionage, and Long-term Deployment.
- Director's Scythe Pickaxe – Has sliced through many armored hulls.
- First-Strike Infiltration Glider – Lets out a blue flame and emblazoned with S.H.I.E.L.D.’s logo.
Players have the option to purchase the Outfit (which comes with the Back Bling), Pickaxe, and Glider individually or as a complete set in the Nick Fury Bundle. Those who opt for the bundle will also unlock the Quinjets in Flight Loading Screen.
Fury arrives just as Fortnite's Chapter 2 is set to come to a close. This ending will see players facing off against The Cube Queen in a one-time-only in-game event called "The End."
