Avengers Assemble! Captain America is now in Fortnite
You can buy the Captain America skin from the Fortnite store and you get the iconic shield with it. The shield can be used in the game and is not just a costume prop.
Epic Games announced today that the Captain America skin is now available on Fortnite. This is the latest comic-themed skin to be added on Fortnite.
The Captain America skin will cost you 2,000 V bucks (which is about $20) on the Fortnite in-game store. If you buy the skin you also get Captain America's iconic vibranium shield. And the shield is not just a costume prop, you can wear it on your back and use it as a pickaxe in the game.
This is not the first time Captain America's shield has turned up on Fortnite. It has appeared in the game before last year as a special item in the limited time Avengers-themed mode. However, you could not buy it at that point in time.
With the introduction of Captain America, there is also a new captain-themed fireworks emote for sale which costs 300 V bucks.
Fortnite is known for bringing skins in the game that are based on popular comic book characters. Deadpool was a part of last season's battle pass, Aquaman will be coming in as a part of this season's battle pass.
There was also Black Widow and Star Lord skins which were a part of last year's Avengers crossover and X-Force skins from last season. Epic Games also has skins from the DC-verse like Batman, Catwoman and Harley Quinn.
