Kratos from God of War is now available as a skin in Fornite. Epic Games and Sony announced this publicly with a trailer. The PlayStation icon can be purchased in the Battle Royale’s shop until December 10th, 2020. With the “oath breaker set” available as an additional option, you can also get the leviathan ax as a pickaxe, Mimir as a back accessory and the guard’s shield as a hang-glider. There is also a free skin variant of Kratos for PS5 players.
Kratos originally appeared as a Fortnite leak on Twitter. Now the Spartan from God of War is available to everyone as a skin in the Battle Royale shooter. You have until December 10th to purchase this skin in the item shop. According to PlayStation Blog this is the start of the “Gaming Legends” series in Fortnite. It looks like we can count on more icons from the world of video games in the game’s new season. Master Chief from Halo for example wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Kratos is available in the shop either individually or as a complete package with the “oath breaker set”. From the latter one fans can look forward to the Leviathan ax as a pickaxe, Mimir as a back accessory and the guard’s shield as a hang-glider.
If you play a Fortnite game on the PS5 after purchasing Kratos, you will also receive the golden skin variant Armored Kratos” at no additional cost. The armor can be seen for a brief moment at the end of the trailer.
Also, the God of War hero isn’t exclusive to PlayStaton users. Turns out anyone can purchese the skin, from their platform of choice. A surprising news, considering we’re dealing with Sony here. The same company that blocked the option of crossplay in Fortnite back in 2018. However we appreciate the thought.
