Amazing Captain America is now in Fortnite. Marvel fans, it’s time to assemble in Fortnite this week in honor of the arrival of the First Avenger – Captain America!
Starting today, we witness the mighty arrival of Captain America to the Item Shop. Armed with his indestructible shield and iron will, Super-Soldier Steve Rogers won’t give up until the mission is finished.
A Captain America skin is now available in Fortnite, Epic Games announced today. He’s the latest comic-themed skin to be added to the popular free-to-play battle royale game.
Captain America costs 2,000 V-bucks (about $20) from the Fortnite in-game store. If you buy the skin, you’ll also get Captain America’s iconic shield, which isn’t just cosmetic — you’ll be able to wear it on your back and use it as a pickaxe in-game. Captain America’s shield has actually already appeared in the game before — you could wield it last year as a special item in a limited time Avengers-themed mode, but you weren’t able to buy it to wear whenever you wanted.
There’s also a new Captain America-themed fireworks emote for sale, which could be fun to deploy if you choose to celebrate Independence Day on the Fortnite island this weekend. The emote costs 300 V-bucks.
