Fresh off the heels of his Disney Plus show, Marvel’s favorite trickster god is coming to Fortnite as part of the upcoming Crew bundle.
This was actually teased a month ago after some eagle-eyed fans caught a glimpse at what appeared to be Loki and Thor in the background of a loading screen. While that wasn’t an actual confirmation, this latest news certainly is.
It’s fitting that they were seen in the back of the Mecha Cuddle Master announcement because Fortnite confirms in the announcement that Loki did make it to the island through that same portal.
Here’s what we know about the upcoming bundle.
Loki is Confirmed
The official Fortnite Twitter account confirmed Loki would be the next addition to the Crew pack without even showing us the skin.
Of course, it is quite easy to picture Loki in Fortnite considering we’re already getting a good look at him in the Disney Plus show. However, most of Marvel characters that have come to Fortnite are based on their comic book design instead of their movie style.
The exception to this rule so far appears to be Thanos, and Loki has now followed in his footsteps.
The bundle includes a variety of items outside of the skin. Here’s a list of everything you’ll be getting:
- Loki Laufeyson Outfit
- Loki’s Cape Back Bling
- Loki’s Scepter Pickaxe
- Chitauri Chariot Glider
- Loki’s Welcoming Loading Screen
Keep in mind that Crew skins are exclusive, so if you don’t subscribe for the month a particular skin is available, it will be lost forever. Loki will definitely be a popular outfit to have, so we expect to see Crew subscriptions skyrocket for a month at least.
When Does Loki Come Out?
For those of you looking to get Loki, the wait is nearly over. The release of a new Crew pack typically comes the final day of the month when the Item Shop resets.
In this case, it would mean June 30 at 8 p.m. ET. This has since been confirmed by Epic themselves, so the wait for this new bundle won’t be much longer now.
When the Loki bundle is released, this means the Mecha Cuddle Master and all of the contents in the bundle will be removed from the game for good. The sense of exclusivity is a powerful factor when it comes to the Crew pack. Even if you see a skin that looks remotely cool, you might feel pressured to subscribe because you won’t have another chance to get it.
Now the question that remains is whether or not Loki will be joined by his brother Thor. You may remember that Thor was a Battle Pass skin back in Season 4, but that was his comic book skin. Batman is a character who has multiple styles in Fortnite, so why can’t Thor have something similar?
It doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait all that long to find out.
