Epic previously teased the idea of Marvel’s Loki in Fortnite, but today the developer-publisher has confirmed it. The god of mischief will be the centerpiece of the July Crew Pack. Subscribers will be able to start playing as Loki in Fortnite on July 1, and the complete cosmetic set will likely include more accessories yet to be revealed.
It was back in May when Epic first hinted at Loki descending onto the island of Apollo, sneaking him into the background of a loading screen that Fortnite Crew subscribers received as a bonus item for May. At the time, the focus of the loading screen image was Mecha Cuddle Master, but eagle-eyed fans noticed the unmistakable helmet of the Norse god in the background. Some speculated that Loki would come included in the Season 7 Battle Pass, as the new season kicked off just a day apart from the Loki premiere on Disney+.
But that theory proved fruitless, and instead it was Superman who was announced as the almost customary superhero in the latest Battle Pass. But at long last, Loki is nearly here.
It seems Mecha Cuddle Master wasn’t the only one who found their way to the Island.

What we didn’t know then but do know now is that Loki will be exclusive to Fortnite Crew, meaning he won’t be sold in the Item Shop. Only subscribers during the month of July 2021 will gain access to him. Fortnite Crew is a monthly subscription service that gives players exclusive cosmetics, a stipend of 1,000 V-Bucks per month, guaranteed access to the most current Battle Pass, and even more. Right now, new subscribers can still unlock three months of Spotify Premium with their Fortnite Crew subscription.
Players can subscribe for $12 at any point during a month to unlock all related rewards for that month. Previous Fortnite Crew Packs have featured mostly Epic original characters, but the service did previously offer DC Comics’ Green Arrow.
If you’re not into Loki, there’s still a lot going on in the Fortnite world this week (okay, and every other week). Check out the Week 3 challenges, the 17.10 patch notes, or the Week 3 Alien Artifacts to stay current on all things Fortnite.
