Continuing its lengthy partnership with Marvel, which has seen a number of top superheroes arrive in the game, Fortnite has revealed that Black Widow will be the next character to get a cosmetic bundle — and players can get it for free, too.
In the past, we’ve seen a number of popular Marvel characters arrive in the game including the likes of Thor, Iron Man, Groot, Storm, and many more.
While fans had been expecting Venom to be next on the scene, Epic Games have thrown a curve ball, by revealing that the next character will be Black Widow.
Now, Black Widow has actually had a skin in Fortnite before. She appeared in the Fortnite x Avengers Endgame crossover event in April 2019, so many players will have bought and used the skin in the past.
However, the new skin is actually be a variant of the old one, bringing a new spin to Black Widow cosmetics.
As revealed by Epic Games, the skin is “Black Widow (Snow Suit)” — giving players a winter variation of the character as we approach the holiday season.
Not only that, but it will feature in an upcoming Marvel Knockout duo tournament, from which players will be able to win the Black Widow bundle completely free.
How to get the Black Widow skin bundle for free
To earn the Black Widow cosmetics bundle for free, you’ll have to get practicing and take part in the upcoming Marvel Knockout tournament. This will take place on Wednesday, November 11.
If you and your duo place well in your region, you’ll get the bundle for free. Here’s the breakdown of where you need to place to win it:
