The Predator comes to Fortnite

The Predator, the Yautja warrior who made his debut in the 1987 film Predator, is the latest addition to Fortnite. Epic Games announced Wednesday that the Predator is now available in Fortnite as part of the game’s Chapter 2 Season 5 Battle Pass.

Players can unlock the Predator outfit by leveling up the current Battle Pass, and they can earn additional Predator-themed cosmetics by completing Jungle Hunter quests. Those unlockable cosmetics include the Predator outfit with a built-in Bio-helmet online emote, a unique Heat Vision Hunter spray, banner, and emoticon.

The Predator joins an eclectic crew of Fortnite guest characters as part of the game’s Zero Point arc. Epic Games has added Din Djarin and Grogu (who are better known as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda, respectively) from Star Wars, Master Chief from Halo, Kratos from God of War, and Daryl Dixon and Michonne from The Walking Dead as Hunters, to name just a few.

It’s been a busy few years for the Predator. The alien has made appearance in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, Mortal Kombat X, and Archie Comics. The Predator also got its own dedicated game, Predator: Hunting Grounds, in 2020 and another film, The Predator, in 2018. Another Predator film is in the works under director Dan Trachtenberg, known for his work on 10 Cloverfield Lane and Black Mirror.
