Somebody tells Coral, uh, Carl that his father is on Fortnite.
Epic Games has added famous sheriff zombie killing leader Rick Grimes to Fornite, and he’s available in the item shop now. Rick was added to the item shop as part of this year’s Fortnitemares event and brings classic universal icons such as Frankenstein’s monster, the mummy and more into play.
Daryl Dixon and Michonne Hawthorne have also returned to the Fortnite Item Shop to celebrate Rick’s arrival. So if you missed them last time, now is your chance. Whoever buys Rick receives his standard outfit as well as his winter Rick Grimes outfit.
As you can see in the screenshot above, Rick comes with a unique pickaxe, back bling, and glider, much like the other outfits available for purchase.
In addition to Rick, Epic Games has also added the Curdle Scream Leader (next to Frankenstein’s Monster) and Skeletara (next to Rick) skins to the Item Shop. See the picture below.
Rick is wrapping up the first week of cards for Fortnitemares, which means another week will begin, and it’s everyone’s guess as to what outfits and skins these cards bring. In other news, Venom and Carnage will be leaving Fortnite on October 18th, and the Ghoul Trooper and Brainiac outfits are available for purchase now in the item shop.
