With the game currently in the process of being updated to version 15.20, gamers have reportedly uncovered a Fortnite Predator skin.
The skin is said to be that of the original 1988 Predator and not one of the many variants we have seen over the years.
Fortnite is a game that is itching for something like Predator as not only will stalking others be great fun but it will just look awesome.
Fortnite has made many iconic skins available over the past few years including John Wick, Marvel characters and more recently The Mandalorian.
These iconic skins usually tie in with the current season’s story and if the rumor is true then it will be intriguing to see how Predator will fit in.
The recent Nexus War storyline, for example, saw Marvel heroes and villains crossing dimensions into the world of Fortnite.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed, the skin is likely to appear sometime this month to coincide with the new season launching today.
Rumors of the Predator have been further compounded by clues and easter eggs found in the game recently.
A symbol resembling the targeting Lazer from Predator’s iconic shoulder-mounted cannon was found on a door near a crash site closely resembling a scene from the movie.
This was the catalyst for the speculation which now has Fortnite gamers thinking it might be true.
While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, we won’t have long to wait as Fortnite version 15.20 will be arriving later today.
As of yet, there are no details on what will come with the update but more crossovers and iconic characters are expected to enter the game.
Season 5 introduced an interdimensional rift where NPC characters could cross over and act as “hunters”.
Given how updates usually work, we should expect to see some great new weapons and items as well as game modes and plot twists.
The Predator would be an amazing fit for a game like this, not only as a playable skin but being hunted by him would be nostalgic, to say the least.
Fortnite is available now for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
