Fortnite adds character outfit Kratos from God of War

Here is an overview of the character skin, via Epic Games:

Familiar instruments of Kratos await in the Oathbreaker set. Glide into battle with the Guardian Shield Glider—a memento of Kratos’ beloved wife Laufey the Just—and let wisdom guide you with the Mimir Back Bling. Plus, forged by makers of Mjölnir Brok and Sindri, harvest with the Leviathan Axe Pickaxe.

Unleash the frozen leviathan by activating the Freezing Burst Emote, built into the Leviathan Axe Pickaxe and the first-ever built-in Pickaxe Emote.

When you play a match on your PlayStation 5 after purchasing the Kratos Outfit, you’ll unlock the Armored Kratos Style—a celebration of his PlayStation legacy.

Cory Barlog, creative director at God of War developer Sony Interactive Entertainment Santa Monica Studio, also shared the following comment on the PlayStation Blog:

“Having Kratos in Fortnite is a mashup that we’ve been talking about for a long time, so it’s especially gratifying to see the collaboration come to fruition! The first thing I’ll do with Kratos in the game is hold hands or maybe go for a moonlit stroll with Mancake. I’m most excited about the Guardian Shield glider, that thing is AWESOME.

“I want to give a big thanks to all the devs over at Epic for the incredible job they did realizing Kratos in Fortnite. I’m truly in awe of their talent and passion.”

Fortnite is available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC via the Epic Games Store, and Android.
