Epic Games have added the Marvel character Nick Fury as a new skin in Fortnite, and here’s everything you need to know about the new S.H.I.E.L.D Set, including the price.
Fortnite has done multiple collaborations with Marvel in the past, with Carnage and Venom joining in Season 8, and the Season 4 Battle Pass consisting of superheroes. Spider-Man is also rumored to be arriving soon.
Epic Games aren’t done with Marvel characters just as Nick Fury has been added as a brand-new skin for players to unlock in Fortnite, complete with his own back bling, glider, and bundle.
Here’s how you can add these to your inventory.
How to get Nick Fury Fortnite bundle
Nick Fury is the director of the organization S.H.I.E.L.D and works closely with the Avengers. Epic Games added his outfit to the Fortnite Item Shop on November 26, and you can also get the S.H.I.E.L.D Set.
Here’s everything in the S.H.I.E.L.D Set:
- Nick Fury outfit
- F.I.E.L.D Pack Back Bling
- Director’s Scythe Pickaxe
- First-Strike Infiltration Glider
- Quinjets in Flight Loading Screen
Fury has played a major role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, and his Fortnite skin is based on his appearance in those. The Back Bling is included with the outfit, but you’ll have to purchase the Pickaxe and Glider separately.
Fortnite Nick Fury bundle price
Nick Fury’s outfit and Back Bling bundle cost 1,500 V-Bucks while the Glider and Pickaxe cost 800 V-Bucks each. Alternatively, you could spring for the whole S.H.I.E.L.D set for just 2,000 V-Bucks.
This costs the same as a Legendary skin includes all of these items, making it one of the cheapest bundles in the game. You can then equip the Nick Fury outfit as you battle Sideways Cube Monsters.
This bundle is an exciting addition for both Marvel and Fortnite fans. Epic Games might introduce even more crossovers before Season 8 ends, as there are other popular franchises that they can collaborate with.

The Rock teases major Fortnite role ahead of Chapter 3
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has teased his arrival in Fortnite ahead of the launch of Chapter 3 of the battle royale.
With Fortnite Season 8 coming to an end, popular celebrity Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has teased his arrival to the battle royale in a new video ahead of the Chapter 3 launch.
Now, it seems that Epic Games might be planning to bring in another major celebrity to the battle royale, as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson appears to be teasing his arrival in Fortnite.
The Rock set to play Fortnite’s The Foundation
This is a character who is the leader of a group known as the ‘The Seven,’ that have been in the game since Chapter 1 and were also a part of the Fortnite x Batman crossover comic book.
The Rock’s fridge contained The Foundation’s helmet in plain view. He also used some key Fortnite terms like Zero Point, Higher Ground, and Foundation.
Dwayne Johnson’s appearance in Fortnite has been teased before, and it seems that this crossover is finally happening.
Ever since this tweet went live, Fortnite fans have been speculating about whether or not this confirms The Rock’s arrival in the game. While some players are excited, others are a bit disappointed that The Foundation is a crossover character.
“I low-key wish The Foundation wasn’t The Rock,” tweeted one user. “I wanted him to be an original character.”
Although extremely likely, it’s worth keeping in mind that Dwayne Johnson hasn’t officially confirmed his arrival in Fortnite just yet.
It’s entirely possible that this could just be part of a joke. Hopefully, we’ll get an official announcement from him or Epic Games soon enough, and we’ll be sure to update you when that happens.

Leaked Fortnite Chapter 3 trailer gives first look at new map
A teaser trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 has been leaked through TikTok, giving players a first look at the new map.
It appears that Epic Games has accidentally added a Chapter 3 trailer to TikTok early, which gives us a look at the new map.
Fortnite is set to receive one of its largest updates yet with Chapter 3 in December. This will start a brand-new storyline, introduce plenty of new mechanics and NPCs, and of course, bring a new map.
The End event isn’t set to begin until Saturday, December 4, but it appears that Epic Games accidentally added the trailer to TikTok early. Although now removed, it’s still out in the wild, giving the first look at the Chapter 3 map.
Fortnite Chapter 3 trailer leaked
Of course, If you don’t want spoilers for The End event and Chapter 3 that follows, don’t read on any further.
Now onto the trailer.
In this short teaser trailer, we can see Agent Jonesy is washed out to sea off the coast of the Chapter 2 island. We then see the island completely flip over, revealing the Chapter 3 map on the other side.
This is presumably after The End event following the Cube Queen’s defeat. The Tsunami that hits Jonesy will likely mark the beginning of the downtime, but we’ll need to wait until the event to know for sure.
Some believe that this trailer teases that they’re bringing back the Chapter 1 map. We can’t see enough of it to confirm, but the desert biome spotted has led to speculation that Paradise Palms will make a return.
There has been some debate over whether this trailer is real, but it appears to be legit. Known leaker iFireMonkey confirmed that “the video IS real,” and they’ve used the TikTok account as a source before.
Leakers say they’ve been asked not to leak any Chapter 3 details during downtime between seasons, so we’re unlikely to know much more about the new map ahead of its arrival.

How to turn on split-screen in Fortnite
If you want to play Fortnite with your friend on the same console then here’s how you can activate the game’s split-screen mode.
If you want to play Fortnite with a buddy on your console then you can activate the split-screen feature that Epic Games added in 2019. Here’s how you can get this done.
There are plenty of fun activities for you to enjoy when you hop into a game of Fortnite, such as completing Character Punchcard Quests, collecting bounties, and unlocking cosmetics like the Naruto skin.
If you want to play with a friend on the same console, you can turn on Fortnite’s split-screen feature so that each player’s POV appears on one half of the screen, letting you both share the fun.
How to use split-screen in Fortnite
Initially, Fortnite did not have this feature and your only hope of playing with a friend was to join them online on separate devices. This changed when Epic Games added split-screen play in Chapter 2.
Here’s how you can activate it:
- Launch Fortnite and head to the main lobby
- Turn on the second controller, and log into the second player’s account
- Press Triangle (PlayStation) or Y (Xbox) button to log in player two to the game.
- Both players will then appear in the lobby
However, this setting is can only be used when playing Duos or Squads. You can only activate split-screen on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as this feature is not available on PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
Each player will have their own separate inventory of items to collect when playing Fortnite in split-screen mode. One of the major drawbacks is that the game session will end if just one of the two players gets disconnected.
Cutting your screen size in half can limit what you see in the game, so you’ll need to ensure that you and your teammate are both coordinated and providing information to each other during battles.
