Update: And it’s official. Fortnite skins for Sarah Connor and the T-800 are now available for purchase in Fortnite. You find them in the in-game store, with Sarah sporting two costume variations. She runs for 1,800 V-bucks while the T-800 will cost players 1,500. However, for the next 23 hours, you can grab both skins in the Future War bundle for 2,800 V-Bucks. Check out the trailer below.
Original story: Fortnite season 5 has been a wild ride thanks to its crossover guests. The Mandalorian, Kratos, Master chef, The walking dead‘s Daryl Dixon / Michonne, and most recently the Predators are all running around with pickaxes and floss (is that always a thing?) as we speak. Even after Galactus actually finished the Marvel season, Black Panther and Captain Marvel joined the fray anyway. The fun doesn’t end there, as now Fortnite is teasing that its next guests are from a certain machine apocalypse.
The official Fortnite Twitter account posted a new in-game feed. Narrated by Jonesy, these shows typically tease an upcoming character skin, and this time Jonesy discusses meeting a heroine who can relate to “disaster. impending world, a journey through time, paradoxes ”. Given that the tweet itself describes “A ruthless machine and protector from the future,” it seems likely that the Terminator characters, namely Sarah Connor, are on the verge of falling into Fortnite.
Of course, if audio speculation isn’t enough, a Twitter account following Fortnite leaks tweeted an allegedly leaked photo of a PlayStation Store ad promoting Sarah Connor and the T-800, so there you go.
A similar leak happened shortly before Kratos’ reveal, so it’s probably only a matter of days or hours before we get official confirmation. It seems like a perfect fit considering that Season 5’s theme is all about hunters, and Sarah Connor / Terminator certainly fits that bill. With so many wacky guests, the question of whether “if” a character can appear in Fortnite has now become a question of “when.” In other words, put Samus in the game already, you cowards.
