Fortnite’s final season, Zero Point, brings together some of the greatest hunters in movies, games, and comics for an epic battle royale showdown. This event started with The Mandalorian and his companion child leaping through a dimensional rift, and almost every week after that brought in new hunters like the Terminator, the Predator, and this week’s Ripley’s addition from the Extraterrestrial movies. Unfortunately for her (but fortunately for us), she did not come out of the loophole on her own. A Xenomorph was also successful.
Ripley and the Xenomorph are now available for purchase. You can get them both together for 2,200 V-Bucks, or you can get Ripley alone for 1,500 and the Xenomorph for 1,600. Ripley has two looks you can switch between, and the Xenomorph has a built-in emote. Alien fun is complemented by the P-500 Power Loader Hand Pickaxe, Jonesy the Cat in a Transporter, Cheyenne Dropship Glider, and Chest Emote.
There are still a few weeks left in the Zero Point season, and if Epic Games maintains its current pace of revealing new characters from other popular licenses, we’ll likely see more exciting crossovers. We don’t expect many more superheroes, because Fortnite is already here wonder and DC characters from last season’s Nexus War, who even saw Galactus dominate the map for a limited time event.
I recently wrote that this season of Fortnite has put me more into the game than I’ve ever been, and is a great starting point for newcomers or people who have quit gaming. The infusion of new characters, the missions associated with them, and the unfolding of the battles have been fantastic.
Who do you hope appears next? Is there a popular movie or TV show with a hunter that would fit right into the context of Fortnite? Let us know your idea in the comments section below!
