Following a leak earlier today, Epic Games has now officially released Fortnite skins for The Terminator characters T-800 and Sarah Connor! The two characters are the latest hunters to be added as part of Chapter 2 Season 5, and can be found in the game's Shop. While the release was not unexpected, it is a bit surprising considering that Predator was just recently added to the game. Either way, it seems that Fortnite fans are being treated to quite a bit of exciting content this week! The Future War bundle for the Terminator content can be acquired for 2800 V-Bucks for the next 23 hours.
A video for the new content can be found in the Tweet embedded below.
A machine that will never stop.
Sarah Connor and the T-800 are the newest Hunters to arrive on the Island. Grab them in the Shop now! pic.twitter.com/l02H66LjTZ— Fortnite (@FortniteGame) January 22, 2021
The theme for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 focuses on the greatest hunters from across the multiverse. This season has seen Jonesy recruit hunters such as The Mandalorian's Din Djarin, God of War's Kratos, Halo's Master Chief, Predator, and now T-800 and Sarah Connor. In the trailer above, Jonesy can be seen lending a hand to help the T-800, following its molten steel bath at the end of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
In addition to the two skins, there's also HK Skynet Uplink Back Bling, a Combat Knife, a Cyberdyne Salute Emote (which evokes T-800's flaming thumbs-up), and a Techno-Grip Axe. All of these items are included in the Future War bundle. Those looking to just purchase the skins individually can snag T-800 or Sarah Connor for 1800 V-Bucks each. Sarah Connor also includes the Techno-Grip Axe.
For fans of The Terminator franchise, this definitely seems like an exciting bit of new content! It certainly seems like Jonesy is working hard to bring in any hunter he can this season. Now that the rumors surrounding Terminator have proven true, it will be interesting to see if Lara Croft is next!
