Season 5 of Fortnite is only a few days old at this point, but it has already exceeded fans' expectations in a lot of ways. The new season has already brought a lot of new changes to how you play the game, between new locations, new systems for completing challenges, and a crossover with The Mandalorian. If that wasn't enough, the new season has already brought a major IP crossover, with Kratos, the main character of the God of War franchise, being teased to appear in the game. On Thursday, Epic Games officially revealed a look at what the Kratos skin will look like in the game, along with the announcement that it is now available in the Item Shop. The announcement was revealed with an epic cinematic trailer, which you can check out below.
The victor of countless battles against gods and valkyries, Kratos turns to tackle the chaos of an exposed Zero Point.

Kratos fans will also be able to purchase a back bling and an axe tied to the character, or purchase all three in the bundle. There will also be an armored variant of the skin, which is exclusive to players on the PlayStation 5.

Kratos coming into the world of Fortnite is just the latest crossover to come into the game, after multiple Star Wars characters, Wreck-It Ralph, and an entire season's worth of Marvel Comics characters. While the Marvel season wrapped up with an epic Galactus-themed event earlier this week, Epic Games' Worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard hinted that this is only the beginning.
“The reason why we called this season ‘Nexus War’ is this is just the start,” Mustard said during a recent podcast appearance. “This is just the start of lots of stuff we have planned for many years in this Marvel integration. This is not the end; this is the beginning.”
