Fortnite Season 6 is here, and as you would expect, Epic Games is capitalizing on the hype with some tantalizing item shop updates and brand new skins from some of the biggest franchises not just in gaming, but in all of media. For example, the latest item shop update has something special for fans of Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson, who is a known admirer of the free-to-play battle royale game on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, and mobile devices.
Unfortunately, the latest item shop update does not come with a Brie Larson Fortnite skin, but it does have a special Fortnite Locker bundle that features a loadout of cosmetic items and emotes chosen by the actress. Better yet, it's available to all players -- or at least every player that has the V-Bucks to spend on it -- but only for a limited time.
A moment I will *forever* cherish... introducing my Fortnite Locker, inspired by my real life squad - The Bush Babies! What items are must-haves in your locker? #EpicPartner @FortniteGame pic.twitter.com/hRucOvaeUA— Brie Larson (@brielarson) April 15, 2021
As Larson explains in the video, which you can check out above, the centerpiece of the bundle is a new version of the Bushranger skin, inspired by the fact that her "real life squad" is called the Bush Babies. In addition to the skin and several variants, the bundle also includes the Buzzy Bag back bling, the Honey Hitters harvesting tool, and the Freemix and Glitter emotes.
Larson also teased that she might soon post a video of herself playing Fortnite, (something fans have wanted to see for quite some time) and even asked fellow Marvel actress Tessa Thompson if she would be "game" to join her.
This is the second time that Larson has been tangentially involved in the world of Fortnite, after Captain Marvel was available as a purchasable skin in the game late last year. The skin was just a small part of the game's recent Marvel-themed "Nexus War" season, which is apparently only the beginning of the publisher's partnership with the brand.
"The reason why we called this season 'Nexus War' is this is just the start," Epic Games Worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard said in a podcast appearance last October. "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."
