Alien's xenomorph and Ripley come to Fortnite

Fortnite season 5 might genuinely be the wildest thing ever, even with season 4 having been a gigantic ad for Marvel. The theme of “hunters” coming together from across the multiverse to do battle has resulted in some of the greatest/silliest cross-franchise collaborations I’ve ever seen in a game marketed primarily at kids and teenagers.

Which is why it doesn’t surprise me at all to tell you that the next major Fortnite skins are Alien’s xenomorph and Ripley. Yup, the acid-bleeding, chest-bursting, face-caving xenomorph is the next skin players can purchase in Fortnite’s item shop, following in the wake of its nemesis the Predator. It’s joined by the smaller, but no less threatening likeness of Sigourney Weaver’s long-running character.
