Epic Games released an obvious hint that the famous vampire hunter Blade might arrive in Fortnite.
The Marvel crossover with Epic Games’ Fortnite is still going on strong and is evolving weekly. The game’s current season saw the arrival of Wolverine, Storm, She-Hulk, Iron Man, and many others, with players able to collect superheroes outfits via the season’s Battle Pass. But it seems that Epic isn’t done bringing Marvel content yet.
The newest patch notes hint at another praised Marvel character joining the team: Blade. Here is what you need to know.
Blade Will Introduce a Whole New Gaming Experience
Epic Games stopped bringing formal patch notes for Fortnite update for quite a while, but it offers content creators an overview of sorts. The last one comes with a teaser for Blade.
Throughout the notes, developers highlighted certain letters in red, which, when put together, reads, “DAYWALKER.” And, as you probably know, a daywalker means half-vampires or other vampire types that can somehow walk in the daylight. It’s also the title that the comics character Blade wears.
Blade is part of the Marvel universe for almost five decades and appears in many major motion pictures. The Blade comics, on the other hand, aren’t that popular in Marvel’s catalog, and Blade himself is sometimes only a cameo character in other books.
But that’s not the worst thing ever to happen. Blade was still a star in the mainstream media, with Marvel Studios confirming an upcoming Blade movie starring Majershala Ali.
Possible Blade-content in Fortnite: What to Expect
A Blade outfit seems pretty obvious, but Epic Games likely has better plans than that. Maybe the vampire hunter will be featured in other content alongside Thor, Wolverine, and the rest of the squad, which seems possible given the Marvel crossover appears to be unstoppable.
More details about Blade will be available soon, so we should wait for more surprises. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is still in its early days, and we’ll surely get the chance to see a lot of stuff.
