One of Fortnite's most popular skins is getting a gold-plated sibling. All the way back in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, Agency leader Midas transfixed players with his cool look, his ability to turn basically anything into gold, and his mysterious connection to other characters. Well, like an '80s sitcom on its way out, Fortnite has introduced a new family member for Midas.
The female Midas skin, named "Marigold," was leaked thanks to data miners like HYPEX, but it was originally a fan design by Twitter user Kitsunexkitsu.
Yep, Marigold is definitely part of the same family as Midas, down to the chalky skin, gold irises, and milky white right eye.
Even better, much like her counterpart, Marigold's special ability allows her to gradually turn more of her body into gold with every elimination she makes on the battlefield. Here's a look at her final form.
According to data miners like HYPEX, Marigold will be featured in an upcoming bundle for an indeterminate amount of V-bucks.
Thankfully, Marigold isn't arriving all by her lonesome. She'll be accompanied by a couple of additional cosmetics that fit her gold aesthetic. There's twin golden short swords for your pickaxes, and then there's a half-golden duffel bag laced with golden bullets that we can assume is a back bling item.
There's also going to be a number of challenges that will allow you to earn up to 1,500 V-bucks, according to the leaks.
As for when Marigold is hitting the item shop, a date has yet to be confirmed or even leaked, so keep an eye out. We'll update this post as soon as we know more.
Although Epic Games' massive battle royale Fortnite remains free-to-play, it recently debuted a paid subscription service referred to as "Fortnite Crew." Costing $12 USD per month, Fortnite Crew is an expanded version of the game's previous Battle Pass system which features all-new goodies for Fortnite players.
The Battle Pass, which allows players to level up and earn rewards by winning battles and completing in-game objectives, remains present, but can now be purchased alongside a Crew subscription. Previously, a Battle Pass cost $9.50 USD per month. This may be in response to fans previously criticizing the "grindy" nature of the Battle Pass.
A Fortnite Crew membership includes each month's Battle Pass, 1,000 of the in-game currency V-Bucks, and a monthly "Crew Pack." Each Crew Pack contains a variety of goodies, including at least one new skin and accessory.
March may be said to come "in like a lion," but, in Fortnite, it looks like the third month of the year will be coming in like a llama instead. Not just any llama, but a pretty cool familiar face which Fortnite players should recognize. A trailer posted to YouTube shows off March's exclusive Fortnite Crew skin: Llambro, a colorful character inspired by the game's popular llama mascot. Previous Fortnite Crew skins include the space-inspired Galaxia and the Fox Clan warrior Vi.
Entitled "A Llegend Enters," the trailer features Llambro charging into battle, unicorn-inspired horn pointed forward and both gun and pickaxe at the ready. He is shown blending powerful attacks with eye-catching color and style.
