It appears that Epic Games have finally revealed when Fortnite players will be able to get their hands on the Deadpool skin, following weeks of in-game challenges.

Since its release way back in the summer of 2017, Fortnite has hosted a number of ambitious superhero crossovers, incorporating skins and game modes based on a number of popular comic books. 

These include the awesome Avengers inspired game mode, or the Harley Quinn cosmetics that were added when Birds of Prey hit theatres. An overriding theme of Season 2 has been Deadpool, with fans asked to complete weekly challenges to unlock cosmetics, building up to the release of his skin.

Deadpool’s hideout has been a key location in Fortnite Chapter 2.

It was previously unknown when the Deadpool skin itself would release, with players being given smaller rewards like wraps for completing the weekly challenges. 

However, a look inside Deadpool’s hideout following the most recent update is pretty indicative of when we can expect to see the merc with the mouth running around Epic Games’ battle royale. 

In his hideout, above the toilet, you can see a calendar with a date circled at some point in the near-future. While the calendar is actually incomplete and there are no numbers, it appears to indicate Friday, April 3, based on when it was updated and the date circled.

April 3 coincides with the release of the Week 7 Deadpool challenges, which are thought to be the final. Previous weeks have seen players collect a Deadpool-related item and take it out in-game. 

If you haven’t completed all the challenges yet, check out our complete guide for getting the Deadpool skin here.

However, there is some speculation that Epic will set some extra, last-minute challenges to complete, before you are able to get your hands on the full skin. We’ll have to wait and see.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
