Epic Games have released the brand new John Wick inspired cosmetic set for Fortnite Battle Royale alongside a new limited time mode, but how much will it cost to get your hands on all the new Parabellum-inspired gear? 

Dataminers found traces of the John Wick cosmetic pack on May 15, following the arrival of the v9.01 content update, and it’s now available for players to pick up in the Fortnite Item Shop.

Now, fans of the popular movie franchise John Wick can take part in a special event dedicated to the character, and even dress up as the former hitman thanks to a new cosmetic set launched in conjunction with the release of John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum.

Epic GamesHere’s our first-look at the new John Wick set, available in the Fortnite Item Shop.

How much does the John Wick cosmetics set cost? 

This John Wick set includes the new outfit, as seen below, along with the Simple Sledge Pickaxe, new Back Bling and Assassin wrap. The skin itself, along with the Back Bling, costs 2,000 V-Bucks, while the Pickaxe is a further 500 and you can pick up the weapon camo for 300 – meaning a total of 2,800 total.

These new cosmetics have been revealed ahead of the release of Parabellum, the third chapter in the John Wick saga, which is set to premiere on May 17, and would cost $24.99 if you wanted the lot. This would mean purchasing the 2,500 V-Bucks pack, which also grants players an additional 300, which would cover the cost of the full pack. 

The emotes though, of which there are two, will set you back a further 200 each. 

New ‘Wick’s Bounty’ LTM revealed

That’s not all, either. The game’s developer also confirmed that a previously leaked LTM, ‘Wick’s Bounty’, has now been added to the game.

For those interested in that, Epic Games also posted a first-look trailer of the limited time mode on YouTube, giving fans an idea of what to expect. 

“The High Table has opened a new contract,” they wrote in a website announcement. “It’s up to you to collect the bounty. Stay alive and collect gold tokens by eliminating the other bounty hunters. 

“The first one to fulfill the order wins, but be careful how far ahead you get, as you will become a target for everyone else.”

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.

In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.

The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
