Epic has officially confirmed and added the Aliens bundle to Fortnite!
Someone let Jonesy out of the bag, as leakers revealed that not only are fans getting a Xenomorph skin, but also Ellen Ripley in her Aliens attire!
Epic Games are once again dipping into horror fans’ dreams for Fortnite. This time the dev has not-so-coyly teased on Twitter that we’ll be seeing an appearance from the Alien franchise.
The tweet mentions a ship “running on tech that seems to be from 1986”, which narrows it down that we might very well see Ripley and the space marines very soon. In fact, according to Sportskeeda, based on the leaks that they’ve acquired, the Xenomorph is the next Hunter for players to snag.
Update: Tonight, Epic launched a trailer and the bundle set in their store. Full details below!
From the press release:
“In space, no one can hear you scream. On the Island, everyone can you see you Emote.
Agent Jonesy’s search to find the best Hunters took a dark and stormy stop to LV-426. Now there’s good news… and bad news.
Bad news first? Surprising no one, a Xenomorph was able to sneak back with Jonesy. It has been described as the perfect organism. Its structural perfection matched only by its hostility. This menacing adversary comes equipped with both the Xenomorph Tail Back Bling and Xeno Menace built-in Emote.
Good news: Jonesy’s trip has delivered one of the greatest action heroes… Ripley. If she can stand her ground against the deadly Xenomorphs, she can take on anything on the Island. In addition to having her Nostromo Crew Outfit variant, you’ll warrant attention with the Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier (complete with Jonesy the Cat).
Before it’s game over, man, you can also get the Space Gear Bundle. This themed Bundle includes the P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe, the Cheyenne Dropship Glider, and a new Emote that’s bursting on the scene.”
