The avenger themed season of Fortnite, Nexus War is here as we reach the end of summer 2020.
This season Fortnite stepped up their battle pass game as their new chapter 2 season 4 battle pass is fully based on marvel characters. The season was being teased for quite a while. This is either a desperation move or a resurrection for the famous battle royale game which had lost its charm in season 10. Whatever the case is Marvel/Fortnite fans are excited for the new season as this is probably the best battle pass they have ever released.
Battle pass and Overview
The Nexus War battle pass consists of Thor as tier 1 skin and Tony Stark AKA Ironman as tier 100 skin. We also have Wolverine, She-Hulk, Mystique, Groot, and Doctor Doom. The battle pass consists of various tidbits from the Marvel Comics as we have baby Groot as back bling, Thor’s hammer Mjölnir, and rocket raccoon as built-in emote for Groot.
They have also given each of the Super Hero a built-in emote such as Doctor Doom sits on his throne after a Victory Royale and Mystique can steal the skin of its enemy. The Competition level is on level 220 and will have 3 stages of cosmetic styles
