It's like discovering a whole new side to the iconic character.
Original Story: Yeah, alright, we get it. You probably dislike Fortnite despite the fact it's hardly doing much harm. However, you've got to admit this trailer for Kratos' appearance in the gigantic Battle Royale title is pretty darn cool. The God of War protagonist features alongside the head of Mimir after the Greek powerhouse kills a werewolf that was primed and ready to attack a Fortnite character. Good stuff, Kratos.
The trailer also provided a quick glimpse of what the set will look like once upgraded, with gold-plated armour. There'll also be a Mimir Back Bling, the Leviathan Axe Pickaxe with built-in Freezing Burst Emote, and the Guardian Shield Glide. It's not a crossover we really ever expected to see, but a cool moment nonetheless.
Sony Santa Monica's Cory Barlog said: "Having Kratos in Fortnite is a mashup that we’ve been talking about for a long time, so it’s especially gratifying to see the collaboration come to fruition! The first thing I’ll do with Kratos in the game is hold hands or maybe go for a moonlit stroll with Mancake. I’m most excited about the Guardian Shield glider, that thing is AWESOME. I want to give a big thanks to all the devs over at Epic for the incredible job they did realizing Kratos in Fortnite. I’m truly in awe of their talent and passion."
