As was leaked earlier in the week, Uncharted has arrived in the Fortnite Item Shop. The crossover, primarily designed to promote the film, will allow you to purchase Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer skins for your Battle Royale avatars. You can toggle between Nate’s traditional Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End look or Tom Holland, and the same is true of Chloe, allowing you to select between her Uncharted: The Lost Legacy threads or Sophia Ali. Each skin comes with both styles included, and Ms Frazer even gets a bonus Back Bling to boot.
As is typically the case with Fortnite, there are other themed goodies to pick up, including a Second Hand Saber pickaxe, Parashurama Axe pickaxe, and an Update Journal emote.
The full Uncharted bundle, featuring both skins and the above extras, will cost you 2,500 V-Bucks, which converts to a little under £15.99/$19.99 in real money.
But that’s not all: starting 7AM PT / 3PM GMT on 18th February, a new batch of Uncharted-themed quests will be added to Fortnite which will see you digging up valuable treasure maps. There’ll be in-game items to unlock for finding these, as well as valuable Battle Pass XP, of course. The quests will be available until the end of Season 3 Chapter 1 in early March, so you’ve got a fair few weeks to locate them.
Will you be picking up these skins at all? Remember, the Uncharted movie is out now, and you can find out more about that in our movie review.
Never before have I wasted V-Bucks so quickly.
I hope the seaplane glider is unlocked via the quests. If not ☹️
@BritneyfR_ee I think it must be because it's not on the Item Shop yet. That'll probably be the ultimate reward for all the Treasure Map quests.
Also it feels kind of wrong that these aren’t part of the ‘gaming legends’ set. It’s just showing as a measly epic skin atm - I hope they fix this later.
Other than that, I love these skins! 😁
@get2sammyb fingers crossed 🤞
It blows my mind the IP that these guys get in their game, I don't play Fortnite but it is very impressive, between gaming IP's and musical artist it doesn't show any signs of slowing down!
I have 10 seasons of battle pass v bucks saved up to blow on something just like this.
Do these skins show up on Switch and Xbox? Like could a Xbox player buy these or can only PS players buy them?
@WallyWest Yeah, anyone can buy them on any platform. I bought the Master Chief skin last year on my PlayStation.
These Uncharted skins aren’t classed as ‘gaming legends’ skins but the previous gaming legends skins had additional styles that could only be unlocked on specific platforms. The exclusive styles for Kratos and Aloy could only be unlocked if you played a match on PS5. And the exclusive Master Chief skin could only be unlocked if you played a match on Xbox Series S/X.
Yay more worthless skins so you can throw away more money 🙄
@RubyCarbuncle But its Drake, I mean come on, the dude was made for this!
So are these skins only available on playstation hardware?
@Snatcher I guess but still.
I will say that if Fortnite ever falters (I don’t see that ever happening but you never know) and they release a “Fortnite 2” they are going to catch hell relicensing all of the IP skin and music.
Anyone can buy them.
Kratos and Aloy were available on each platform, as was Master Chief.
But if you played a match with Kratos and Aloy base skins equipped on a PS5 you unlocked an exclusive skin variation of each. Kratos got his gold armor and Aloy got that outfit from the Frozen Wilds.
If you did the same thing on Series X or Series S with Master Chief you unlocked a skin similar to his Halo 5 appearance.
The kids love it.
I used to buy skins during the height of my Fortnite career (I’ve transitioned to a casual Fortnite player now). But I realized just how much these skins costs and shut that down. I just buy the battle pass now. Nothing else.
@TheRedComet It is a very good point, like you I don't see it but stranger things have happened.
This is the closest thing I have seen to a metaverse I keep being told we are heading towards. To think this was just a side game of 'Save the World' is just crazy!!
@TheRedComet LOL same, I used to be all over this game!
