New Fortnite Venom Skin Adds Eddie Brock Alternate Style

Marvel's most famous black suit is getting a Hollywood makeover in Fortnite.

Comments

Fortnite is already home to dozens of Marvel skins including Venom, the Spider-Man villain/occasional anti-hero, but now a new Fortnite Venom skin has arrived that more closely resembles the Tom Hardy version of the character.

Popping up online today thanks to a number of eagle-eyed Fortnite insiders, we are able to get our first look at a new Venom skin in Fortnite which was previously rumored--and all but guaranteed anyway given the close relationship between Fortnite and Marvel. The new Venom skin is now available and includes an Eddie Brock alternate style and a built-in emote that will allow players to morph from the human to symbiote stalker in the middle of any battle royale match.

The Eddie Brock skin includes all previously released Venom cosmetics too, and players who already own the complete Venom bundle previosuly released can add Eddie Brock for 800 V-Bucks. The new Venom skin is the third symbiote suit from Marvel to appear in the game following last year's original Venom skin and the Carnage skin new to the Fortnite Season 8 battle pass. Those three are just a small fraction of all the Fortnite Marvel skins so far, which also includes heroes and villains like Thor, Wolverine, and Captain Marvel.

If you need more Marvel surprises in your Fortnite life right now, you can find new symbiote weapons in-game for a limited time. We'll be sure to report back once Venom is in the Item Shop. In the meantime, if you're trying to climb to tier 100 to unlock Carnage, here's why it's been such an XP grind so far. Don't worry, Epic says a fix is on the way.
