Some more spider people are swinging into Fortnite today. As expected, Epic announced today that both Miles Morales and Spider-Man 2099 will be added to the in-game item shop ahead of next week’s premiere of Across the Spider-Verse (Part One).
Here’s what the characters look like in the battle royale:
The two skins join a surprisingly large number of spider people in the game, which started way back in 2021 when the original Spider-Man debuted as part of Chapter 3. (Miles’ co-star Gwen joined the roster last year.) The update is more than just some new characters, though: it will also include the return of the web shooter items, which let any character swing around the island as if they were Spider-Man. There are also some new quests, which will unlock a song from the upcoming movie as lobby music. Sadly, it doesn’t look like Spider-Ham is coming to the game. Check out the full details here.
The Spider-Man event kicks off just as a big Star Wars event ended, showing that Fortnite’s ability to harness pop culture properties hasn’t slowed down one bit. And it gives players a tough choice: spend those hard-earned V-bucks on Miles or this new character from legendary Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano.
Meanwhile, the next Spider-Verse movie premieres on June 2nd.
