Fortnite: Silver Surfer Skin just uploaded in a brand new store pack
Well, if you thought eight heroes would be enough for Fortnite’s big Marvel season, we’re indeed going to have a host of futures of them it seems. While we’ve had clues about the future arrival of Black Panther (which is obviously now a very complicated situation as I discussed earlier), tonight we have our first Marvel Skin Battle Pass in Silver Surfer.
How much will it cost you?
- You can buy Silver Surfer for 1,500 V-bucks (~ $ 15)
- But of course you’ll want the actual surfboard as a glider for 800 V-bucks (~ $ 8)
- And then you can get him a super-simplistic silver pickaxe for 800 V-Bucks (~ $ 8)
- But there’s a bundle for all of that (and a “Herald’s Star” backbling that comes with the skin) for 2,200 V-Bucks, so $ 22, saving you a bit of cash.
Silver Surfer once again represents Fortnite being able to pull pretty much anything The Marvel property it wants, given that we have heroes spanning the X-Men, Avengers, Fantastic Four, and Guardians of the Galaxy, both currently. in the MCU and not yet in the MCU.
Considering that Galactus is the big bad this season, it makes sense that Silver Surfer will also be a part of this season to some extent, given how intertwined the characters are. We haven’t seen Silver Surfer on the big screen since he was in the Fantastic Four sequel bearing his name, Rise of the Silver Surfer, in 2007. You know who did his voice? You are not going to guess. Laurence Fishburne! Morpheus himself. Who knew?
It stands to reason that Silver Surfer will likely reappear in the MCU if the next phase really builds on Galactus as a rumored big deal. But for now, we’re just seeing it in Fortnite, and you can look for it tonight if you want.
