Just when Fortnite fans thought that the Mandalorian is enough to keep them excited for the new season, it looks like Kratos from God of War just stole his spotlight.
It looks like the skin that will be used for this season is from the PS5 reboot of God of War. In fact, the official Twitter account of PlayStation also teased about his appearance before the video even appeared.

Here’s what you can get along with the Kratos skin
While getting the Mandalorian skin is pretty easy through a guide provided by Dexerto, you can get the Kratos skin via the game’s item store for 1,500 V-Bucks or roughly $15.
Kratos’ Leviathan Axe and Guardian Shield are also available as standalone purchases if you want your other characters to wield these cosmetics or just show them off in-game. Players can also get these items with a Kratos bundle option which currently costs at a discounted price of 2,200 V-Bucks.
While the Mandalorian gets a Baby Yoda as his back bling, Kratos also has the option of having the talking head of Mimir by his side.
Mimir is the Norse god of knowledge and wisdom and he’s famous for providing lore as well as occasional commentary in God of War.
PS5 owners also have a chance to get an exclusive skin
HYPEX, who is known for sharing leaked Fortnite content, also shared on Twitter that there is a PS5 exclusive for the God of War skin.

With Epic Games pushing for crossplay in most of their games, it looks like it’s also possible that Fortnite fans are also expecting that they could add Master Chief from Halo based on recent leaks since they pulled off adding a Sony exclusive character.
However, we’ll just have to wait until they officially announce his appearance in the near future. Who knows, we might even get his signature guns.
