Fortnite Adds All Sorts of Attack on Titan Goodness

Thanks to Fortnite’s v24.20 update this week, there’s new Attack on Titan content! Take a look at the action in this trailer.

Fortnite’s official website explained:

“The wait is over: Fortnite Battle Royale v24.20 brings the arrival of ODM Gear and Thunder Spears to the Island! (Speaking of the Island, discover Jaeger’s Family Basement in Anvil Square.)

Also, the Eren Jaeger Outfit is now unlockable in the Battle Pass. However, Eren isn’t the only member of the ‘Special Operations Squad’: pick up the Captain Levi and Mikasa Ackermann Outfits available now in the Item Shop!”

The site continued to explain some of the cool new features:

“Retrievable from the ground, Chests, and Scout Regiment Footlockers, put on Omni-Directional Mobility (ODM) Gear. Having this apparatus equipped will give you the ability to grapple in the air and strike opponents below! After attacking with the built-in blades, you’ll immediately boost back into the air so you can grapple elsewhere… or hover and execute another attack. . .

Also retrievable from the ground, Chests, and Scout Regiment Footlockers, Thunder Spears are arm-launched rockets designed to penetrate armored structures, detonating to damage enemies on both sides!”

Some things you can do include finding the location of Jaeger’s Family Basement, finishing the Eren Jaeger Battle Pass Quests in Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 2 to get his Outfit and other items, and getting an emblem after buying the Regiment Cloak Back Bling.

Fortnite has also had anime crossovers with Dragon Ball, Naruto and My Hero Academia. Attack on Titan is one of the most successful anime/manga series ever, and Kodansha gave this description for the manga:

“A century ago, the grotesque giants known as Titans appeared and consumed all but a few thousand humans. The survivors took refuge behind giant walls. Today, the threat of the Titans is a distant memory, and a boy named Eren yearns to explore the world beyond Wall Maria. But what began as a childish dream will become an all-too-real nightmare when the Titans return and humanity is once again on the brink of extinction…”
