A new set of cosmetic gear has cropped up in the item shop in Fortnite and it’s ready to tap into the wallets of every nostalgia-drenched thirty-something who dabbles in Epic’s struggling little battle royale game.
Yes, you can don the official garb of Messrs. Spengler, Stantz, Zeddemore and Venkman and bust out a variety of gear, including a Proton Pack, a bespoke Ecto-1-esque glider, a Proton Pickaxe, a Ghost Trap and a selection of skins. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to play as the previously mentioned real ghostbusters, but there’s a good selection of gear to enjoy if you ain’t afraid’a no ghost and Ecto-1 is apparently hiding on the map, too. You can check out the selection of available goodies at the bottom of the page in the video from sniper god 987.
A host of themed cosmetics and characters have come to the game over the past few months, including many Marvel characters like Blade and Daredevil, and there’s even a bespoke Fortnite Nintendo Switch coming soon with a rather fetching livery exclusive to the bundle. The runaway Fortnite freight train shows no sign of slowing down, although it’s pretty easy to see why it’s so popular.
On a related topic, if you just can’t get enough ‘bustin’ in your life at this time of year (or you just want something to tide you over until the next entry in the film franchise is released), Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered is on sale with a rather large discount in both Europe and the US, too.
