The Foundation, otherwise known as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, has finally, finally arrived in Fortnite Chapter 3. We kicked off this new era of Fortnite by learning the mysterious masked stranger assisting Jonesy was none other than the Rock, the WWE wrestling legend and action film star. Now Fortnite players can finally play as him, assuming you bought the Chapter 3 season 1 battle pass.

The Foundation/The Rock also comes with a bevy of new cosmetic items that you can earn by completing new quests associated with the character. We've laid out everything you need to know below.

We've got three variants of The Foundation/The Rock in Fortnite. One is his helmet-free look, which gives us a look at Hollywood's most bankable star. The other two are identical save for different types of helmets, with one being The Foundation's customary steel blue version and the other a darker black helmet.

Then we've got all of The Foundation's cosmetics, seen in the gallery below.
