Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock and Venom are joining Fortnite

Marvel anti-hero Venom, and his unwilling host Eddie Brock, are coming to Fortnite again, as if we ever doubted it. His nemesis Carnage was already added to the season 8 battle pass, but a new leak from data miner HypeX shows that cinematic version of Venom will finally be added as a skin.

Not only that, but Venom will be accompanied by an alternate skin based on Tom Hardy's role as Eddie Brock from Sony's Venom films. Check out the gorgeous odd couple below.

According to HypeX, you'll buy the Eddie Brock outfit and be able to use a built-in emote to turn into Venom. Here's a gallery of images from the item shop.

When does Venom release in Fortnite?

Eddie Brock and Venom (both the new and season 4 versions) are available in the item shop now.

Just the Eddie Brock/Venom skin will cost you 2,000 V-bucks, as expected since it's an emote skin. That includes the new Symbiote Scythe and Tendrils of Venom back bling.

The Venom bundle costs 2,800, and includes all that plus the original season 4 Venom skin, the Smybiote Slasher pickaxe, the Symbiote Tote back bling, and the We Are Venom emote.

We'll update this post when more information is released. In the meantime, check out our Fortnite hub for more challenge guides and news.
