According to an Ubisoft community developer, Ezio will be available in the item shop later this month. Additionally, anyone who purchases Assassin's Creed Valhalla or the Dawn of Ragnarok DLC will get the skin once it's available.

For those who might be new to the Fortnite scene, this is far from the first inter-game crossover between Fortnite and a major series from another publisher. Other recent game-based tie-ins include Uncharted, League of Legends, and Gears of War—and that's noot even getting into the broader pop-culture crossovers with everything from X-Men to Star Wars, The Rock, and—sure, why not—Air Jordans. In fact, Epic just kicked off Amazing Web Week in Fortnite that gives players a chance to earn Spider-Man's Web Shooters as loot.
