A new "Guardians of the Galaxy" skin has been teased. Gamora is joining "Fortnite", with a new cup also announced for interested players who want to get her skin early and for free!
Gamora's arrival also means that the entire "Guardians of the Galaxy" is close to completion, with only Drax missing out on the fun.
Any Marvel fan would be familiar with the green-skinned alien dubbed as "the fiercest woman in the galaxy," "daughter of Thanos," and "the most dangerous woman in the universe." However, Gamora is best known as a warrior from the "Guardians of the Galaxy," together with Star-Lord (Peter Quill), Rocket Racoon, Groot and Drax the Destroyer.
Star-Lord was first released way back in Chapter 1 Season 8. Groot, with Rocket as his Back Bling, was later released in Chapter 2 Season 4. Finally, in Chapter 2 Season 7, Gamora is set to be included!
'Guardians of the Galaxy': 'Fortnite' Gamora skin
The incoming Gamora skin, previewed in the Epic Games website, is seen wearing a white suit outfit taken from the Marvel comics. Her bundle includes her Cloak Back Bling, Godslayer Pickaxe and the Godslayer Glideboard.
No official information was released for Gamora's V-bucks price. However, a prediction from PCgamer estimates the skin to cost between 1,200 to 2,000 V-bucks. Gamora's complete bundle is estimated to be priced at 2,000 to 2,500 V-Bucks.
Also, it is important to note that Gamora is paired up with Star-Lord in the Item Shop. Although it is not certain, YouTuber Tabor Hill suspects that the old Star-Lord skin would be coming back, instead of a brand-new iteration. The Star-Lord bundle could possibly include: Star-Lord Pack Back Bling, Guardian Axe and The Milano glider.
