Another Marvel character has made their way to Fortnite. As revealed by Epic Games, Ant-Man has joined the fight. A new suit that will make your character look like the iconic member of The Avengers is now available to purchase. Several items are also available that will help complete the look.
“Designed by scientist Hank Pym, size up your opponents wearing the iconic Ant-Man suit — available now in the Item Shop. The Item Shop also features the Toothpick Pickaxe and Ant-Man’s trusty steed, Ant-Tonio, who will have your back… or at least be your Back Bling,” Epic Games said of the suit.
Ant-Man will be a regular-sized man in the game. However, the company has added a unique feature that will allow players to enjoy the look and feel of the character. Specifically, an in-game photo feature will allow for “Ant-Sized imagery.”
FORTOGRAPHY: ANT-SIZED IMAGERY
“Ant-Man may be his human height on the Island, but that doesn’t mean you can’t shrink him down with the power of perspective. For our next Fortography theme, make Ant-Man (or any character!) seem tiny with your in-game photos. This means more than just zoomed-out screenshots — use your photography skills to make your subject seem legitimately micro. (For example: Make a tree seem giant in comparison!) Share your photos with us on Twitter by using the #Fortography hashtag!”
This is far from the first time that Marvel has invaded the wildly popular video game. Last summer brought with it the Nexus War event, which saw Thor, Wolverine, Iron Man, Groot, Doctor Doom and more enter the fold. Thanos was also a part of the game at one point. More recently, Black Panther was made available as a playable character.
As far as the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes, the hero is set to return. Disney revealed last year during its huge investor day presentation that Paul Rudd and Evengeline Lilly will be back as Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne, respectively, for a third installment in the franchise. Titled Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the film will also bring back Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne.
Additionally, Kathryn Newton has been cast as Lang’s daughter, Cassie, with Jonathan Majors on board to play the villain Kang the Conqueror. Peyton Reed, who directed both previous films in the series, is returning as well. No release date has been set.
Ant-Man is available in the Fortnite Item Shop now.
