Fortnite: Mecha Morty arrives from the animated series Rick and Morty


The announcement was already in the air for some time, thanks to the usual leaks and rumors, and finally today Epic Games has confirmed that the famous couple Rick and Morty is ready to unleash panic in Fortnite Battaglia Reale, thanks to the arrival of the Mecha skin Morty which is now available in the Store.

The costume will be available for purchase in a bundle that also includes the "Morty's Backpack" and the "Space Serpent" pickaxe, inspired by the one seen in the fourth season of the famous animated series Rick and Morty, and the "Look at me!" Weapon cover that will make a Mister Miguardi appear every time you get an elimination, a little gem no doubt about it.

Also, from today, it is available for the purchase the new emote Hurry up, inspired by the iconic ballet that Rick and Morty used to save the Earth from the invasion of the aliens with the giant head. You can admire it in the trailer below:

If you haven't done so yet, you still have time to get the Rick skin, obtainable thanks to the Battle Pass of Season 7 of Chapter 2 of Fortnite.

Fortnite recently updated to version 17.40, which among other things introduced the new Impostors mode, heavily inspired by Among Us, to the point that its developers have accused Epic Games of plagiarism.

Fortnite Adds J Balvin Skin This Week, Here's How To Unlock It Early For Free

The Fortnite Icon Series grows one superstar bigger this week with the introduction of the J Balvin skin.

Eager players can unlock the Fortnite J Balvin skin early. Here's all you need to know.

J Balvin will debut in the Fortnite Item Shop on Thursday, August 26 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET. Included in his cosmetic set will be several additional items for players who buy the bundle, though the character skin will be sold individually as well. Prices have not yet been revealed, but precedent suggests the J Balvin skin complete bundle will be sold for about $20. Included in the J Balvin set are the following items:

  • Two additional styles: Energia Balvin and Skeleton Balvin
  • Real back bling
  • Real pickaxe
  • Balvin Cruiser glider
  • Each style even includes the real-life Balvin Jordan 1 sneakers. There will also be an In Da Party emote featuring the song In Da Getto by J Balvin and Skrillex.

    How To Unlock J Balvin Skin Early

    As is now customary, Epic is giving competitive players the chance to earn a new high-profile skin not just for free, but early too. Before J Balvin appears in the Item Shop on Thursday, players can take part in the J Balvin Cup on Tuesday, August 24. In this Duos mode tournament, players will have three hours to accumulate as many points as they can across up to 10 matches.

    Points are scored by outlasting and eliminating opponents and the top-scoring duos in each region will earn J Balvin, plus his back bling and pickaxe totally free. You can find the full rulebook on the game's website.

    Fortnite never rests, so before you catch up with the J Balvin skin, make sure you're all done with the outgoing Week 11 challenges, or grab Wonder Woman in the Item Shop before she disappears.
