Fortnite is well known for collaborating with a variety of brands, studios, comics, and celebrities. So, any news for any sort of collaboration should not be surprising for anyone. According to recent reports, Epic announced a Street Fighter collaboration that brings two fan-favorite fighters to Fortnite’s roaster. Here’s what we know about it.
The most recent collab Fortnite did was with Suicide Squad 2021, bringing in Idris Elba’s Bloodsport to the roaster. Apart from this, a Walking Dead crossover is also being rumored. While the Walking Dead collab still remains to be officially confirmed, Fortnite has announced a new crossover with the popular game series Street Fighter.
“Round 2. FIGHT 🥊 Announcing two new challengers! Guile and Cammy from @StreetFighter are making their way to the Island. Read about their upcoming Cosmetic Sets and about the Cammy Cup where you can win her Outfit early”, tweeted Fortnite.
The collab brings two characters from Street Fighter into Fortnite, namely, Guile and Cammy. Guile is a major in the United States Air Force whose goal is to destroy the criminal organization Shadaloo. Cammy was a deadly clone assassin that was working for Shadaloo before breaking free to become an MI6 operative for the British government.
What It Brings
In Feb 2021, Street Fighter’s Chun-Li and Ryu joined Fortnite, giving fans some amazing crossover content to enjoy. The same would be the case with this crossover as it brings along new skins and cosmetic items for Guile and Cammy.
Guile and Cammy arrive in the item shop on August 7 at 8pm ET and players would be able to unlock the following things:
- Guile’s Knuckle Buster Pickaxe
- V-Trigger Vector Glider pulled from Guile’s old Street Fighter 2 stage
- A beach-ready Glistening Guile Variant and K.O. Backbling
- Cammy’s Delta Red Bowie Blade Pickaxe
- Borealis Backer Back Bling and Tactical Cammy Variant
- Alternate costume for each character
- Round 2 Loading Screen as a Bonus
Apart from this Cammy Cup will also be introduced. You’ll have the opportunity to win the Cammy Outfit and Borealis Backer Back Bling before it hits the Item. Cammy Cup will begin on August 5 and will run for three hours in each region. Winners will be able to unlock the Cammy outfit two days before the official release on 7th August.
