Epic Game announces that new skin will join John Wick. Also known as Sofia, Halle Berry will enter the world of Fortnite Battle Royale to accompany Keanu Reeves in his latest John Wick adventure.
The legendary John Wick skin is said to be part of the marketing strategy for John Wick 3: Parabellum that was released last May 16. However, one famous skin in Fortnite called “The Reaper” has been mistakenly identified as John Wick‘s skin.
According to Pro Game Guides, players who own the Reaper’s skin are quite disappointed with the outcome of the appearance and want the real John Wick‘s look. But due to popular demand, the game has now an official John Wick skin version that bears the name and looks exactly like Keanu Reeves who portrays the character in the movie.
The skin can be bought in the item shop for 2,000 V-Bucks. A month after the release of John Wick‘s skin, which draws so much attention from the public, PC Game announces another skin to complement the latter.
Epic Games’ developer saw the need to create another skin for their female players, so there goes Sofia in a Halle Berry inspired aura. Although the company’s primary goal is to complete the John Wick set, Sofia’s prelaunch became a hit not just for female players but to the males as well.
Now, players can have someone to accompany John in a ruthlessly colorful world of Fortnite. Sofia is a fellow assassin and a pal, played by Halle Berry in the movie John Wick 3. Her outfit is readily available in the item shop, alongside John’s, and can be purchased together with her partner’s skin and his themed gears.
Instead of playing as a villain, Halle Berry inspired look known as “Sofia” will portray the role of an assassin’s assassin. Together with John Wick, they are set to conquer the world full of villains in the Fortnite battle games.
Players who are interested in buying Sofia’s skin needs to pay 1,500 V-Bucks, along with her attachments, to accompany the entire John Wick set. It is said that if players already own a John Wick‘s skin, it is highly recommended to purchase Sofia’s since the game can be played well with the duo/partner.
These are the items that come along when players purchase the Sofia skin. BACK BLING: GUN BAG is a portable medium-size bag which is designed to accommodate all sorts of guns used by Sofia to kill her targets.
Aside from that, players can also purchase John Wick‘s set to get along with Sofia’s. These are the Glider: One Shot, Harvesting Tool: Simple Sledge, and Wrap: Boogeyman. Prices and information for these items can only be viewed at Fortnite‘s official shop.
Fortnite is an online video game developed by Epic Games and released in 2017. It has three distinct game mode versions that share the same general gameplay and game engine, namely: Fortnite: Save the World, Fortnite Battle Royale, and Fortnite Creative. The first two modes were launched in 2017 while Fortnite Creative was released in December 2018.
While Save the World and Creative have been successful for Epic Games, Fortnite Battle Royale became a resounding success which lures more than 125 million players in less than a year and earns hundreds of millions per month. Since then, it has become a cultural phenomenon.
Today, Fortnite is creating a massive name in the gaming business, and the release of the John Wick skin was dubbed to be very successful. As part of the company’s goal to dominate the industry, Sofia has been launched to strengthen Wick’s collection and create an impact on the players’ perspective.
Sofia is an “Epic skin” and part of the John Wick Collection. She has been rumored initially to accompany John Wick on the first release of Wick’s Bounty but was never released in the shop. Others thought that she would be a part of the LTM, but it turns out she was skin and was finally released during the 14 Days of Summer Fortnite Event.
However, Sofia is an exclusive character of Fortnite. You can only acquire her once you’ve successfully purchased the John Wick skin collection. However, the said collection won’t unlock until you’ve have reached the end of the season 3 Battle Pass.
Fortnite‘s current Battle Pass is composed of 100 tiers that players need to accomplish to earn rewards. Epic Games said that would get them almost 75-150 hours of play to end the battle. There is no known shortcut to getting the John Wick Skin collection, including Sofia’s.
But still, the good news is, John Wick now has someone to fight the battle with. In Halle Berry’s words, “See you soon, Mr. Wick.”
