Fortnite is heading into Uncharted territory


Oh man, I am so tired of building sh!t

It’s too early to tell if Uncharted (2022) will be the big, blockbuster film Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions are hoping it will be. The film project has been in development since 2008 and has seen directors come and go as its actors have aged out of the role they were originally supposed to play. It’s not doing too well on Metacritic right now, but hey, plenty of films that have failed with critics have become huge hits with audiences. Look at Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. But even if it doesn’t set the box office on fire the way Tom Holland’s last film did, plenty of eyes are going to be on Nathan Drake soon as Uncharted is crossing over with Fortnite.

Beginning February 17, players will get the chance to add four skins to their closet based on the popular Sony franchise and the upcoming movie. For Nathan Drake, you’ll be able to choose from the Tom Holland version of the character or one based on his appearance in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. For Chloe Frazer, her skins will be based on her styles from the Uncharted film, where she’s portrayed by Sophia Taylor Ali, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

The Chloe skin pack will also include the Chloe’s Pack Back Bling, and players will be able to purchase additional accessories based on the franchise, including a Second-hand Saber pickaxe, Parashurama Axe pickaxe, Sully’s “New” Seaplane Glider, and an update journal emote. Not only that, but Fortnite is really getting into the spirit of Nathan Drake being a treasure hunter with treasure maps that Drake will drop leading to buried loot.

Uncharted is just the latest video game franchise to join the Fortnite foray. Other Sony properties that have hit the game include God of War and Horizon while Microsoft has got its names in the game with Halo and Gears of War. Not to mention the likes of Street Fighter and Tomb Raider. Which just begs the question, why the hell is Nintendo still holding out here? Give us that Zero Suit Samus skin, dangit!
