Our grandson is all about the Fortnite character skins. He’s always wanting more Vbucks to buy more skins and dance moves and whatever other virtual assets that make you all fancy looking inside the game.
Can honestly say despite gaming for 40+ years that I’ve never bought character skins. I have bought some mounts and expansion quests and extra bank space in MMORPG, but not just design skins.
Fortnite season 5 continues to roll on with a ludicrous list of tie-in skins from various Hollywood and gaming universes. Previously, we saw Arnold Schwarzenegger’s alien nemesis the Predator arrive, and now Arnie himself (or at least his exoskeleton) is joining the fray. Yup, you can now buy a Terminator skin in the Fortnite item shop.Fortnite item shop: The Terminator and Sarah Connor arrive | PC Gamer
Last mentioned The Terminator appeared in Mortal Kombat (see: Mortal Kombat 11 Shows Love to 80s Action Film Stars: Robocop, Terminator and Rambo), and recently The Predator was available in Fortnite, but now so is the T-800 Terminator and Sarah Connor.
Surprisingly, I’m the one who mentioned to our grandson the Terminator was coming to Fortnite. So maybe it’s not showing yet? It’s coming soon? I don’t know, don’t play Fortnite, but I do find it interesting that The Terminator is making appearances in multiple games. I kind of liked fighting as the Terminator in Mortal Kombat. It’s a little different unlocking characters to fight against or with in a fighting game. These characters have different skillsets and might be able to provide an advantage.
Purely cosmetic Terminator sounds cool, but isn’t worth 2,800 Vbucks, which I think is like $25 USD.
Would/do you buy Fortnite cosmetic skins? Would you buy them in other games?
