The vibrant world of Fortnite is set to host two renowned faces from The Witcher 3, as Ciri and Yennefer get ready to set foot on this popular battle royale territory. This announcement has lifted the veil off the chatter around a much-anticipated alliance between Fortnite and The Witcher franchise, infusing a wave of enthusiasm among the game’s community as well as The Witcher’s ardent followers.
Fortnite’s History of High-profile Collaborations
Fortnite, with its rich history of joining forces with famous brands, from the grandeur of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the pulsating vibes of Marshmello, has always provided its player base with interesting, thematic content.
Recently, Fortnite fans got a taste of the iconic Nike style in the Airphoria event, packed with sporty gameplay elements and a plethora of unique cosmetics and collectibles, reminiscent of the NBA Creative Hub Challenge from 2021. Now, leaving the sports arena behind, Fortnite is ready to embrace the mystical universe of The Witcher.
A Tale of Two Tempests: Fortnite Welcomes Ciri and Yennefer
The latest collaborative endeavour, intriguingly named “A Tale of Two Tempests”, is all set to bring The Witcher 3’s Ciri and Yennefer to the Fortnite landscape. As part of the collaboration, players can look forward to exclusive character skins, including Ciri’s Zireael sword doubling as a harvesting tool and a piece of back bling, and a spectacular Basilisk Glider.
Yennefer’s character bundle promises an enchanting Megascope Harvesting Tool, the eerie Bird Skull Back Bling, and the captivating Black Wings Emote. These Witcher-themed goodies will be available from June 23rd at 12 PM (noon) UK time/7 AM ET, although Fortnite has yet to specify the duration of their stay in the Item Shop.
The timing of this alliance suggests it’s a promotional strategy to fan the flames of excitement for the upcoming season of Netflix’s The Witcher, scheduled for June 29th. Fortnite previously welcomed Geralt into its midst as part of the Chapter 4 Season 1 Battle Pass, just weeks after CD Projekt Red rolled out a next-gen update for The Witcher 3, offering a unique set of Geralt-related items.
The Witcher franchise, already a hot property, could get a considerable boost with this new venture. But only time will tell if this cross-pollination will successfully boost Netflix’s series, especially considering Henry Cavill’s exit from his role as Geralt. Regardless, Fortnite enthusiasts, particularly those with a liking for The Witcher, would certainly welcome this integration.
Fortnite is accessible on Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Let the Witcher saga unravel in Fortnite’s eccentric world!
