Bloodsport is officially the next major pop culture collab coming to Fortnite.
In preparation for The Suicide Squad, the upcoming film which releases in theaters on Aug. 6, yet another DC Comics supervillain is getting ready to make its debut on the battle island.
Bloodsport Fortnite Release Date Announced
As announced by Epic Games, The Suicide Squad director James Gunn and Bloodsport's actor himself, Idris Elba, the Vietnam draft evader turned crazed contract killer will be officially going live in the Fortnite Item Shop on Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. ET.
Dressed in black and bronze, as shown in Fortnite's Bloodsport Skin Reveal trailer, the in-game reincarnation of the character's outfit looks as true to its source as ever. If there's one thing that Fortnite remains to be the best in gaming at, it's their attention to detail with cosmetics, and it appears Bloodsport will be no exception.
With a sparring emote, a sword harvesting tool, a backpack/hamster backbling and a matching black and bronze weapon wrap, expect Bloodsport's base skin to be listed at around 1,500 V-Bucks, with his bundle going for around 2,200 V-Bucks.
At the time of writing, Fortnite has yet to announce any special tournament that would reward top-placing players with the new skin, so it’s pretty safe to assume that the only way to acquire Bloodsport is by purchasing him with V-Bucks.
