Deadpool’s arrival in the popular Fortnite video game has been teased ever since the start of Chapter 2 Season 2 with his appearance in the season trailer, his small in-game presence within the menu, and his mini weekly challenges.
After weeks of waiting, the Marvel character is finally ready to debut properly within Fortnite today with a major presence on the map and the opportunity to unlock at least two Deadpool skins.
Starting tomorrow, I’M crashing this party. There’ll be music, tacos, and a whole lotta Deadpool.

Exact details are still unknown but several leaks have shown that the character will be getting both his masked and unmasked appearances, some new weapons, and a new song to unlock by visiting his recently obtained yacht.
Deadpool’s addition to Fortnite right now is a rather odd one as tie-ins like this are usually timed to coincide with a major promotional push for a movie or other product. A load of Star Wars content was added to Fortnite in December around the release of The Rise of Skywalker for example.
