Finally, anyone who picks up the Moon Knight outfit also has the option to equip the Mr. Knight Style, which swaps out the hero’s fighting attire for a more sophisticated look.

Moon Knight is a Marvel character that first appeared in a 1975 comic, but this year the character has been introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) via a Disney+ show of the same name.

NME‘s review of Moon Knight gave the show five stars, praising Oscar Isaac‘s performance of the superhero and described it as “a grandstand character-piece dressed up as a swashbuckler.”

Moon Knight is far from the first Marvel hero to arrive in Fortnite. Well-known for its crossover content, the battle royale has already been graced by Spider-Man, Loki, Black Panther and Captain Marvel.

This month, Fortnite has been particularly busy. After launching a permanent no-build mode for players who enjoyed the feature’s temporary removal, Epic Games has since worked with Coachella to add “music-reactive” outfits to the game.

The company also announced that the Fortnite community has raised £109million in support of Ukraine, and the funds will be split between several charities working to support victims of Russia’s invasion.

In other gaming news, Hunt: Showdown‘s next update will give zombies guns, and will also add new daily quests for players to tackle.
