Marvel’s Loki will be a playable skin in ‘Fortnite’ this July

This is anything but low-key isn’t it?

Loki will be playable in Fortnite starting on July 1 through the game’s July Crew Pack.

Active Fortnite Crew members will receive the Loki Laufeyson Outfit, Loki’s Cape Back Bling, Loki’s Scepter Pickaxe, a Chitauri Chariot Glider and Loki’s Welcoming Loading Screen. None of these items can be obtained through regular purchases, with a monthly Fortnite Crew subscription being the only way to obtain them.

The reveal was shown off in a trailer on the Fortnite YouTube channel, which you can see below.
