Fortnite adds the Master Chief and Blood Gulch map

By Sean Carey,
After several leaks and rumours, the Master Chief has now been confirmed for Fortnite and is available to purchase now as a skin in the battle royale game.


The Master Chief skin can be purchased from Fortnite's in-game item shop either in a bundle of cosmetics or on its own. The Master Chief Bundle, which includes the Master Chief skin, a Gravity Hammer pick-axe, USNC Pelican glider and a Warthog emote will set you back 2,600 V-Bucks. If you want just the Chief on his lonesome, you'll be looking at 1,500 V-Bucks.

Microsoft also announced that Fortnite players who complete a match in the game on an Xbox Series X|S after purchasing the Master Chief skin will unlock a special Matte Black version of the Halo protagonist.

The legendary Blood Gulch multiplayer map, with a special Capture the Flag game mode, has also been recreated in Fortnite and will be available to play for a limited time.

Fortnite's newest season has just begun. Chapter 2 Season 5 introduced several new areas to the map, a new bounty and in-game currency system, more Mythical Weapons, and a new battle pass where players can unlock a Mandalorian skin and his little pal, Baby Yoda.

The Master Chief Bundle is available now

In other crossover news, the Quadra Turbo-R V-Tech from Cyberpunk 2077 is heading to Forza Horizon 4.
