Fortnite Brings John Wick Skin Back

Fortnite Brings John Wick Skin Back

It is three years since John Wick last made an appearance in Fortnite so we should never be surprised when a long-absent skin returns. With the release of the John Wick 4 movie earlier in the year, it was expected he would be back then, but something must have held things up and now we get him for Christmas instead.

It's been three years since John Wick last showed up in Fortnite, so it shouldn't come as a shock when a long-absent skin returns. Despite the expectation for his return coinciding with the release of John Wick 4 earlier this year, some delay must have occurred, and now he's making his comeback for Christmas.

Fortnite declared his reappearance on X with the statement.

Back with a new style. The John Wick Outfit is back in the Shop!

Wick arrives as a Fortnitized version of Keanu Reeves, sporting a sleek black suit, shirt, and tie - quite a cool look, really. There's no specified duration for his presence in the Item Shop, but it's probable he'll stick around for a few days at least.

Once he's gone this time, there's no guarantee when the skin will resurface, so if you're keen on it, it's best to act promptly. Otherwise, you might be waiting another few years for your next opportunity. The skin includes the customary back bling, glider, and pickaxe, allowing players to fully equip themselves with the complete set.

Up until now, possessing the John Wick skin meant having something quite rare, but his return has altered that, so not everyone might be thrilled to see him back.

Fortnite follows a policy of rotating its available skins, instilling a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) among players, which tends to drive sales.

It's been an eventful month for the Fortnite team, with the launch of three new modes, including the immensely successful Lego Fortnite where players can embody miniaturized versions of their beloved Fortnite characters. Additionally, they've partnered with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a limited period.
