Fortnite’s Season 5 is all about hunters. The battle pass includes the Mandalorian and other unlockable characters from the Fortnite universe that are supposed to be the some of the world’s greatest hunters. It looks like God of War’s Kratos is joining their ranks sometime soon.
Popular Fortnite leaker HypeX tweeted out an image of Kratos, saying that he’ll be added to the game soon. It hasn’t been confirmed by Epic Games yet, but HypeX has a notable track record of leaking credible Fortnite news early.

More hunters are supposed to be added as Season 5 plays out, so Kratos could be added as part of a new set of characters at any point in the season. He will most likely be available in the item shop for around $20 (with a back bling and other cosmetics included). That’s been the price of other recent characters like Ghost Rider, Venom, and Daredevil.
Sony, the owner of the God of War franchise, invested $250 million for a minority stake in Epic Games earlier this year, according to a GamesBeat report. Sony’s investment will allow the two to “create unique experiences for consumers and creators,” GamesBeat said.
Fortnite players have been digging into all the new content that Season 5 has brought to the game. There’s a new bounty system, dozens of NPCs spread across the map, and even a new way to discreetly travel throughout parts of the map.
