Fortnite is heading to the future and the past as the T-800 and Sarah Connor from the Terminator series have now joined the game as skins. The pair arrived as part of the game’s shop update on Thursday night.
While there are plenty of versions of both the model T-800 Terminator and Sarah Connor to choose from, it seems these two aren’t necessarily chasing each other across time. Based on Sarah’s look in this outfit, it seems that Epic is using Terminator 2: Judgement Day as the basis for these skins, so these two should be more or less friends. Epic even released a brief teaser where the T-800 does the iconic, lava-covered thumbs up from the movie.
These two skins arrive in the Fortnite universe just one day after the Predator himself crash-landed into the game. They join all kinds of characters from the Mandalorian, to Master Chief, and even Kratos, all of which have been featured skins during Fortnite’s latest season. And Fortnite’s universe-hopping Zero Point season isn’t even done yet. There are still nearly six weeks left, which means we’re likely to get a few more surprising skins added to the game in the near future.
Sarah Connor and the Terminator are available now in the Fortnite in-game store. The skins are available in the “Future War” bundle, which also includes two backblings, two harvesting tools, and an emote for 2,800 V-Bucks. The two skins can also be purchased separately with Sarah Connor selling for 1,800 V-Bucks and the T-800 going for 1,500. Like all content in the Fortnite shop, these skins will only be available for a limited amount of time, though we don’t know how long that might be.
