Fortnite is known to bring new and popular elements from pop-culture, entertainment and films to its platform. It has always been its way of keeping its platform fresh for the players. And now, after the release of John Wick Parabellum, Epic Games has brought Wick himself to Fortnite. This new character/ change has been brought to the platform through a new update.
The third part in the John Wick saga – John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum hit the theatres earlier this month and it continued on with the story of the last film. Fortnite with the new update v9.01 brings new limited time mode called the Wick’s Bounty where the players can choose to play as John Wick. The character in the game looks and feels similar to his movie counterpart. When playing in this mode, the players would need to kill the bad guys in order to collect the assassin’s bounty and rewards. But the players should take note that they will be hunted in this mode by other assassins as well to collect the bounty placed on Wick’s head. There is also an option to purchase the John Wick set from the in-game shop. The John Wick set includes the costume, sledge pickaxe, guns, lots of guns and various other items.
According to Epic Games, the makers of Fortnite, John Wick’s Bounty mode will go live once the update hits the game. In this mode, the players would start with limited gold coins which will increase when the players kill other players and collect the ‘bounty’. There is a target gold coin limit which the players and the squads have to reach. The player or the squad who reaches the target gold coins first wins the trophy.
But it should be taken into account that, the more assassin the players kill the more he will be visible on the map to other players. Other than that, the players would also be given three lives in a match. The top three players who have the highest number of gold coins will be visible to other players in the map at all times.
Every action has consequences.
