The portal in question is named "SmallFry". All though this isn't a direct relation to Ant-Man, it still seems like Epic are hinting at something...

Release Date

No release date right now, but it is likely soon!

Ant-man skin details have been found in Fortnite’s code, but is encrypted so we don’t yet know what he looks like!

But we also have a Legacy related to the Ant-Man, to land on him.

Exactly what this means for players hoping to unlock Squish, but perhaps we’ll all of his regular, tiny and giant forms? 

It would be hard to land on something that is only player size.

Skin Price

To purchase the skin, you'll need 1,800 V-Bucks, a pretty good price for the items you get.

If you just want to get the skin and backbling alone, you'll only need to pay 1,500 V-Bucks.

Back Bling

The Backbling is one of the ants from the Ant-Man film.

This is a much better skin than something simple like a Pym particle vial!

Glider

Our guess would be a flying ant like Ant-Thony from the MCU films!

That would be rad.

Harvest Tool

We aren’t sure what tool Ant-Man would have. 

Perhaps a sabre like Iron Man’s but made out of Pym Particles?

More likely it’ll be ant-related somehow but we aren’t too sure.

Punch Card Challenges

We could see some Ant-Man power challenges but for now, there is just a Legacy.

Squish requires you to land on ANt-Man, what that means we don’t yet know!

Abilities

Ant-Man can grow and shrink in the comics, we would love to see that kind of power in Fortnite!

We probably won’t but it’d be amazing!
