The court case between Epic Games and Apple rages on, while Fortnite's future on iOS devices hangs in the balance.
The first day of the actual trial is over, and internal documents from Epic Games have revealed their plans for cosmetics that would cause fans' jaws to drop to the floor if they came to be.
Epic's Planned Fortnite Cosmetics
The Verge got their hands on a copy of an internal presentation given at Epic Games that highlights Fornite's past, its growth, and includes plans for its future.
While nothing in this document is set in stone, Fortnite has seen some of its contents released, such as Neymar Jr, Lazerbeam, Master Cheif, Kratos, and more.
Other characters included in Epic's plans that have not been released include:
- Samus Aran from Nintendo's Metroid series
- Naruto Uzumaki from the popular Naruto manga and anime
- Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games
- The Bride from Kill Bill
- Snake Plissken from Escape from LA and Escape from New York
- John McClane from Die Hard
- The Rock as part of Fortnite's Icon Series
The presentation covers much more than just these items, but it is interesting to see how ambitious Epic is when it comes to licensing cosmetic items for Fortnite.
While none of this information may amount to anything in-game, fans can hope that someday some of these crossovers will make it into Fortnite.
One thing is certain, and that is when it comes to Fortnite anything is possible.
Epic vs. Apple
Epic's trial against Apple in their anti-competitive practices suit is now underway.
Epic claims that Apple holds an unfair advantage over developers with the App Store by forcing any app listed on the service to use their payment processing system and charging high rates for doing so.
Epic bypassed this system, forcing Apple to remove the Epic App, as well as Fortnite, from the App Store, leaving iOS users without a way to play the popular battle royale game.
