When Epic Games began Fortnite season 8 earlier this month, we saw that Carnage was included within the new season’s Battle Pass. As that was a tie-in with the upcoming movie Venom: Let There Be Carnage, many folks assumed Venom wouldn’t be far behind. Venom is joining Fortnite today through a special bundle, and it seems he’s brought his symbiotic pal Tom Hardy alongside him.
Tom Hardy, of course, portrays Eddie Brock in Sony’s Venom films, and he’ll be facing off with Carnage within the upcoming movie. While Carnage is a component of Fortnite’s Battle Pass, it’s just like the Eddie Brock Outfit – as it’s officially called – is merely available through Fortnite‘s store.
The outfit allows you to vary between Eddie Brock and Venom by using the Venom Unleashed Emote in-game. Players can also prefer to start Venom matches by selecting the Venom style in their lockers before matches begin. Epic notes that while there’s already a Venom outfit within the game, this one is different because it specifically supported Sony’s movies’ character.
Even as a standalone purchase, the Eddie Brock Outfit comes with the Symbiote Scythe Pickaxe, but it’s also available within the Venom Bundle, which incorporates the previously-released Venom Outfit alongside some Venom-themed items. Those that already own the previously-released Venom items will get a reduction on the Venom Bundle.
You can see all of the things launching alongside the Eddie Brock Outfit within the image embedded above. Venom: Let There Be Carnage is premiering here within us on October 1st, 2021.
