Gears of War warriors Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz are coming to Fortnite! The Gears of War characters were revealed via a leak that confirmed their arrival during Chapter 3. While details remained insufficient, Epic Games has today confirmed their arrival via the Epic Games official website.
Marcus Fenix and Kait Diaz will be available on the Fortnite item shop starting today, codename Delta-One. The set items include the following:
