Fortnite is known for releasing exclusive skins. To accompany the new Aquaman skin, the devs are releasing the skin of his archenemy, Black Manta.
Fortnite’s new season has a lot of exciting things lined up for their gaming community. There are new vehicles, superheroes, and the latest addition, the villain Black Manta skin.
In addition, Aquaman and Captain America’s skins will soon be available in the game.
Black Manta invading Fortnite
Hypex, a well-renowned and highly reliable Fortnite leaker, announced the news. On his Twitter account, he unveiled that Aquaman’s archenemy will be coming soon to the game.
Big Shop Leak: Black Manta and the Black Manta Blades (Dualies) will be in the Item Shop on the 16th at 14:00 GMT! Aquaman (Secret BP Character) will also be releasing at that time.

Black Manta is one of the most iconic villains in the DC universe. He is a merciless underwater-based criminal who boasts of his high-tech armor.
The developers haven’t made any official announcements yet regarding Black Manta’s inclusion in the game. However, it is logical to think that the character is one way to hype fans further.
As the water slowly recedes, Fortnite will again feature a new map. A few days ago, there was a leak about a new island on the map called “The Ruins.”
Players believe that this could be Atlantis, the underwater kingdom and home of the superhero, Aquaman. According to Hypex, Black Manta, along with his infamous blades, will be available for purchase in the in-game shop on July 16, 2020.
Good news for Marvel fans
It wouldn’t be fair if Fortnite will only feature characters from the DC universe. So, Epic Games has decided to add Captain America’s skin to the game.
The first Avenger’s skin will be available in the in-game shop for 2000 V-Bucks. Players who will purchase the skin will also get his iconic shield.
The shield is not just a freebie, though, since it also serves as a pickaxe that can be used in the game. The skin will be released alongside the new Grand Salute emote. It is worth mentioning that the new emote will cost players 300 V-Bucks.
Epic Games are making sure all comic book fans are lured into Fortnite. A few months ago, Deadpool’s skins were also featured in the game. Another Avengers superhero’s outfit, Black Widow’s, was also made available as a promotion to the Avengers: Endgame movie.
Aquaman’s skin will also soon be obtained via the battle pass. With Black Manta and Captain America’s skin rolling out, Fortnite is looking a lot like a superhero party.
