Master Chief is available in Fortnite right now, but the beloved Halo hero is not the only new addition to Epic Games’ big shooter.

An exclusive skin is available for Xbox Series X owners. If you opt for the Master Chief while playing on Xbox Series X, you will unlock a special black matte armour skin.

Along with the legendary Master Chief you’ll also be able to buy a UNSC Pelican Glider, a Gravity Hammer Pickaxe and an emote that lets you drive around in a cute little Warthog.

Each of the Halo inspired cosmetic items is available individually or as a bundle for 2600 V-Bucks right now.

Additionally a Halo themed Blood Gulch map will also be playable in Fortnite’s Creative Mode – which includes being able to play Capture the Flag where you can recreate some classic Red vs Blue moments.

However that is not all because both Daryl Dixon and Michonne from The Walking Dead will be available as skins in Fortnite as new Hunters from December 16th.
