The ‘Alien’ Xenomorph has invaded Fornite (Ripley and her cat, too!)

The Xenomorph and Ripley from the iconic science fiction film “Alien” have landed Fortnite, but act fast. You can only get them in the battle royale game for a limited time.

The famed “Alien” characters popped into Fortnite item shop Thursday (Feb. 25) to join the games current Chapter 2: Season 5, which features the Mandalorian from “Star Wars” lore. 

The new skins could rotate out of the shop soon and are available individually or in two packs: a bundle with the Xenomorph and Ripley (with her cat Jonesy) for 2,200 V-bucks and a Space Gear bundle for 1,500 V-bucks that includes a Power Loader Arm pickaxe, Cheyenne dropship glider and the Burst Case Scenario emote showing the famous “Alien” chest burster in llama form.) But check the store carefully if you’d prefer just to buy a piece or two; 1,000 V-bucks is roughly $7.99 USD.

The Xenomorph, Fortnite said in a description of the newly arrived alien, “has been described as the perfect organism [with] its structural perfection matched only by its hostility.” But Ripley is the perfect remedy not only as the last survivor of the Nostromo, but as one of the great action heroes of our era, Fortnite reassured us. “She can take on anything on the island.”
