Epic Games have released the brand new John Wick inspired cosmetic set for Fortnite Battle Royale alongside a new limited time mode, but how much will it cost to get your hands on all the new Parabellum-inspired gear?
Dataminers found traces of the John Wick cosmetic pack on May 15, following the arrival of the v9.01 content update, and it’s now available for players to pick up in the Fortnite Item Shop.
Now, fans of the popular movie franchise John Wick can take part in a special event dedicated to the character, and even dress up as the former hitman thanks to a new cosmetic set launched in conjunction with the release of John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum.[ad name=”article2″]
How much does the John Wick cosmetics set cost?
This John Wick set includes the new outfit, as seen below, along with the Simple Sledge Pickaxe, new Back Bling and Assassin wrap. The skin itself, along with the Back Bling, costs 2,000 V-Bucks, while the Pickaxe is a further 500 and you can pick up the weapon camo for 300 – meaning a total of 2,800 total.
These new cosmetics have been revealed ahead of the release of Parabellum, the third chapter in the John Wick saga, which is set to premiere on May 17, and would cost $24.99 if you wanted the lot. This would mean purchasing the 2,500 V-Bucks pack, which also grants players an additional 300, which would cover the cost of the full pack.
The emotes though, of which there are two, will set you back a further 200 each.
New ‘Wick’s Bounty’ LTM revealed
That’s not all, either. The game’s developer also confirmed that a previously leaked LTM, ‘Wick’s Bounty’, has now been added to the game.
For those interested in that, Epic Games also posted a first-look trailer of the limited time mode on YouTube, giving fans an idea of what to expect.
“The High Table has opened a new contract,” they wrote in a website announcement. “It’s up to you to collect the bounty. Stay alive and collect gold tokens by eliminating the other bounty hunters.
“The first one to fulfill the order wins, but be careful how far ahead you get, as you will become a target for everyone else.”
Full patch notes for the game mode can be found below:
Limited Time Mode: Wick’s Bounty
Every player begins with several gold tokens. Eliminating an enemy player pays out all of the tokens the target was carrying. The first squad to reach the specified gold token count wins the match.
- Limited respawning: Each player has three lives.
- The more tokens a player is carrying, the more visible on the map they will be when moving or shooting.
- The top 3 token leaders will have their location shown on the map & compass at all times.
