Keanu Reeves is coming to the battle royale shooter, for real this time.
The latest installment of the action film franchise John Wick is due out soon, and the series is also expanding out to video games with a strategy title starring the grizzled assassin coming soon to PC. But it seems that’s not the only game Mr. Wick is coming to, as the character is apparently coming to Fortnite in a limited time event as well. And no, we aren’t talking The Reaper- it seems the man himself is coming to get the job done.
Some eagle eyed fans on Reddit noticed what looked to be Wick’s house being added to the Paradise Palms map, which prompted several leakers to show off some datamined material showing the event is coming. As you can see below, the character model is based on John Wick. Unlike a previous season’s character skin called The Reaper, this actually bears resemblance to Keanu Reeves, the actor who portrays Wick. It also seems a gold token that looks like the currency of assassinations in the films will also be coming with him in some form.
Fortnite is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, and mobile devices.
