Deadpool and the X-Force Mutants Have Invaded Fortnite

After making their bawdy, bloody introduction in Fox’s Deadpool 2, a handful of classic members of Marvel’s X-Force are dropping into Fortnite of all places and they’re all packing some serious heat.


Beginning today, Deadpool, Domino, Cable, and Psylocke will all become available as playable characters as part of an X-Force-themed bundle meant to build out on the game’s spy-centric ongoing second season. It’s not the first time Marvel and one of the biggest video games on the planet have joined forces—after all, there was the absurdity that was Avengers: Endgame not just getting a themed event in Fortnite, but actually showing up in the movie as well.

And, of course, because this is Fortnite we’re talking about, there’s plenty more to buy if you actually want to deck each of these characters out with their full range of weapons and other accessories that give them their full range of signature attacks

Fortnite isn’t likely to give you a particularly deep (or especially X-Men-forward) story experience compared to something like Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. But for any diehard Fortnite players who find themselves stuck inside and jonesing for some Marvel-esque mayhem, this might be just the thing to kick off the weekend right.

It totally checks out thatPool, Cable and Domino would run around in fortnite with big-ass guns shooting each other. Psylocke, though? She’s never been the type to resort to using big guns or anything like that.
I know he isn’t a classic X-Force character, but Bishop would’ve been a much better choice. Or hell, Shatterstar used guns every once in a while, right?
I get that this is just a promotion for a video game, but still.
