Fortnite x Creed III Collab is Now Live
Adonis Creed appears in the popular battle royale game. How long will the collab last?
Fortnite is known for collaborating with various franchises, from anime to live-action films. With the recent release of Creed III, Epic Games has partnered with the franchise. Players can use Adonis Creed on their Fortnite accounts once the collaboration goes live. What can we expect from the upcoming crossover?
Fortnite x Creed III
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 is about to finish its current run, so it would be a fitting end to pull off some last-minute surprises in the game. The slug-fest film introduces Adonis Creed into the game just a few days after the movie’s release. Players can buy the skin in the Fortnite Item Shop and other cosmetic items.
The collaboration event will only feature the titular character, so those hoping to see Damian Anderson shouldn’t get their hopes up. The Creed III bundle will be available starting March 2. Here are all the available Cosmetics from the collab:
- Adonis Creed Outfit (including Bionic Creed Alternate Style with Heavy Bag Backbling) for 1800 V-Bucks
- Knockout Pickaxe for 800 V-Bucks
- Creed’s Gloves Spray
- Target Training Emote for 300 V-Bucks
There is no indication of how long the Creed items will be available in the store. It is safe to assume that these offers will last until the end of the current season, but players looking to get the whole ensemble shouldn’t waste much time and buy them as soon as possible.
Creed III Quest
Aside from the new cosmetics, new quests will be available for the event. These tasks will provide players with extra exp during the whole collaboration. Here are all the missions during this crossover:
- Catch a Chicken
- Gather Slap Juice in three different games
- Do 200 melee damage against opponents
- Reach the top 25 remaining during one match
- Recover health using bandages three times
- Throw Off-Road tiles and flip an overturned vehicle twice
- Cover a 500m travel distance by sprinting or sliding in a single game.
Each task will reward players with 20,000 XP, totaling to 140,000 XP. This bonus EXP benefits those who still need to finish grinding their Seasonal Battle Passes. You can also acquire Creed’s Glove Spray for free during the event. You must only complete five out of seven quests to get the spray. These quests are only available until March 9.
How to Get the Adonis Creed Skin for Free
You may have come too late if you are looking for ways to get the collab items for free. The only way to acquire the Creed III set was to participate in the Creed Cup last March 1. During the event, players were required to rack up a certain number of points depending on their placement in the game. Since the Creed Cup has passed, there are only other ways of acquiring the collaboration set by buying them from the store.
The Creed Trilogy
The Creed films are spin-offs from the famous Rocky series, which also exists in the same universe. The trilogy focuses on the life and journey of Adonis Creed, the son of Apollo Creed, who died in the original franchise. Michael B. Jordan’s character has become so popular that all three films related to him have been an overall success.
Fortnite’s collaboration is tied explicitly to the Creed III film. The movie sees the return of Adonis Creed, who is set to go head-to-head with his childhood friend Damian Anderson played by Jonathan Majors. This is also the first movie in the Rocky universe where Sylvester Stalone’s Rocky Balboa does not appear.
Some fans hoped that Major’s character would also appear during the Fortnite collaboration since his version of Kang the Conqueror didn’t make the cut in the recent Ant-Man crossover. While only Creed was included in this event, one of Jonathan Major’s characters might eventually enter the game’s cosmetic shop.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 is about to wrap up, so players should start finishing their battle passes. There will probably be no more last-second surprises after the recent Creed crossover. Players who are fans of the franchise should get the set for their Fortnite accounts before it goes into the daily rotation in the shop.
