Fortnite gamers don’t have long to wait until they can start trying to unlock the new Ghost Rider skin. Announced as the latest addition to the Marvel Knockout Super Series, Johnny Blaze will be whipping his way onto the Battle Royale scene this week. For those who might have missed it, the Marvel Knockout Series is a spin on Operation: Knockout that sees a team of trios utilize super-powers to be the best squad in the tournament bracket.
Fortnite fans will need to battle against their foes in a 4-round knockout fight, with each round seeing their team awarded a different set of powers to battle opponents with mirrored abilities.
A message from Epic Games adds: “The game mode played during a given Ghost Rider Cup session will be Marvel Knockout. Event sessions will last approximately three (3) hours. Teams may participate in a maximum of ten (10) matches during a session unless otherwise indicated in-game.
“Teams will earn points based on the scoring system listed in Sections 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 unless otherwise indicated in-game. Matches for a session will count only if the match begins before such session window closes.”
WHEN IS GHOST RIDER COMING TO FORTNITE?
Developers Epic Games has confirmed that the Ghost Rider Cup will be starting on Wednesday, November 4, 2020.
