Black Manta dives into Fortnite, Atlantis teased in new promo
Aquaman’s arch-enemy, Black Manta, is now available as a skin in Fortnite and it’s suspected that Atlantis itself is on the way.
Only a couple of weeks ago, Fortnite players were able to purchase a skin of Marvel’s star spangled, all-American superhero Captain America.
Today, though, it’s back to DC as this week is not only the moment that players can finally acquire the Aquaman skin, but his greatest enemy, Black Manta, is in the game too. And much like Aquaman, his appearance is based on the live action movie.
Unlike the Aquaman skin, you don’t need to complete any sort of challenge. Black Manta is available to buy in the in-game shop, where he costs 1,500 V-Bucks.
His skin also comes with the Manta Pack, which is a backpack designed to resemble his back armour, and his twin Manta Blades, which act as harvesting tools. Sadly, it doesn’t look like he can shoot out lasers from his helmet like he usually does.
A new promotional image from Epic Games also seems to hint at the inclusion of Aquaman’s kingdom of Atlantis as a new location. While the focus of the image is on Aquaman himself and his two guards, you can also see gold plated buildings that are most likely meant to be Atlantis.
A previous datamine revealed that a Ruins area will be added at some point, which many suspect is meant to be Atlantis. And with the water levels beginning to recede, it’s only a matter of time until we see it.
Fortnite is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
