There are also rumours that Master Chief from the famous Halo series from Microsoft will also make an appearance in Fortnite in the months to come.

Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite make sure they keep upgrading the game with such characters and skins to keep the gameplay engaging and gamers excited.
Despite not being a PlayStation exclusive, there is one exclusive thing about Fortnite’s Kratos. If you play a match as Kratos on the PlayStation 5 you’ll unlock the armored Kratos skin.
