As Season 5 rolls on, Epic Games has decided to continue to treat Marvel fans to new content. The new Marvel: Royalty and Warriors Pack makes its way to the Fortnite item shop, bringing Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and future big-screen villain Taskmaster into the fray. Needless to say, the battle royale extravaganza just got even more epic.
In a recent reveal, in which Epic Games paid tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. We also saw a closer look following this at both Taskmaster and Captain Marvel, with the former seeming to represent his comic book form which is sure to please fans.

So what’s included in the pack? You can expect to see a wealth of items based on the new Marvel characters, ranging from pickaxes, back bling, gliders, and more. If you are looking to get the pack, then it is going to set you back.
How to Get The Royalty and Warriors Pack
When it comes to new items in the Fortnite item shop, we have seen several quirky methods on unlocking cosmetics where Marvel characters are concerned.
For example, remember when Deadpool first released and we had many tasks and scenarios to complete? That isn’t so much the case here with the Royalty and Warriors Pack.
In fact, the only real challenge here is having to pay $24.99 for it. This isn’t always the practice that Epic has gone for either. Usually, we see them going for an approach that uses V-Bucks, which by the way can also be generated with the help of V-Bucks Generator.
The downside to this is that, unfortunately, it means that we won’t be able to buy the Taskmaster, Captain Marvel, or Black Panther skin separately, nor will any of their cosmetics be available individually either.
That isn’t to say that we will never be allowed to buy these cosmetics separately. Surely there will come a time where Epic will give us the chance to explore these characters individually rather than have to purchase them as a set.
However, when exactly this would be is going to be anyone’s guess. This is where speculation and educated guesses can come in.
After all, you would be forgiven in guessing that when the next entry into each character’s individual franchises is released, then we would get to see the option of being able to play as each of these characters on their own to generate more hype around them.
Then again, if they will be a general purchase for a Marvel fan, you can see why they have been put in a pack together.
Still, whatever Epic’s plans are for the pack in the future, you can rest assured that if you are a Marvel fanatic and you are savvy with the whole battle royale thing that Fortnite has going for it, then there is always going to be plenty for you to look forward to.
What it does show is the game’s creators having the passion to not only keep the content fresh in Fortnite but also the fact that we keep getting to see new introductions from other franchises.
There are so many different crossovers to enjoy in Fortnite that we often forget just how many have, in fact, graced the battlefield over time.
Yes, it does feel like a lot of this has been very Marvel-focused in recent years, what with the success of The Avengers franchise amongst other characters from the MCU that have graced the title.
It isn’t just Marvel either, as we have some fascinating characters coming from different games two. The most notable additions as of late include Halo’s Master Chief and God of War’s Kratos.
It wasn’t just a surprise to see them in the game in the sense that they aren’t really related to Fortnite in any way, shape, or form, but the two characters have been exclusive to their respective platforms in the games that they are a part of up until now.
That isn’t all, either. We have also seen the critically acclaimed Mandalorian make his way into Fortnite as of late.
A few years later, we even had John Wick as part of the game when that franchise was peaking in popularity. These are just a couple of examples besides the others that Epic Games has used to implement more fun and freedom to Fortnite.
If the pack is something you would enjoy, then head on over to the Fortnite item shop today. If you would rather buy the skins individually, then you may be in for quite a wait before that happens, though we don’t know just exactly how long that wait would actually be.
