The model and Dune actress is now a skin in the game

One of the great sagas of science fiction literature is Dune. Its boom was such that it received a film adaptation in the 80s by the hand of David Lynch and now returns to the limelight under the direction of Denis Villeneuve. Therefore, Epic Games cannot miss the opportunity to introduce its characters in the Fortnite universe. The new Dune movie has been the inspiration for a recent release of outfits and masks in the popular Fortnite video game. Supporting platforms such as Xbox and PlayStation, Windows held the launch yesterday morning and many fans couldn’t be more excited.

Outfits inspired by Timothee Chalamet and Paul Atreides and Zendaya’s Chani, a sand walking emoticon, an Ornithopter glider, and two spikes are among the new DLC for Dune. Players can purchase most of these Dune products individually; however, those who choose to purchase the full package will also be granted a special loading screen.

Fortnite is one of the most relevant video games in the world today, which has led it to have major collaborations with other big-name franchises such as Street Fighter, Marvel’s Shang-Chi, Suicide Squad, Superman, Rick and Morty, and many more. The latest to join this trend has been Dune. Interestingly, it has also been reported that DC Comics, Venom 2, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Ariana Grande and Universal Classic Monsters will have special promotions and are currently active in the famous video game.

Dune is recognized for being the newest film to contain the most updated version of the book series that is completely unrelated to the previous live-action adaptations. Many regions of the world were able to enjoy its release last month; however, its official debut in theaters and on HBO Max in the US will not be until tomorrow.
