Carnage is joining Fortnite’s Battle Pass as part of its brand new Chapter 2, Season 8, which launches today.
The addition of the Marvel villain’s character skin is just one of a number of changes making their way to the Battle Royale as players set out to face a brand new threat attempting to bring about the destruction of the island.
…Strange things have been happening on the Island while you were asleep.

The end of Fortnite’s last season brought with it the destruction of the alien mothership in Operation Sky Fire. As a result, the cubes that powered the ship were sent tumbling down toward the ground, causing a new wave of terror to sweep the map.
Now crashlanded, Season 8 of the Battle Royale delivers further on that threat as the cubes have begun creating a range of anomalies across the map. At various locations across the island, the anomalies themselves open up gateways to a monster-filled dimension called, ‘Sideways’ – a name that certainly feels like it gives off huge Stranger Things’ upside down vibes.
As part of the game’s monster-filled season (or just in time for Halloween), a new character skin brings Kletus Cassady’s symbiote alternate Carnage into the game as a Battle Pass reward. While fans will likely be eager to enter the island as the famed Spider-Man foe, doing so will require a little bit of work. In order to unlock Carnage, players will need to complete quests and wipe out enough players to garner the XP required to reach the skin where it is positioned at the end of this season’s Battle Pass.
Carnage’s inclusion in the game comes just weeks before the theatrical release of Tom Hardy’s Venom sequel, in which Woody Harrelson portrays the alternate symbiote as the film’s formidable villain. The character also marks the latest in a number of Marvel-based collaborations to make it into Fortnite in recent seasons. In a list that includes Wolverine, Groot, Thor, Iron Man, and Venom, Carnage should feel very at home when entering the Fortnite map for the first time.
On top of Fortnite’s latest Marvel crossover, the Season 8 Battle Pass for Fortnite features a number of other character skins that fans can unlock including Imagined Order agent Kor; Fabio Sparklemane, a shredded anthropomorphic horse-like being with rainbow coloured hair, and a paintable cartoon version of the game’s iconic mascot Fishstick known as Toona Fish.
