And there is much more on the way too. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 is about to kick off with what is sure to be an epic conclusion to the Zero Point event – an event that has brought together iconic Hunters from various corners of the entertainment world and from such massive franchises. The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda got in on the action and we were delighted to get our hands on the Alien skins pack recently that allowed players to suit up as Ellen Ripley or the Xenomorph.
