Michonne and Daryl Dixon hunter skins in Fortnite 

This might seem like a crossover that should have happened a long time ago when the Walking Dead was in its glory days. Better late than never, however, even though Michonne has exited the show already. What could have been a missed opportunity is now being cashed in on with these zombie-killing veterans joining Fortnite Season 5 on Dec 16th.

Hunter system will offer amazing new content

The new hunter system is primarily an idea from Epic Games to introduce an amazing line of characters on the island. This idea is incredible as it allows the developers to merge their universe with anything that fans desire.

Can players expect a fantasy universe of CDPR merging with the Fortnite island? It would be great to see Geralt or Ciri running around the map shooting people down with guns, something that has never been done before. This mechanic will allow the game to be versatile while also keeping the content fresh and enjoyable.
