Fortnite: will the enigmatic protagonist of Doom come to the game?

Doom Slayer possesses more than his fair share of insanity and charisma. However, he is one of the most enigmatic protagonists in the history of video games.

Fortnite, however, won’t the first to integrate or refer to Doom Slayer, as several video games have already paid homage to this classic character either via references or Easter eggs.

Doom Slayer would be a fascinating addition to Fortnite. The Twitter post claims XboxEra, a YouTube Channel, mentioned the news of Doom Slayer’s entry in Fortnite. Moreover, since it’s ShiinaBR offering this information, there’s a very good chance the rumor will turn out to be true.
