Epic Games revealed two new Fortnite skins related to Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse. As part of its upcoming crossover, Miles Morales and Miguel O’Hara (aka Spider-Man 2099) will appear. These new skins join a series of appearances available based on the iconic web-slinger. In addition, there will be an in-game event commemorating the movie’s release.
Check out the video announcement for the new Across the Spiderverse skins in Fortnite below:

The teaser shows Miles jumping out of a building, with Miguel shortly appearing after him. It seems he’s apparently pursuing him. This follows the Across the Spiderverse movie storyline, where Miles seems to be escaping from all the other heroes from different realities. More information about these in-game skins will be revealed at a later date.
It’s worth noting that Fortnite is currently running the Web Battles event, during which where players fight in teams on behalf of Miles or Miguel. Depending on which team earns the most points, players will receive either Miguel’s glare emoticon or Miles’ shocked emoticon. When we log into the game, we can also claim the Spidey 2099 logo spray. Players also get a Spider-Ham’s mallet pickaxe if their team reaches 40 points at the end of the event.
Previously Fortnite released many skins based on Spider-Man characters including the MCU version, the Green Goblin, and even Spider-Gwen. In general, crossovers are common. For example, skins based on anime series often appear. One was of Eren Yaeger from Attack on Titan.
Fortnite is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, and mobile devices. The Web Battles event is ongoing until May 22, 2023. Spider-Man: Across the Spiderverse will release in theaters worldwide on June 1, 2023.
