Moon Knight is the hero on everyone’s minds at the moment. The Marvel character’s live-action series just debuted a wild fourth episode on Disney+, but that isn’t the only place fans can catch Moon Knight this week.
For years now Epic Games and Marvel have teamed up to bring epic playable characters and cosmetic items to the Fortnite store. It’s not uncommon for these releases to occur alongside the arrival of a new Marvel movie or series. Earlier in the year Kate Bishop and Hawkeye skins arrived in the Fortnite item store and Spider-Man: No Way Home cosmetics became available around the same time that the movie hit cinemas.
It should come as no surprise then that Moon Knight is the latest MCU hero to make his debut in Fortnite.
Moon Knight Costumes Arrive In Fortnite
Epic Games' official Fortnite Twitter account has revealed that Marvel's Moon Knight has arrived as a playable character in the item shop.
The Moon Knight costume will cost players 1,500 V-Bucks. It appears Moon Knight's alter ego Mr. Knight is also available as an option along with his crescent dart weapons. These items cost 1,500 and 500 V-bucks respectively.
Writer James Viscardi shared an image of the costumes on his Twitter.

Fortnite's Marvel Crossovers Continue
The arrival of Moon Knight in the world of Fortnite is no surprise given the series' current popularity. Moon Knight on Disney+ marks the Marvel character’s live-action debut and now Fortnite will mark his debut in the world of video games as well. It’s also a nice touch that players can choose to play as either Moon Knight or Mr. Knight, seeing as the two personalities are both prevalent in the series.
Fortnite is no stranger to epic character collaborations. The online battle royale game has featured major characters from every major franchise from God of War to Star Wars. Adding Moon Knight to Fortnite’s repertoire of Marvel costumes seems like a logical step for Epic Games and signals that the partnership between the two studios remains strong.
Hopefully, this also means that players can expect even more Marvel Studios costumes in Fortnite in the future. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Ms. Marvel, and Thor: Love and Thunder are all Marvel projects set to release in the next few months and seem likely candidates for the Fortnite treatment.
Fortnite is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC, Nintendo Switch, and some mobile devices.
