Fortnite Season 5 sees Master Chief join the fight

“Wake up, Chief. We need you.”

We’ve seen Galactus, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and even the Regeneratin’ Degenerate, Deadpool in Epic Games’ uber-popular battle royale first-person-shooter — and now another defender of Earth joins the Fornite fray: the Halo series’ main protagonist, Master Chief.

The reveal video for Master Chief features Fishstick strolling into a convenience store and making his way over to the frozen drinks section for a refreshing can of whatever it is that little fishbois drink (according to the Master Chief reveal video, it’s an ice-cold can of “Sodurrr,” which he for some reason cracks open right there in the store to sip from without paying first); it’s then that Fishstick recoils in wonderment as Master Chief reveals himself from among the freezer doors and charges headlong into battle (royale).

Here are some of the official synopses regarding Master Chief’s inclusion in Fortnite:

Defender of humanity and destroyer of alien ringworlds, Master Chief arrives as the next Hunter to the Fortnite Island.

The next figure from across realities to travel through the Zero Point is none other than the Master Chief. Defender of humanity and destroyer of alien ringworlds, few are more qualified to take on the Island’s bounties and its existential Zero Point threat than John-117.

Part of the Gaming Legends series, The Master Chief set is available in the Item Shop starting December 10 at 7 PM ET. “Chief” among this set is the Master Chief Outfit: suit up in the Mjolnir Powered Assault Armor and become a Spartan-II.

Rep the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) with other items in The Master Chief set. In battle, make your landing with the UNSC Pelican Glider, a miniature Dropship 77-Troop Carrier. And cover your back with the Battle Legend Back Bling — a holographic Elite skull which serves as a trophy of the Chief’s exploits. Also, when harvesting, batter like a Brute with the Gravity Hammer Pickaxe.

You may have driven a car or a motorboat on the Island, but are you ready to tame a wild Warthog? With the traversal Lil’ Warthog Emote, take a mini-M12 Force Application Vehicle for an off-road or on-road drive. Drop into a match and finish the fight.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
