Fortnite is getting a new skin … and his name is John Cena

The next character coming to Fortnite is none other than WWE’s John Cena. That’s right, the champ is here — or will be — on July 28 at 8 p.m. ET, to coincide with the WWE Summerslam premium event, which takes place on July 30. Cena will be available in the Fortnite item shop, and will come with multiple additional cosmetics.

It’s unclear how much the bundle will cost, but it’ll likely be around 2,000 to 2,500 V-bucks or so based on previous Fortnite pricing.

There will be two John Cena styles available as part of the bundle: The Ring Gear style and one with him wearing his famous Never Give Up t-shirt from his entrances. In addition, he’ll come with a WWE Championship back bling, the Five Digit Slapper pickaxe, and a U Can’t C Me emote.

Though Cena is famous for playing Peacemaker in The Suicide Squad, he, of course, started his career as a WWE superstar, first debuting in 2002. He eventually became the face of the company, earning 16 championships throughout his lengthy career. Cena doesn’t wrestle as much anymore, but he does make infrequent WWE appearances, typically during premium events.

Fortnite isn’t the only game getting a WWE crossover to promote Summerslam. On July 28, Rocket League will get Roman Reigns and John Cena-themed cars, and Fall Guys will feature outfits based on Asuka, Xavier Woods, and The Undertaker on the same day.

Fortnite is currently in its third season of Chapter 3, which includes a summertime theme, along with plenty of new character skins to unlock, such as Darth Vader and Indiana Jones.

Announced Wednesday afternoon — at the same time as it was announced that ESPN would be available as a standalone subscription in 2025 —  this partnership follows a $1.5 billion investment in Epic Games by Disney. They companies now plan to work together over several years to create this experience connected to Fortnite, which Disney says will “offer a multitude of opportunities for consumers to play, watch, shop and engage with content, characters and stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Avatar, and more.”

Fortnite’s new modes are fun, but don’t sleep on Battle Royale’s great update

Fortnite is literally the gift that keeps on giving. With so many updates bringing big changes to the game, I don't blame anyone that can no longer keep up with the live-service juggernaut. How could you after Epic recently added a full Rocket League spinoff, a recreation of Rock Band, and a Minecraft-like Lego adventure to the mix? For me, though, those can't completely overshadow the classic Battle Royale playlist that made Fortnite such a hit in the first place -- especially since that mode got some great updates of its own in its latest chapter.

All Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite
A lego character holding a basket with a fruit.

Most things in Lego Fortnite are grounded in reality -- well, as much as they can be in a game where you are a little Lego man running around collecting resources and building entire villages by yourself. You slowly accumulate better gear as you craft new items and upgrade your existing facilities so you can venture further out and face tougher challenges.

There's some equipment that works a bit differently, namely your Trinkets and Charms. These little doodads can be crafted as you collect specific resources, they come in a range of rarities, and all of them give your character a specific buff that can be placed on your armor to add to your character. There's a lot of them out there to find and craft, so we've cataloged all the Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite and what they do.
