To celebrate the upcoming release of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Miles Morales will be swinging into Fortnite on May 23.
Epic Games shared a short video announcing the update on Fortnite’s official Twitter account. The teaser shows Morales’ Spider-Man bursting through a skyscraper and swinging out of sight. Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099 then steps forward and peers out of the smashed window.
It’s Miles!! And he brought… a friend?

The two new character skins will arrive in Fortnite with the next update. They will be available to purchase from the in-game item store, giving players a chance to pick them up and swing into action before the hotly anticipated Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse arrives in theaters.
Miguel showed up in a post-credits scene for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The latest trailer for the sequel gave us a better look at the character, who appears to have assumed the role of the movie’s central antagonist, as hundreds of Spideys join the fight against him.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse releases in theaters on June 2 and will reportedly clock in as the longest animated film ever from a major Hollywood studio. The movie is also looking to “wow” audiences with six major art styles, including one from Spider-Man 2099’s Nueva York.
