Scarlet Witch Joins Fortnite As Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Arrives in Theaters

In celebration of the theatrical release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Fortnite has announced that Scarlet Witch is now available in the game’s Item Shop.

Scarlet Witch, who is also known as Wanda Maximoff, joins Doctor Strange, who was introduced as part of Fortnite’s Chapter 3: Season 2 Battle Pass. She also comes complete with a new Back Bling, Pickaxe, and Loading Screen.

More details of Scarlet Witch’s arrival were revealed by The Fortnite Team, including that the Scarlet Witch Outfit comes packaged with Wanda’s Clock Back Bling. Both the Outfit and the Back Bling light up with Chaos Magic when you inflict damage on your opponents. If you aren’t a fan of the effect, you can always change it by switching to her alt style.

Her Chaos Hand Axe Pickaxe, which is described as a “tangible construct of magic energy,” is available as a separate purchase alongside the Psychic Energy Manipulation Emote. As always, even though these are meant for Scarlet Witch, they can be used with any Outfit.

While the items can be purchased individually, fans that wish to own all of them can buy the Scarlet Witch Bundle to gain access to all the items and the Through the Mirror Dimension Loading Screen.

As previously mentioned, Scarlet Witch joins Fortnite as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives in theaters. For more, be sure to check out our review, Doctor Strange’s Story So Far, and our expainer of the post-credits and ending of the latest MCU film.
