Ciri and Yennefer from The Witcher 3 are coming to Fortnite at last – here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming cosmetics.
Whether you’re a fan of the books, show, or video games, all those who know The Witcher will know Ciri Fiona Elen Riannon.
The princess of Cintra, daughter of Niflgaard’s Emperor, Emhyr va Emreis (and eventual ward of Geralt of Rivia), Ciri would train to be a Witcher in her own right.
Yennefer of Vengerberg is another key player in the Witcher story, a sorceress who has her fate bound to Geralt’s.
One of Geralt’s most popular love interests and a mother figure to Ciri, it only seems right that Fortnite is completing the family with its second wave of Witcher cosmetics.
Ciri & Yennefer Release Date in Fortnite
Ciri and Yennefer arrived in the Fortnite Item Shop on June 23 at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET / 12 PM BST.
The skins will likely remain in the Item Shop until at least the release of Netflix’s The Witcher Season 3 release date on June 29.
We already have an in-game look at Ciri and Yennefer in the new Fortnite x The Witcher trailer below:
The Witcher Ciri & Yennfer Bundles in Fortnite
Ciri is available exclusively in the Ciri Pack, a bundle that comes alongside Ciri’s sword Zireael as both a Harvesting Tool, and Back Bling, as well as the Basilisk Glider.
When both the Back Bling and Pickaxe are equipped, players can unsheath Zireael straight from its sheath. What’s more, Ciri’s hands will radiate a green aura when holding her blade.
Yennefer of Vengerberg comes bundled with Yennefer’s Megascope Harvesting Tool, a Bird Skull Back Bling, and the Black Wings Emote
Ciri & Yennefer V-Bucks Price
The Ciri Pack will set you back 2000 V-Bucks in Fortnite’s Item Shop. For some reason, Ciri is not sold separately.
Yennefer of Vengerberg skin can be purchased individually for 1500 V-Bucks or packed with Yennefer’s Megascope and the Black Wings Emote for 1800 V-Bucks.
Players that just want Yen’s extra pack-ins are in luck, as Yennefer’s Megascope (800 V-Bucks) and Black Wings (300 V-Bucks) are each sold separately.
However, the Bird Skull Backbling is exclusively sold with Yennefer’s Outfit.
However, there are also some free rewards up for grabs for players that complete tasks in two unique Witcher-themed Creative islands!
Is Geralt Coming Back to Fortnite?
No, Geralt of Rivia will not be coming back to Fortnite, as he was part of the Chapter 4 Season 1 Battle Pass.
Witcher fans already had a chance to get their hands on Geralt back in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1. Back then, the iconic Witcher was that season’s ‘Secret Skin’, allowing Battle Pass owners to unlock him for no extra charge.
Thanks to some issues with quest timings, Epic Games ended up unlocking Geralt and all his Witcher-themed rewards for all players who bought the Battle Pass.
