As with any new season, Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7 introduces a Battle Pass packed with new items to earn, although the exact manner in which you’ll do so is different than you may have become accustomed to. Headlining the Battle Pass are two big-name crossover characters: Superman and Rick & Morty’s Rick Sanchez.
The new Battle Pass for Fortnite Season 7 includes eight new characters like most that have come before it. Epic originals like Sunny, the disgruntled rock star, and Joey, a double agent who can swap between alien and human forms with a built-in emote, make their Fortnite debuts.
Joining them is another fully customizable character, the first since Chapter 2 Season 2’s Maya. Kymera is an alien character whom players can customize all throughout the season by unlocking new Alien Artifacts. Players can lock in features such as Kymera’s head shape, eye color, skin pattern, and more. While this is the first customizable character in over a year, Fortnite did more recently offer a customizable Glider, the Season 3 ‘Brella.
Rick Sanchez of Rick and Morty fame will also make his belching debut on Apollo for Battle Pass owners, as will Superman, who represents Season 7’s midseason unlockable character. That means the Justice League’s leader will also include his own special challenges later this season. While not as recognizable as the others, a third tie-in character, Guggimon, is coming to the game as well. Guggimon is a “fashion horror artist” and a digital celebrity on platforms such as TikTok and Instagram.
For lore-chasers, the leader of the IO will make her debut as a playable character. Dr. Slone and the Imagined Order represent the opposition to the aliens invading the island this season, and no doubt her related cosmetics will help fill in some storyline gaps for the players deep into the game’s expansive lore bible.
The final Battle Pass character is Choppy, a battledroid designed by the aliens. It seems the IO-alien war will rage all during the season, with players unlocking soldiers from both sides. Along with these eight characters come new cosmetics for each of them, such as Back Bling, Gliders, and more for the first 100 tiers. Enlightened Skins likely await players who exceed that soft limit and continue climbing to tier 220, though Epic hasn’t revealed those yet.
Epic has brought back Battle Stars for this season’s challenge system, which allows players to unlock Battle Pass items in an order of their choosing. Players will no longer be bound by Epic’s default tier list, with the exception of Superman, who won’t be unlockable until later this season.
