As part of a cross-promotion for the upcoming Dead Space remake, Isaac Clarke has dropped into Fortnite. 

As Fortnite has cameos from every popular franchise you could imagine, it’s almost easier to name those who’ve not appeared in the game yet. 

The battle royale has also featured a fair number of familiar faces from other video games, such as Ezio from Assassin’s Creed, Lara Croft as well as Chun-Li and Ryu from Street Fighter, among others. 

Now, a far more sinister-looking bundle has been added to the item shop, as Fortnite has officially welcomed Dead Space’s Isaac Clarke. 

This has been a highly anticipated collaboration, as leakers caught wind of it at the start of December, even revealing the exact date it would be released. 

The bundle, named Strange Transmissions Quest Pack, arrives in Fortnite just days ahead of the Dead Space remake launch on Friday, January 27. 

As you would expect, apart from featuring Isaac Clarke as a skin, it also comes with cosmetics identical to the weapons he uses to survive and fight off Necromorphs.

You’ll find a health-tracking back bling that reacts to Isaac taking damage – just as it happens in the Dead Space series. 

There’s also another back bling which is a small model of the USG Ishimura, as well as a pickaxe inspired by the engineer’s plasma cutter  

Completing the Strange Transmissions quests will reward you with 1,500 V-Bucks which you can always use toward your next pack or other in-game items. 

“Make us whole again Isaac…”

Grab the Strange Transmissions Quest Pack now which includes:
-Isaac Clarke Outfit 🚀
-Two Back Blings and a Pickaxe ⛏️
-Quests to earn up to 1,500 V-Bucks 🎉

You can purchase the Dead Space bundle only with real money and it will cost you £9.99 to get in Isaac’s shoes (or space suit, in this case). 

Dead Space is not the only horror game that has been adapted for Fortnite, as Chris Redfield from Resident Evil was also added to the game some seasons ago.
