For those who don’t know, Eiver Varinsdottir is a popular character in Ubisoft’s hit game Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Earlier this month, Ezio Auditore made his way to Fortnite. He came with all his signature moves, and cosmetics along with an emote.
For a while, the rumors of Eiver featuring as a playable character in Fortnite had been doing rounds on the internet. As all these leakers have a track record of being right, we can be almost sure that the skin will drop into the store in a few days.
Along with the new skin, Fortnite has recently introduced some important changes over the last few days. To begin with, players can now play build or no-build mode. Those who liked the creative aspect of the game can now enjoy it once more. Fortnite’s lobby too has gotten a makeover and looks interesting.
