Fortnite is no stranger to crossover events with popular franchises, and the latest one to join the battle royale game is The Witcher. Fans of the fantasy series can now play as Ciri, the ashen-haired princess of Cintra and one of the main characters of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. But how can you get Ciri skin in Fortnite? What are the other Witcher-related items and rewards you can earn? Here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite x Witcher collaboration.
How to get Ciri skin in Fortnite
Ciri skin is available in the Fortnite Item Shop for 1600 V-Bucks. She comes with the Zireael back bling, which is a replica of her silver sword from The Witcher 3. You can also purchase her Zireael Sword pickaxe for 800 V-Bucks and her Basilisk glider for 1200 V-Bucks. The Ciri skin does not have any additional style options, but it does capture her likeness from the video games very well.
Ciri is not the only Witcher character you can play as in Fortnite. She is joined by Yennefer of Vengerberg, the powerful sorceress and Geralt’s love interest. Yennefer skin costs 1600 V-Bucks as well, and she comes with the Bird Skull back bling, which is a reference to her necklace from The Witcher 3. You can also get her Yennefer’s Megascope pickaxe for 800 V-Bucks and her Black Wings emote for 500 V-Bucks. Like Ciri, Yennefer does not have any style options.
If you want to complete your Witcher collection, you can also get Geralt of Rivia skin, who was added to Fortnite as part of the Chapter 4 Season 1 battle pass earlier this year. Geralt skin costs 1500 V-Bucks and he comes with the Wolf Medallion back bling and his Steel Sword pickaxe. He also has two style options: default and shirtless.
How to get free Witcher rewards in Fortnite
Besides the skins and items you can buy from the Item Shop, there are also some free Witcher rewards you can earn by playing Creative mode. From now until July 4, there are two new Creative islands inspired by The Witcher that you can visit and complete challenges on. They are Ciri’s Escape (island code 2776-4034-8400) and Yennefer’s Battleground (island code 2862-9616-5689).
Ciri’s Escape is a parkour map where you have to use Ciri’s blink ability to navigate through obstacles and enemies. Yennefer’s Battleground is a combat map where you have to use Yennefer’s magic spells to defeat waves of monsters and soldiers. Both maps are designed to look like locations from The Witcher 3, such as Novigrad and Skellige.
By playing these maps, you can unlock some free cosmetics based on The Witcher characters. Playing Ciri’s map will earn you the Confident Ciri emoticon, playing Yen’s map will get you the Annoyed Yennefer emoticon, and completing them both will net you the Tale of Two Tempests banner.
Why Fortnite x Witcher is a big deal
The Fortnite x Witcher collaboration is a big deal for fans of both franchises, as it brings together two of the most popular and influential video games of all time. The Witcher series has a massive fan base, thanks to its immersive storytelling, rich lore, memorable characters, and engaging gameplay. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is widely regarded as one of the best RPGs ever made, and it has sold over 50 million copies worldwide.
Fortnite, on the other hand, is one of the most successful and influential games of all time, with over 350 million players worldwide. It has revolutionized the battle royale genre with its building mechanics, constant updates, live events, and crossover collaborations.

By bringing The Witcher characters to Fortnite, Epic Games is not only expanding its roster of Gaming Legends skins, but also introducing a new audience to the world of The Witcher. Fans of The Witcher can enjoy playing as their favorite characters in a different setting, while fans of Fortnite can discover a new franchise with a rich history and lore. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.
The Fortnite x Witcher collaboration is one of the most exciting crossover events in Fortnite history, as it brings together two of the most popular and influential video games of all time.
