Fortnite Reveals New Skin for Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora
Fortnite Gamora Cup
Fortnite developer Epic Games has announced that Guardians of the Galaxy’s Gamora will officially join the popular free-to-play video game as a new skin.
The developer teased her arrival before nearly immediately officially revealing the skin, which features the white armor seen in many of her comics appearances. Additionally, Epic Games announced that Gamora will be part of a bundle with the previously released Star-Lord skin and the new Gamora‘s Cloak Back Bling, Godslayer Pickaxe, and the Godslayer Glideboard. The whole thing is set to drop on August 18th at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
Additionally, as with the vast majority of previously licensed skins, Gamora’s outfit and Back Bling can be earned early by participating in a special Gamora Cup starting August 11th. As before, this will be a Duos tournament where players have three hours to earn as many points as they can across 10 games, and the top teams in each region will be granted the Gamora Outfit and Gamora Cloak Back Bling. Anyone that scores at least 8 points will be granted the Daughter of Thanos Spray.
As noted above, the Gamora skin will officially release on August 18th at 8PM ET/5PM PT. The special Gamora Cup for a chance to earn it for free will take place on August 11th.
As for Fortnite itself, the popular free-to-play video game is in the midst of Chapter 2 – Season 7 and is currently available on most major platforms, but the iOS version, specifically, has hit a snag after Epic Games intentionally set off a chain of events that caused it to be removed from the App Store.
The legal fight over that decision is ongoing, but the short version is: nobody is playing Chapter 2 – Season 7 on an iPhone right now. You can check out all of our previous coverage of Fortnite right here.

Guardian of the Galaxy’s Gamora is on her way to Fortnite
Epic Games is continuing the tradition of bringing well-known superheroes to Fortnite with Gamora, the greenest member of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
The adopted daughter of Thanos, Gamora helps the rest of the Guardians out of the shenanigans that they insist on getting themselves into and could be considered the only member of the group with an appreciation for things like tactics, strategy, and forethought.
Gamora will be joining Star-Lord and Groot who are already in the game from previous seasons. Technically Rocket Racoon is in the game as well, but not as a skin. Gamora will be available in the item shop on August 14 and will be joined by Star-Lord who will be making his return to the shop to keep her company.
To celebrate her arrival in the game, there will also be a Gamora Cup. On August 11, players will be able to compete for a chance to win the Gamora skin and her cloak. The content will take the form of a Duos tournament, and players will have three hours to earn as many points as they can over a maximum of 10 games. The top-performing teams in each region will receive the Gamora Outfit and Gamora Cloak Back Bling. Anyone who earns at least 8 points will earn the Daughter of Thanos Spray.
Epic hasn’t released any pricing details for the Gamora skin or bundle yet, but the full bundle will contain Gamora’s Cloak Back Bling, Godslayer Pickaxe, and the Godslayer Glideboard as well as the Gamora skin.
Marvel’s Gamora Joins Fortnite This Week – How To Unlock Gamora Early
She’ll be reunited with fellow Guardian of the Galaxy, Star-Lord.
Fortnite and Marvel are teaming up once again. This time it’s another member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora, who will be joining the ever-expanding roster of Fortnite crossover outfits, or “skins” as fans tend to call them. Here’s what you need to know about when Gamora is coming to Fortnite and how to unlock her early.
Fortnite Gamora Skin
Gamora will debut in the Fortnite Item Shop on August 14 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET. Though a price hasn’t yet been revealed, we expect her complete bundle of in-game cosmetics to go for about 2400 V-Bucks, or about $20. Gamora will be sold alongside Star-Lord, who makes his long-awaited return to the game after previously debuting in 2019.
Players who leveled up their Season 4 battle passes enough also previously unlocked Groot with a Rocket Racoon Back Bling, meaning nearly the entire Guardians squad from the James Gunn era have come to Fortnite. (Just waiting on you, Drax.) Gamora’s full set will also include back bling, a pickaxe, and a glider.
It’s appropriate that Gamora arrives in Fortnite this season, since Doctor Slone and the Imagined Order are having such a tough time expelling the alien trespassers. Gamora knows a thing or two about fending off aliens.
Fortnite Gamora Cup: How To Unlock Gamora Early
As usual, Epic is giving players the chance to earn a major new in-game skin before it’s on sale. On August 11, a few days before Gamora’s proper debut, players can jump into the Gamora Cup from the in-game menu labeled Competitive.
In Duos, players will have three hours to complete 10 rounds of Fortnite battle royale and accumulate points. The winners within each region will earn the Gamora outfit and the Gamora Cloak back bling. While few will be so lucky (and skilled), the bar to leave with something in hand is much lower. Any teams that amass eight or more points in the allotted time will receive the Daughter of Thanos spray.
You can find the full rulebook and scoring system breakdown on the official Fortnite site, but suffice it to say scoring eight points in 10 rounds should be quite doable for even many casual Fortnite players, so if you’re a Guardians fan, it may be worth it to try your hand at Fortnite’s competitive scene.
Gamora isn’t the only superhero from another planet coming to Fortnite this week. Alongside his very own Superman quests, the Man of Steel makes his debut on August 12.
‘Fortnite’ Debuts Gamora Skin, How Many MCU Characters Are They Even Missing?
Fortnite, in its alien-focused season, is debuting a new alien from the MCU, Gamora, which is not a great shock to those who have been following along with the game releasing a wild amount of Marvel and DC superhero skins, though especially Marvel, with a Marvel-focused season a short while ago.
Gamora will be live in the store on August 14 and you can earn her earlier if you perform well in the upcoming Gamora Cup, similar to what they just did with the Cammy Cup.
Gamora will be joining her fellow Guardians of the Galaxy, as Star Lord, Groot and Rocket are already in the game (Rocket as a Groot accessory). The only one missing of the central five is Drax now, and my guess is that he’ll be here in short order.
The arrival of Gamora has me thinking about what MCU characters Fortnite is even missing at this point. They have more Marvel characters than any other category of licensed IPs.

So, far MCU Marvel characters (characters that have appeared in the MCU, not necessarily their exact looks) we have:
Black Widow, Thor, Captain America, Star Lord, Groot, Rocket, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Taskmaster, Daredevil, Iron Man, Ant-Man, Loki, Thanos.
Coming to the MCU in the mid to long-term future:
Deadpool, Mystique, Cable, Wolverine, She Hulk, Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, Blade, Venom (Sony semantics), Ghost Rider (not counting the SHIELD version), Psylocke.
So, who are the highest profile MCU members missing?
Hawkeye, which could happen as cross promotion for the Disney Plus show this fall, with Kate Bishop.
Bruce Banner/Hulk, as they may not want a “shrimpy” Hulk model, though they did give us smaller Thanos…
Spider-Man, I am sure he will show up someday, but I’m guessing this is some sort of Sony licensing nightmare considering all the drama there in the past.
Scarlet Witch/Vision, would have been an ice WandaVision crossover, but it never happened.
Falcon and The Winter Soldier/Sam Captain America, maybe for Captain America 4, then.
Doctor Strange, easy to see him coming closer to his new movie next year.
Past there, I think we’re getting into more minor characters (Shuri, War Machine, Wasp) or ones that aren’t out yet (Shang-Chi, the Eternals).
Gamora heralds the arrival of Drax at some point, maybe Nebula too, who I forgot about until right now. She will be live in just over a week to purchase, and sigh, yes, I will be getting her, as I can’t stop collecting these damn licensed skins.
