The Scarlet Witch, as featured in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, has joined Fortnite and, if you’ve got the V-Bucks, you can play as her.
Hang on… have they gone and left Doctor Strange out? No, because Doctor Strange was introduced a while back, not least because of his Thanos-thwarting shenanigans. The Scarlet Witch, on the other other hand, has been introduced to promote the aforementioned movie, which sees Doctor Strange coming to blows with pretty much everyone.
However, as with most other Fortnite movie-based skins, Scarlet Witch doesn’t share her screen counterpart’s physical appearance. She’s got a movie-accurate costume but she only has a passing resemblance to Elizabeth Olsen, who plays her in the film. That’s presumably because Epic Games would have to pay for the rights to use her image, but even with that, the costume looks very cool and a lot more functional than the daft comic book version.
The outfit costs 1,500 V-Bucks, or you can buy a pack for 1,800 V-Bucks which includes Wanda’s Cloak Back Bling, Chaos Hand Axe Pickaxe and the Psychic Energy Manipulation Emote. There’s no Wandavision alternative costume, but if you’re a fan of the character she’s available to purchase right now.
Knowledge, power, and pain makes Scarlet Witch just who she’s meant to be.
