John Wick’s house appears in Fortnite, in time for Parabellum’s release


It’s easy to forget that John Wick isn’t actually inFortnite, given that everyone calls the bearded premium skin from season 3 “John Wick.” (It’s actually named The Reaper.) Today, Epic Games formalized the violently stylish movie connection through an island Easter egg.

The new season 9 update changed the Paradise Palms portion of the map, introducing a mansion that may look very similar to anyone who has watchedJohn Wick.

TheFortnitemansion also has a chest in the basement, which is a callback to John Wick’s house stash, where he keeps weapons and large amounts of gold.

What makes this discovery particularly interesting is that data miners have found in-game files that seems to refer to a limited-time mode. Curiously, the name “Wick” is all over these files.
