One of many
Since its launch in 2017, Fortnite has built an impressive roster. Collecting everyone from pop stars to necromorph slayers, you have enough options to fully equip your team with the hottest heroes, celebrities and upside-down demogorgons.
When it comes to video game characters, Isaac Clarke isn’t the first to join the Battle Royale roster. The Gaming Legends skin series also features demigod dad Kratos, tomb-raiding Lara Croft, and even Halo’s Master Chief. Video game characters known for major roles in other franchises becoming part of the wacky world of Fortnite are now something of a fan service.
More death in space
As mentioned above, this Fortnite roster expansion comes at a crucial time for the Necromorph Hunter. The Dead Space Remake is set to release on January 27, and the 2008 survival horror game will get a modern facelift on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Just some of the improvements made in the remake include a much more vocal Isaac, with the Necromorph slayer now actively commenting on his surroundings and even talking to the few remaining people on the Ishimura ultrasound, and great new body peeling system which allows you to thoroughly dismember your enemies – because true horror is nothing if it’s not accurate.
It looks like you can now enjoy the many faces of Isaac Clarke thanks to Epic Games. Whether he’s being terrorized by bloodied mutant monsters on a space station or teaming up with Ariana Grande for a victorious chicken dinner.
