The two new hunters were revealed in a cinematic trailer that started off with them doing what they do best – taking down Walkers. We then see Michonne and Daryl getting ready for the coming hoard before Jonesy drops in front of them. He opens a rift and takes the duo with him into the world of Fortnite.

Since the teaser also had Walkers in it, we could potentially see some zombie-themed cosmetics in Season 5 as well. You can watch the Game Awards trailer below.

This announcement was certainly unexpected, but it’s bound to excite The Walking Dead fans. Epic Games confirmed that the new skins will be in the Fortnite Item Shop on December 16 for all platforms.

There is also some Halo content on the way, along with rumors of Predator and Jurassic World crossovers. Fortnite Season 5 is full of surprises, and we’re eager to see what they’ll announce next.
