Fortnite’s season 9 has recently been released, bringing a ton of new fun features and updates to the popular battle royale game. One of the most exciting new updates is a cool John Wick Easter egg, just in time for the third movie, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
The season 9 update in Fortnite added John Wick’s mansion from the movies to Paradise Palms. Inside the mansion, fans will find another John Wick Easter egg. In the basement, players can unlock a chest where John Wick keeps his stash of weapons, gold, ammo and anything else he may need to be one of the most famous hitmen ever. The movie is set to hit theatres on 17 May 2019, so the John Wick Easter egg is a perfect tie into the third movie’s release. Data miners have also found code which suggests that players can be expecting a limited time mode themed around the upcoming movie’s release.
