Leak: Nick Fury is coming to the Item Shop tonight

Fortnite has added a 'Nick Fury' Section to the API in preparation for his arrival in tonight's Item Shop.

Yesterday, Epic also renamed an encrypted Set of cosmetics to 'S.H.I.E.L.D.', which started rumours that a Hawkeye Outfit would be released soon in celebration of the new Disney+ series.

Nick Fury will be the fourth Marvel Outfit introduced during Season 8, following the release of Carnage in the Battle Pass with Eddie Brock and Dark Phoenix in the Item Shop.
