Since the beginning of the Season 5 of Fortnite: Zero Point, many characters from famous movie and game franchises have made an appearance in the game, from Master Chief, to Kratos, and most recently, an icon of the eighties, the Predator.
Following this trend and being very attached to the time of the last mentioned, two new legendary characters from pop culture will make their arrival to the Epic Games’ battle royale: Sarah Connor, and the Terminator.

Players will be able to get their hands on the butt-kicking Sarah Connor, with a younger appearance similar to that from the first films of the saga, and on the other we will have the Terminator, in its T-800 version, for which its skin will appear in its exoskeleton, without giving reference to its original actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The introduction of these two has been an open secret for the past couple of days due to leaks since the release of v15.21 revealed the existance of the skins. A not-so-cryptic tweet referencing a "ruthless machine and a protector of the future" really let the cat out the bag.
Both skins are now available in a bundle in the in-game store for 2,800 V-Bucks, and who knows, maybe we could see more 80s-related skins coming to the game soon, maybe even an Alien skin to complement them.
