Peter Griffin’s appearance in Fortnite differs from Family Guy, and an animation has explained his transformation. A new Fortnite season has begun, and the battle pass includes some familiar faces alongside the long-anticipated Peter Griffin skin.
Fortnite leakers have teased the release of a Peter Griffin skin for many seasons. As seasons passed, more questions mounted as fans wondered where it was. More leaks occurred, and some fans wondered if Peter Griffin would ever be added. The OG season concluded yesterday and Fortnite Chapter 5 quickly commenced, with the event calling back to the Meteor and End ones. Among the cameos during the latest event were LEGO characters, Rocket League cars, and Eminem, who performed two songs. The Battle Pass trailer that dropped also confirmed a few known characters, including Peter Griffin, whose fat was replaced with muscle.
Fortnite Twitch Viewership Surges Thanks to Eminem Live Event
Eminem’s Fortnite debut during the Big Bang event gives Twitch a massive surge in viewership, closing out Chapter 4 in a huge way.
The Fortnite Twitter account recently shared an animation showing exactly how Peter Griffin became ripped for the new season. The animation is in the Family Guy art style, and it shows Meowscles interacting with the hit TV show character. The clip begins with Meowscles stamping “fail” on a physical exam form, which inspires Peter to flex unsuccessfully. Meowscles then displays two books describing how to get swole in 30 days and 1 hour respectively. After denying both, Meowscles then hands Peter a Slurp Juice which he drinks. After guzzling the recovery item, Peter’s form immediately changes to how he appears in the Fortnite battle pass.
As Peter flexes his new muscles, a rift opens behind Meowscles, and he jumps into it. Falling to the Fortnite Chapter 5 island, Peter releases a helicopter glider that features his nose, hair, and glasses. The helicopter glider and Peter Griffin skin are both available now in the battle royale. Players will need to earn experience through playing and completing challenges to acquire both. Peter Griffin is unlocked at level 70, while the Glider is a quest reward. The video concludes by showing the Battle Pass screen, which also highlights the Metal Gear Solid protagonist Solid Snake as a playable character.
Because Fortnite OG has ended, the battle royale may be done setting player records for now, though the new season will likely boast a healthy player count regardless. Although fans have waited many seasons for the Peter Griffin skin, most additional Family Guy content wasn’t leaked ahead of time. Given that Epic Games continues to update Fortnite, perhaps the game will receive more Family Guy characters like what happened with Rick and Morty.
Fortnite is a massively popular game that has several modes, the most famous of which is the online battle royale mode. In this mode, players collect items, build structures, and battle it out to be the ultimate victor.
