Fortnite developer Epic Games made the announcement on August 3 via a post to their website.
“Making his way from the airbase to the Battle Bus, Guile — in all his flat top glory — touches down in Fortnite. The Guile Outfit showcases the classic green fatigues first worn in the original Street Fighter II and adds a beach-ready Glistening Guile Variant and K.O. Backbling,” the post reads.
Cammy comes with back bling and a variant skin. “A member of Delta Red, Cammy is ready for action. Alongside the classic Cammy Outfit, you’ll also be able to equip the Borealis Backer Back Bling and Tactical Cammy Variant,” the post continued.
A bundle is also available, giving players two skins and back bling for each character. The bundle also includes a Round 2 loading screen.
A Cammy and Guile gear bundle will also be released with the characters. “The Bundle features Guile’s Knuckle Buster Pickaxe, Cammy’s Delta Red Bowie Blade Pickaxe, and the V-Trigger Vector Glider — inspired by the original Guile stage,” Epic explains.
Epic Games also introduced an event known as the Cammy Cup. This is a duos tournament that will take place on August 5. The highest-placing duos in each region will win the Cammy outfit and Borealis Backer back bling. Teams that log 8 points will gain access to the Round Two loading screen. Each elimination will be worth 1 point while different placings will earn points as well. First place finishers, for instance, will receive 42 points, 2nd place will get 36, 3rd will receive 32 points and 4th will receive 30. Even those who place 45th-50th will receive one point.
The addition of Guile and Cammy makes for a total of four Street Fighter characters in Fortnite. Chun-Li and Ryu skins were added to the game in February.
