Hello guys! If you haven't heard the news yet, Fortnite has added a Solid Snake skin as part of its collaboration with the Metal Gear Solid series, and players can now play as Snake after weeks of waiting. This mid-season update introduces new Battle Pass quests for players to complete and unlock the Solid Snake skin and themed rewards. Solid Snake is the latest addition to the game starring Peter Griffin from Family Guy. While the collaboration between Fortnite and Metal Gear Solid has made longtime fans of the franchise happy, many are angry at Fortnite for what they call the “slaughter” of Snake and have criticized the developers for mistreatment of the iconic character.
The collaboration between Fortnite and Metal Gear Solid didn't start under the best of auspices. The latest update to Fortnite adds Old Snake from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots as well as Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2. Players were hoping that Raiden's outfit would come from the spin-off title Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but they were disappointed. The trailer showed Solid Snake and Raiden turning into invisible enemies and fighting, as well as different cosmetics for the characters. As much as fans loved seeing their favorite characters in the game, they are angry. Fans are criticizing the character models for looking cartoony, with many people writing “this isn't Solid Snake”. Fans of the series also criticized the developers for poor graphics and the fact that it looks like a mobile game, adding that Fortnite would ruin the Metal Gear franchise.
Players criticized the graphics and character models. The character models sparked controversy due to their thin appearance and Snake's flat buttocks, which also received criticism when Solid Snake was announced to be coming to the game. Players also criticized Konami, saying that they no longer care about the franchise and that the addition of Snake in Fortnite is just a propaganda campaign to remake Metal. Gear Solid.
