A video game in which players stalk and kill one another is getting notably more inclusive, which, we guess… is progress?
This week, a leaker revealed two upcoming skins coming to the massively popular Fortnite franchise.
One of them, reportedly coming to Fortnite: Save the World is “Toni” a nonbinary character who uses they/them pronouns.
As a quick recap;
Min-Joon is the Battle Royale Starter Pack for next season!

The leaked character description reads, “They’re a classic throwback with style to spare,” and it’s clear from the comments that many players are already on ‘team Toni’:

Toni is expected to be available for gameplay within a month or two.
Earlier this month, Fortnite released its first Icon Series skin for an LGBTQ person when it revealed a rainbow skin for Chica, a popular, bisexual content creator.
