A new Black Panther statue has been added to Fortnite's map, following the launch of the new Marvel season. The new landmark appeared in game very recently, following the untimely passing of actor Chadwick Boseman. Already, players are paying their respects and sharing the statue on social media.

In addition, Eurogamer reports that players are also asking for Fortnite developer Epic to add a Black Panther skin to the game and donating the proceeds to charity.

There's no telling how long the statue will continue to exist in the game, as the Fortnite map changes often enough. But, while it's there players can continue to pay their respects.

In additional Fortnite news, Epic dropped a new trailer showing off some graphic upgrades that will be arriving in the game soon -- particularly ray tracing and DLSS. The trailer can be viewed below.
