The Fortnite Midas Legendary skin is one of the most iconic skins in the game. The skin was added to the game nearly four years ago. Players who owned the battle pass could complete certain special challenges in the game to unlock the Midas skin in Fortnite. 

Additionally, the skin came with three variants. The Ghost and Shadow versions featured the character completely made out of gold wearing white and black formal shirts.

Not only was Golden Agent Midas fully made of gold, but he also wore clothes made out of the precious material. A LEGO Fortnite version of the skin was also added in late 2023 after the game mode was released.

Since its introduction in April 2020, the Fortnite Midas skin has not been seen in the game despite multiple requests from players who missed out on the skin from the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Battle pass. 

With Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 revolving around the theme of Greek Mythology, Epic Games considered this the best time to bring back The Fallen King cursed with the Golden Touch.

Epic Games tweeted out a photo of the iconic character exiting through a doorway with a gun in his hand. The post was captioned, "Midas returns." The Midas update has been confirmed to be released on Tuesday, March 19th.

The new update will introduce a totally new variant of the skin, keeping the original skins as rare as they were previously. The update will consist of the Hades Midas skin, the limited-time game mode titled 'The Floor is Lava', and several new Midas cosmetics. 

There is still not much information about how the skin will be unlocked in the game upon its reintroduction. While the original skin required you to complete multiple challenges, fans expect that the new variant will simply be purchasable from the item store for the standard price of 1,800 V-bucks. 

After all, many iconic Greek Mythology characters, such as Zeus and his trusty Thunderbolt of Zeus, have already made their way to the game. It only makes sense for them to bring back the character named after the King of Phrygia.
