Fortnite x Stranger Things Is Now Live And The New Skins Have Leaked2019-07-05 15:38:39
Epic Games has been teasing a crossover between their hit battle royale game and Netflix's Stranger Things for some time now, with more and more evidence coming to light over the past week.
Netflix's release of Stranger Things 3 has brought along an unprecedented number of marketing tie-ins, which include a link to Fortnite.
Fortnite was previously rumored to star in the Netflix hit "Stranger Things," which premiered its third season this morning on Netflix's streaming platform. You may remember that everyone at Epic gets a two-week vacation, so there's no official information about this event. Some familiar-looking teleporters popped up in the game's mall area yesterday to join already-included Scoops Ahoy ice cream powerups, and tonight Epic announced the full details of their crossover.
In a pair of tweet released from the official Fortnite account, we get a look at both Hopper and the Demogorgon, but there is an additional item that was not included in the leak. The two layers of skin, as Fortnite did in the crossover version of John Wick, we once again have a real celebrity portrait skin. This time, David Harbour will no longer be Keanu Reeves, the a-list star, but he and the character will still be recognizable.
It will be interesting to see how this collaboration evolves over the coming weeks. Fortnite is currently available on nintendo switches, personal computers, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and mobile devices. There is no word yet on whether there will be a Google Stadia port, but it is definitely possible.
Stranger Things Season 3 lands on Netflix tomorrow. Stay tuned.
