Fortnite fans and fans of Stranger things will LOVE this crossover …
Netflix’s release of Stranger Things 3 has brought along an unprecedented number of marketing tie-ins, which include a link to Fortnite. 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. Unfortunately, unlike the Avengers: Endgame and John Wick collaborations, there doesn’t appear to be any kind of new limited-time game mode.
Instead, as expected, there are a couple of new skins available allowing players to take on the appearance of Chief Hopper or the Demogorgon (that cost 1,500 and 1,200 “v bucks” respectively), plus a “Vines” weapon wrap. If anything else appears in-game, let us know — but no spoilers, not everyone has finished season three yet.
The gate has been opened.
