Netflix has confirmed a crossover between the massively popular TV show, Stranger Things, and the biggest game in the world, Fortnite.
Epic has been laying it on thick with the crossovers of late. We saw round two of Fortnite X Avengers a little over a month ago, followed by Fortnite X John Wick with the best LTM the game has ever seen. Directly after that, we had the Fortnite X Jumpman crossover.
Season 3 of Stranger Things is going to be a massive television event, and the world is going to shut down for 10-12 hours while everyone binge-watches it.
It looks like Epic Games wants in on the action, and Fortnite appears to be one of the few games working with the Netflix videogame developers to create a Fortnite X Stranger Things crossover.
In traditional E3 style, we're leaving you with some tasty teasers to chew on. Watch out for our upcoming projects with @Behaviour@Ubisoft @Roblox and @EpicGames. Get hype and stay tuned to NX for more info on these real soon!— NX (@NXOnNetflix) June 12, 2019
Season 3 of Stranger Things premiers on July 4, so the event will likely begin earlier in that week to build anticipation. This also explains the in-game reference to Stranger Things through the Scoops Ahoy shop in Mega Mall in Fortnite - lifted from the TV show.
This crossover will almost certainly involve zombies in some form or another. If the Horde Rush LTM is still in the game on July 4, it might even be an addition to that mode.
We'll probably also see a skin or two relating to the event. Which Stranger Things character would you like to see in Fortnite? Let us know on Twitter @FortniteTracker.
