From this week in Fortnite, you can get Predator to do a Pelé victory dance while using TheGrefg’s gamepad pickaxe. On Thursday, a Faze Clan streamer played Fortnite with a Manchester City star while wearing Manchester City skins. The Battle Royale hit has long been known as a cross-campaign juggernaut, but developer Epic Games has recently taken things to a whole new level.
Just this season, which started on December 2, Epic has added:
Crossovers like these are by no means a new thing to Fortnite. The game̵
To me, crossover is part of the continuing appeal of Fortnite – where else can I play as Kratos and meet Iron Man? – and each new addition helps Epic build the ultimate virtual world. But the crossover also gives Epic opportunities to get more cash, which can help compensate for the game’s absence on iOS. Battle royale-hit is free to play, so each brand new look is a chance for Epic to get people to pay for items from the in-game store or sell one of its seasonal combat passes.
Do not expect the crossover filter to stop at any time. The predator just came along Fortnite, but Epic is already teasing the arrival of Sarah Connor The Terminator franchise. That probably means there will be one Terminator also cyborg skin – and if there is, that means you are able to put Terminator against Predator in a battle for eternity. Just hope Mando does not bump into.
