Starts this week in Fortnite, you can get Predator to do a Pelé victory dance while using TheGrefgs 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-promoting juggernaut, but developer Epic Games has recently taken things to a whole new level.
This season alone, which started on December 2, Epic has added:
Crossovers like these are by no means a new thing for Fortnite. The game̵
To me, the crossovers are part of the continued 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 crossovers give Epic opportunities to raise more money, 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 game store or sell one of their seasonal match passes.
Do not expect the parts to stop at any time. Predator just joined Fortnite, but Epic is already teasing the arrival of Sarah Connor from The Terminator franchise. That probably means there will be one Terminator cyborg skin too – and if it is, it means you will be able to pose Terminator against Predator in a battle for eternity. Just hope Mando does not bump into.
