Fortnite Battle Royale is getting another event, and this time it’s better than ever. The Fortnite event will be a cross over with a Netflix original.
Fortnite Stranger Things Event is Coming
Fortnite Battle Royale is known for making special events, such as the recent End Game crossover. Let’s just say they want to make a big bang with their events, such as the time they made the first online concert in gaming. However, these events aren’t always so great but are enough to keep fans engaged. Epic Games likes to fill these events in the Battle Royale timeline to freshen up the scene.
In the past we have seen many events; some were lore based and some were not. We had the Avengers events twice as mentioned above. Of course, no will forget the Infinity Gauntlet one. We had a Basketball-themed event and now we are getting something else.
Fortnite Stranger Things Crossover
The Fortnite Crossover event with Stranger Things is confirmed through famous Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi. In case some of you never heard of Stranger Things, or perhaps never had a chance to watch the movies since it’s exclusively on Netflix, here’s a quick rundown.
Stranger Things takes place in the town of Hawkins, Indiana, around the early 1980s. A laboratory near town performs scientific research for the United States Department of Energy, but in secret, they are also doing experiments on supernatural things and some of these events involve human experiments. Accidentally, the lab workers have created a portal to another dimension called “the Upside Down”. The problem is this dimension is causing problems in the nearby town. So far Stranger things had 3 seasons until now, and they are continuing with a 4th one.
But all things aside, Epic Games is doing some amazing work with this new event. Stranger Things crossover with Fortnite is coming through Netflix. This is another interesting thing and it means series and TV shows are open to collaborations with video games. Of course, Fortnite is really popular, but everybody around the world also knows about Netflix, so it’s a match made in heaven. People from all over the world are watching something on Netflix and this is just good marketing for both platforms. We’re definitely excited to see what the event will bring.
