Videogame smash Fortnite and returning episodic thriller Stranger Things have a crossover in the works, with several in-game portals now popping up in-game.
Ahead of the Season 3 premiere of Stranger Things on July 4, themed portals to the series' Upside-Down dimension have started appearing in Fortnite.
The portals do not respond to gunfire or melee attacks. However, they do have teleportation qualities. Players can walk into one and find themselves walking out of another.
About 2-3 hours ago, Epic decrypted yet another .pak file that contains a lot of Stranger Things related files. There is now also a Stranger Things portal in Mega Mall!— ShiinaBR - Fortnite Leaks (@ShiinaBR) July 3, 2019
The two entities revealed their planned crossover event back in June.
Speaking at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo’s panel track, Netflix’s games division director Chris Lee confirmed that the Fortnite version of a Stranger Things ice cream store was part of a larger collaboration.
That could mean a special Limited Time Mode, as was the case for movie franchises Marvel’s The Avengers and John Wick, or something new for Creative Mode, such as the Nike Air Jordan downhill dash.
An official announcement is expected to follow. – AFP Relaxnews
