It would appear that Stranger Things and Fortnite could be crossing over in a new event. Portals have started to appear in the game.

The Stranger Things franchise has been crossing over into the gaming space ahead of its Season 3 debut. A new game launched on July 4 alongside the new season and Roblox got a few themed items from the show, but Fortnite may also take part in the action. Recently, portals similar to those found in the TV series have appeared in Epic’s battle royale game. Are we about to get a Stranger Things x Fortnite crossover event? It seems more than likely.

The Fortnite x Stranger Things event hasn’t formally been announced by either group, but players began discovering the portals in game on July 3, 2019. In addition, dataminers had discovered back in June that assets were in place for the Stranger Things crossover. “Weird Objects,” indeed. It would seem that both Fortnite and Stranger Things are ready to unveil their schemes, just in time for the Stranger Things Season 3 start on Netflix on July 4, 2019.

As such, Stranger Things becomes the latest high-profile property to join the Fortnite universe in various special events. In 2018, we saw an Avengers: Infinity War event feature Thanos as playable, followed by an Avengers: Endgame event in 2019. We also got ourselves a John Wick crossover event in celebration of John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum. Each time out, the events often come with limited time challenges, changes, and skins to go with the fun and we have no doubt the Stranger Things crossover is set to be similar.

What once seemed like a random, one-time thing for Fortnite is becoming a regular affair as it continues to draw audiences and we’re all for it. They’re not alone either. PUBG Mobile had their own fun with a Godzilla: King of the Monsters event featuring changes to the map and Godzilla-based cosmetics, which was just incredible.

What kind of cosmetics or events do you hope to see out of the Stranger Things x Fortnite crossover? We’ll have more on this event as new info drops so check back soon!
