Even as the game enters its fourth year, Fortnite is still finding ways to keep its battle royale formula fresh and inviting. The season-oriented approach that Epic Games has committed to has proven to be very successful, and the seemingly constant stream of new cosmetics gives players something to work towards every time they turn on the game. Perhaps the most attractive feature that Fortnite has in contrast to most other battle royale games is its frequent crossover events, each of them bringing in new content based on well-known properties such as Marvel or Star Wars.
The most recent season of Fortnite has already had some of the most ambitious crossovers to ever grace the game. Some truly unexpected properties have been introduced, each of them coming from a different realm of pop culture. Whether it's movies, television, or other video games, it would seem that nothing is off the table at this point when it comes to Fortnite crossovers.
Chapter 2 Season 5 started off strong with crossover content by bringing the immensely popular Mandalorian into the game. Not only did Fortnite players have the chance to unlock Mando's armor for use as a cosmetic, but there was also an in game challenge where, if players found the crashed Razor Crest, they could fight the Mandalorian for a chance to use his jetpack and sniper rifle upon defeating him. Arguably the most coveted reward for this crossover event was what players received upon hitting level 100 in the battle pass. If players were able to reach this goal, either through gameplay or V-Bucks, they got access to a Baby Yoda (or Grogu) cosmetic that puts the pint-sized Force user on their back at all times.
Another one of the early events in the most recent season brought a Sony legend to all versions of the game, as God of War's Kratos was added as a buyable cosmetic. In addition to the skin, players could wield the Leviathan Axe as a pickaxe and customize further with a new glider and back bling based on the game. What was perhaps most shocking about this addition was that Kratos was not exclusive to the PlayStation version of Fortnite, allowing Xbox and Switch owners to access to the Ghost of Sparta as well. There was some special treatment for PS5 owners, however, as using the Kratos skin in a match on the system unlocks the Armored Kratos skin.
Continuing the trend of gaming icons, Microsoft got some love with the addition of Halo's Master Chief as a usable skin. Similar to Kratos, Master Chief was available to everyone that plays Fortnite, giving PlayStation and Switch owners the chance to experience what it's like to run around as one of the deadliest spartans the UNSC has ever seen. Chief became the second part of the Gaming Legends series of skins that started with Kratos, so rumors have been running rampant on who might represent Nintendo in the future. A lot of gamers believe that Metroid's Samus Aran could be added next, considering the hunter theme of other skins, but it's all speculation at this point.
