More Dragon Ball Crossover Details added.

The Fortnite 21.30 Update appears to continue the slow build-up to an eventual Dragon Ball crossover that's in the works and estimated to arrive in August.

The first bit of info we know comes from FortTory and is a series of "quests" with the previously unnamed capsule now being called the Stamina Container in the game's files

The second batch of information comes from FN_Assist who revealed a brand new glider texture in the files of the game, appearing to be one of the franchise's Attack Pods/ Sayian Pods.

Finally, iFireMonkey has suggested that there are two codenames currently known about that are a part of the Dragon Ball Crossover with Fortnite. The first of those is the Stamina Vigor Glider shown above and the second is a male skin by the name of Stamina Cat, which many people have taken to confirming Beerus as one of the four expected outfits.

What to Expect in Fortnite 21.30 Update

As we prepare for the next update to take full effect, all we know so far is that this will be the summer event for 2022. Outside of that, there is very little information to go off of currently.

The only thing we can expect to see once the update drops is a map change, with a new Point of Interest being added near to The Sanctuary location and reported by ShiinaBR

This location was added in the previous update and has the file name of Celebration_Skate according to FortTory. This suggests that the long-reported skating feature will be coming soon, potentially one of the big features of the Fortnite 21.30 Update.
