Stranger Things has been one of the most popular and talked about Netflix series in recent memory, fans have urged the producers to come back for season after season and thanks to their appeal they have. Stranger Things Season 3 will premiere on July 4th, however at the same time Fortnite leakers have found a new event coming soon.

Data miners are always on the ball as soon as a major update releases for Fortnite, digging through lines and lines of code they usually find everything little detail from cosmetics to new game modes. This time around they managed to leak two key things coming soon to Fortnite. Now, trusted community leakers has discovered some detailing information about the next special Fortnite event. 

In the past, Fortnite has partnered with multiple mainstream outlets, their collaboration with Avengers Endgame before the blockbuster film released was argued as one of the best crossovers in modern gaming history.

At E3 2O19, Netflix teased this potential crossover between the horror TV show and the kid-friendly game. Netflix posted an image that involves the Stranger Things characters and color style with the Fortnite Battle Royal victory sign. Lucas7yoshi has gained a reputation as being one of the most trustworthy and respected leakers in the scene and whenever a massive Fortnite patch releases he is quick on the scene to find any new weapons or events that are hidden in the game files.

The leaked game files confirm to us that there will be an in-game set much like the Marvels Avengers set of Black Widow and Star Lord coming to the Fortnite item shop in the near future. 

In the past we have not seen many "scary" Fortnite skins, most are nice looking and great cosmetically but now after Lucas7yoshi found a string of code we are indeed getting a horrific skin. 

Demogorgon was a key villain in Stranger Things Season 1 and it appears to will be making a stop at the Fortnite item shop sometime soon. Another Fortnite leaker also obtained sound files for an in-game LTM surrounded around Stranger Things.

They are under the label "Weird Objects" but other leakers have confirmed that is what all the other Stranger Things data was under so it is all but confirmed at this point. As always, just because it is in the Fortnite game files does not entirely mean we will be seeing them in the item shop. 

Are you a fan of Stranger Things and will you be hopping in the Battle Bus to try this special event out? Let us know in the comments below!
