Branching out beyond the game itself, Epic Games recently teamed with Hasbro to release an action figure based on Fortnite's version of G.I. Joe's Snake Eyes.
Now it looks like that partnership is going to continue.
Fortnite X Hasbro
Over recent months we have seen Fortnite and Hasbro collaborate on a variety of products from Nerf Guns, Monopoly, and most recently a Snake Eyes action figure.
In a press release, Hasbro announced their future plans for the partnership.
“Hasbro’s expertise in the realm of collectible figure and role play segments has yielded incredibly positive results for our long roster of entertainment based action brands. "We’ve had tremendous success collaborating with Epic Games and the Fortnite brand over the past few years, and this expanded product licensing partnership allows us to deliver an amazing lineup of Fortnite inspired toys and collector items that we’re confident fans will be excited to experience.”
With a season full of collaborations, could we start to see some Fortnite inspired action figures and merchandise of some of entertainment's biggest IPs.
Alien Skins Leaked
With the audio transmission now posted by Epic Games, it means that the arrival of the new Hunters won't be far away, likely either on Friday or Saturday.
Ahead of their release, leakers have been Epic Games to the punch and gave us our first look at what the new skins look like.
This image also confirms what we theorized previously, that both Xenomorph and Ellen Ripley would be coming to the game, much like T-800 and Sarah Connor from the Terminator franchise
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Start Date
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 began on December 2nd 2020, and is expected to end on Tuesday March 16th.
This puts Season 5 at around 16 weeks long, much longer than the expected 10 weeks that a season is meant to be.
So far we have seen some Overtime Challenges and will continue to see them throughout the rest of the season.
