The next Fortnite crossover is on the horizon, and it looks like Dune is making an appearance in the battle royale.
Characters and items from the upcoming film will be added to the game, including Paul Atreides and Chani played by Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya respectively. There’s also a new loading screen, emote, harvesting tools and even a glider based on an Ornithopter.
Fortnite has become known for doing huge crossovers with other franchises, and this is the latest in a long line of big collaborations. Previous crossovers included Marvel, DC Comics, Star Wars and The Walking Dead, among others.
A Desert of Data
The information was revealed by prominent Fortnite leakers after data-mining the game’s files, and HYPEX posted all the new content on Twitter.
These skins look pretty nice, though they lack the instant recognition factor of Marvel’s superheroes or video game icons like Master Chief and Kratos. Still, it’s cool to see the world of Dune represented in video game form.
We don’t have a release date for the crossover, but it’s safe to say it shouldn’t be too long of a wait. The highly anticipated sci-fi epic, based on the classic novel by Frank Herbert, is coming to theaters very soon. It’s likely this new content will launch soon as hype for the film reaches fever pitch.
