Fortnite and its wacky metaverse have never shied away from weird mashups and crossovers, and the latest season — which is Season 7 of the second Chapter — is taking the world of aliens and making it very, very weird.
In the new Season 7 Battle Pass, you'll find Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty,
Clark Kent Superman, and Doctor Slone, an original Fortnite character with excellent hair. There are also various accessories themed around the new characters and aliens in general, like Rick's Butter Robot, a wormhole backpack, a rail gun and a pulse rifle, and emotes and dances, including one that's just a ska dance. We're... not sure how ska relates to aliens.
The biggest changes, though, include a customisable alien skin, a gun crafting system, and UFOs that you can fly around the map (or shoot down, if you prefer).
Oh, and, if you were wondering, this pretty much confirms that those weird postcards were for Fortnite, so... at least we solved that mystery.
Are you already playing the new Fortnite season? What's your favourite new addition? Let us know in the comments!
R&M is like the one crossover they needed to do along time ago, Don't play fortnite, but quite happy to see him in.
I did not see Superman with a gun in the video. I think he might use his eyeballs?
So either Samus really isn't coming to Fortnite or they're waiting for E3 to do a joint reveal with Samus in Fortnite and a Fortnite character in Smash.
This game seems to be very random. I can see why it is popular based on roster alone.
Got to give it to them: I like how they did Rick on his own style.
Also, is this where they would put Samus?
Samus is for sure coming this season. E3 reveal?
Not my thing, but my 12-year-old son is loving the new season so far. I’ll second the randomness comment - they went from dinosaur and primal season straight into alien season. Huh?
I don’t think Samus is happening. If she was coming to the game as a skin (which would be weird, because she wouldn’t be able to use her arm cannon), she would’ve been a natural fit during the bounty hunter season, which has already ended. That’s when Master Chief showed up.
I highly doubt Samus is ever coming to fortnite. I wouldn't hold my breath for it at E3.
If samus was coming, It's either the bounty hunter season or this season. She's from a game where the whole point is FIGHTING ALIENS
Remember: If you really can't stand Fortnite, don't click on an article about it
@Yosher "a Fortnite character in Smash"
Oh god, don't even joke about that. The Smash fandom might actually go nuclear.
@Yosher Why would there need to be a Fortnite rep in Smash exactly?
Now, Superman can hold a gun, but back in the day, DC didn't let Titus have a Superman game where he could freely fly everywhere and could pick up cars, in fear that players would use that to "hurt" bystanders, since that is something Superman shouldn't do. And, because of those restrictions, we got Superman 64.
I'm super excited about this, when I get home from work I'm definitely gonna put some time into it, I have battle pass & will totally rock Rick & Supes. I've not been into Fortnite for too long but this update & new unlocks/features has me really hyped to play it. P
@Slowdive Rumours. Just like Samus in Fortnite is a rumour, Nintendo turning it down is a rumour. Considering Mario got into Minecraft and Steve got into Smash, I'm not ruling anything like this out anymore.
@Entrr_username Same reason as to why a character like Steve got in: because Fortnite is a big deal right now and has been for a while. Yes I know Minecraft is like, the best selling game ever, but I wouldn't entirely rule out a Fortnite character in Smash. Lots of people play Fortnite, so they may be trying to win Fortnite players over into playing Smash that way. I don't believe it actually WILL happen mind you, I'm just not ruling it out at this point.
@HannahRPG You're saying that like they don't do that already on a daily basis.
@CartoonDan No, every character uses guns in the game which IMO doesn't fit 99% of the super hero characters they put in the game. Some would make sense like Deadpool, Deathstroke, or the Punisher but Superman? Batman?? Its just dumb
Please don't joke about Fortnite characters in Smash. Honestly, I dont even want there to be an Assist Trophy, or even a spot on the spirit board. I've always felt like Fortnite was a new hot trend that will burn bright and die fast.
But after spending time with my 12 & 15 year old nephews, and seeing how much time and energy they're STILL putting into that game, I no longer think that its a phase that will eventually die out. It has definitely peaked already, and will likely never hit the same amount of sales that they had a couple years back. But Fortnite is here to stay for a long while still, and its inclusion in Smash shouldn't be ruled out. Millions of Fortnite players will be elated by this. And may god have mercy on all the rest of us.
@drewber2635 agreed and shame on DC for allowing it TBH. Batman doesn’t use guns. Isn’t it his kinda thing he is anti gun?!? Why would DC sign off on this except greed.
@Yosher Well you're not wrong lmao.
But I think the addition of a Fortnite character would spawn a wave of salt that would dwarf the Byleth and Steve controversies.
People are REALLY negative about Fortnite these days.
@drewber2635 Superman and Batman shooting people with machine guns does seem a little off
I could definitely see Jonesy, Fish Sticks, or Peely in Smash Bros., taunting with emotes and using a rocket launcher to knock all of the numbers out of their opponent as a final smash. Prepare yourselves now.
I can't stand Fortnite at all. Really dislike it. But I can't deny that I'm impressed that they manage to get, basically ALL the licensing deals. Whoever they have doing that kind of negation at Epic Games, they're either a genius, or they have blackmail, or there's some deal with the devil they have made.
I don't like the game at all, but I can't deny the really impressive levels of success they have had. I don't understand or agree, but I can't deny it.
Dr. Slone is hardly an original character when she is basically a gender swapped version of Moss from the IT Crowd down to the same bloody shirt!
I really hope Samus pops up next week. I’ve been saving for her for ages! I also hope Jonesy appears in Smash. His inclusion would make a change from another bloody sword fighter and it’s not like they’re going to include another classic character like Wonderboy or Alex Kidd.
If I’m honest I quite like it when self-obsessed fandoms get a bit of a kick in the teeth from something they don’t like. It brings their arrogant ‘how dare you mess with MY franchise’ opinions into view and brings them down a peg. (See: The Last Jedi)
I feel like If samus was going to be in she would have been in the bounty hunter season. I mean that season also had the alien franchise so it would have been a match made in heaven putting the franchises that inspired others together.
@Yosher god I hope not
I love this game lol.
Is it just me or do they pump out new content for Fortnite at an inhuman pace? x___x
Ah Superman on thing he has been missing in recent movies and shows is that legendary gun he used to use all the time...
Pretty sure when it is all said and done everything will have some kind of representation in Fortnite.
