Epic Games just revealed a Fortnite x Futurama collaboration coming in update v25.20, and the crossover promises more than just cosmetics.
Fortnite is known for its eye-catching collaborations with mainstream films, TV shows, and other video games. Fortnite MEGA brought Eren Yeager, Claire Redfield, Miles Morales and more to the Battle Royale in the span of just two months. Fans expected Fortnite WILDS to follow suit, but the latest season only managed to deliver a quick collaboration with The Witcher.
After a slow July, Epic Games is finally letting a pop culture hit invade their Battle Royale. A Futurama crossover will be released in the next Fortnite patch in honor of the show’s Season 11 premiere.
Here’s everything we know about the Fortnite x Futurama collaboration.
Epic Games confirmed that the Fortnite x Futurama collaboration comes out on Wednesday, July 26, as part of update v25.20. They released a teaser for the crossover titled, “All Hail Hypnotoad” that showcases a Hypnotoad on a MEGA City billboard.
Without any leaks surrounding the crossover, it is hard to know for certain what features it will bring to the Battle Royale. We can expect new skins in the Item Shop, possibly including Leela, Fry, and Bender. The Bundles will surely come with matching cosmetics that will bring the characters to life in Fortnite.
Fortnite x Futurama could also be bringing the Hypnotoad in-game. The creature is known for its hypnosis powers, and could very well blend in with the other wildlife featured in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. Given the WILDS theme and the teaser, the Hypnotoad could be a new animal found throughout the jungle biome.
