For those who might be new to the Fortnite scene, this is far from the first inter-game crossover between Fortnite and a major series from another publisher. Other recent game-based tie-ins include Uncharted, League of Legends, and Gears of War—and that's noot even getting into the broader pop-culture crossovers with everything from X-Men to Star Wars, The Rock, and—sure, why not—Air Jordans. In fact, Epic just kicked off Amazing Web Week (opens in new tab) in Fortnite that gives players a chance to earn Spider-Man's Web Shooters as loot.
