There have been some amazing crossovers with our favorite entertainment franchises and Fortnite lately. Season 4 starred some of the biggest superheroes and villains from the Marvel universe, with Thor, Galactus, Doctor Doom, and more battling it out across the Island to try and save the world. Season 5 is currently treating fans to the Star Wars canon. Since the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda are joining the game with the greatest hunting duos in the galaxy, it’s no surprise players will see more hunters introduced. What players might not expect is that those hunters may be coming from two flagship console games: God of War and Halo.

The God of War is coming to Fortnite
In a surprise twist, the PlayStation Twitter account released a quick audio clip featuring Agent Jonesy talking about not researching new targets to come to the island.
Reality log #32. Note to self, do not research targets before transporting them to the island because if you do, you might find out a few things you really don’t wanna know like, I don’t know, for example, the next guy that you’re picking up has literally vanquished multiple gods with his bare hands in a fit on uncontrollable rage. Here we go.
Few gaming characters can claim unspeakable rage and having “vanquished” gods, and that’s Kratos from the God of War franchise. While Kratos was not specifically mentioned, it is not a hard guess. Fortnite leaker HYPEX appears to have revealed Kratos’ design, where he is modeled after the 2018 entry to the series.
Nothing else has been confirmed, but players should expect a Leviathan ax harvesting item and possibly a skin of Kratos’ son, Atreus.

Fortnite leaks suggest Master Chief is coming too
Not to be outdone by Sony, Microsoft appears to have its own Fortnite tie-in with a Master Chief outfit. Neither 343 Industries nor Epic Games have confirmed that Halo’s Master Chief will be in Fortnite. Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks released three screenshots of what appears to be in-game models based on the Halo series.

These show off an outfit for Master Chief, a Lil’ Warthog emote, and a UNSC Pelican glider.
Neither Microsoft nor Sony has confirmed when either iconic character will be coming to Fortnite. Kratos will likely be exclusive to PlayStation, while Master Chief will probably be an Xbox exclusive. While there is no release date for either of these two characters, make sure to follow Daily Esports for all your Fortnite news.
