Could this be the next major crossover?
Fortnite is a massively popular game. This is a flexible game that gets updated weekly. And recently, the game opened a new portal.
It appears that it’s a Street Fighter portal. Chun Li and Ryu are expected to walk through that door. You can see it in Epic Games’ battle royale.
It’s not the first crossover, though. Fortnite gamers had the chance to see Kratos from God of War.
This season is packed with other crossovers. You could find some characters from the Walking Dead, Tron, Mandalorian, and Baby Yoda, among others.
Last season, a massive crossover happened with the Marvel theme.
When you come close to the mysterious portal located in the southwest of Sweaty Sands, you’ll hear the faint rendition of the Street Fighter 2 theme.
It’s uncertain what content you can expect based on the nature of Fortnite’s past crossovers. It could be a Street Fighter skin that you can use or some weapons that you can apply, or a map related to the iconic fighting game.
Fortnite is a 100-player battle royal mode, which is inspired by PUBG.
Each match can last for 20 minutes or less.
Fortnite’s developer, Epic Games, updates the game faster than other video games. It’s a great way to entice players so they keep on playing.
Even if you don’t win a lot, you can still log in to the game regularly. There are several ways to play. You can also connect with your friends making it a social experience.
Professional gamers broadcast their playtime on YouTube and their fans can watch live. Fortnite also allows friends to chat and play no matter what platform they are using.
The game aims to entertain its millions of players at once. And Epic Games provided players the platform to offer a unique interactive experience.
Fortnite and Apple battle
Unfortunately, its maker, Epic Games, is fighting a battle against a massive tech company — Apple.
The court battle is still ongoing. And recently the company filed an antitrust complaint against the iPhone maker in the European Union.
This is the company’s way to push its fight against Apple for its unfair digital platform practices.
According to the complaint, Apple allegedly “harmed and eliminated competition in-app distribution and payment processes.”
It added that:
“What’s at stake here is the very future of mobile platforms. Consumers have the right to install apps from sources of their choosing and developers have the right to compete in a fair marketplace. We will not stand idly by and allow Apple to use its platform dominance to control what should be a level digital playing field. It’s bad for consumers, who are paying inflated prices due to the complete lack of competition among stores and in-app payment processing. And it’s bad for developers, whose very livelihoods often hinge on Apple’s complete discretion as to who to allow on the iOS platform, and on which terms.”
In August 2020, Apple removed Fortnite from the iOS App Store for violating its policies. Epic Games bypassed Apple’s in-app payment system.
