Exciting news for fans of Doctor Who and Fortnite. According to Fortnite leaker and dataminer iFireMonkey, a “potential collaboration” between Doctor Who and Fortnite is currently set to take place in the form of a two-week special event.
The event will reportedly include a set of free rewards for completing the challenge, as well as cosmetic items from the Item Shop. iFireMonkey revealed that there will be two skins, two pickaxes, one glider, and one emote. The leaker also teased a free Beep the Meep spray coming soon as an added incentive for players to check out new maps related to the rumored collaboration.
“We’ve recently learned that there have been discussions about a potential collaboration between Fortnite and Doctor Who,” iFireMonkey explained on Twitter. “As far as I know, this will be a two-week in-game event offering a series of free rewards for completing challenges and item shop cosmetics.”
The potential collaboration is currently expected to tie into the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who, which is set to take place later this year. Rumors are circulating that UNIT’s old friend Doctor Who may also be involved. Commenting on the issue, iFireMonkey said, “This was likely planned for November, as things like Beep the Meep have a lot to do with Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary special.”
Players got a glimpse of the suspected event with a screenshot shared by iFireMonkey. The screenshot doesn’t reveal much information, but the inclusion of the term “UNIT TARDIS Alert” certainly suggests that travel through time and space may be involved at least to some extent.
Collaborating with Fortnite is expected to be an important step for Doctor Who given the game’s immense popularity and massive player base. This event is likely to attract new fans to the immensely popular and incredibly long-running sci-fi series.
While players wait for more details on a potential collaboration between Fortnite and Doctor Who, fans of both games can rest assured that a special gift awaits them in the coming months. With free rewards and cosmetics promised in addition to a handful of special items, this event is sure to be one of the most exciting Fortnite crossovers in recent memory.
