The legendary Alien movie franchise is the latest to team up with Epic Games for a crossover in Fortnite Season 5. Here’s how you can get your hands on the brand new Ellen Ripley and Xenomorph skins.

Fortnite Season 5 has introduced numerous crossovers with other franchises, as we’ve seen the arrival of Master ChiefThe Terminator, and The Flash, among others. Now, Epic Games have brought in some new cosmetics from the Alien franchise.

The iconic sci-fi heroine Ellen Ripley has shown up on Fortnite Island alongside her nemesis, the Xenomorph. There is also a cute Chestburster emote that comes with these skins, and here’s how you can get this bundle for yourself.

Certain Fortnite cosmetics sets become available immediately through the Battle Pass, while others have you complete a few challenges or quests first. Luckily, this Alien bundle requires far less effort for you to get it.

You can acquire the entire Space Gear Bundle from the Item Shop for a limited time. This cosmetics set consists of the following items:

  • Ellen Ripley Skin
  • Xenomorph Skin
  • Xenomorph Tail Back Bling
  • Xeno Menace (Built-in Emote)
  • Nostromo Crew Outfit
  • Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier
  • P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe
  • Cheyenne Dropship Glider
  • Burst Case Scenario Emote

The developers have done a great job of emulating the aesthetic of the 1979 classic with these items. You can choose to either terrify your opponents as the Xenomorph, or show how hard-hearted you can be as the iconic Ellen Ripley.

Epic Games confirmed in a official blog post that these cosmetic items are available from Thursday, February 25 onwards, but they haven’t elaborated on when the bundle will disappear from the in-game store.

Cosmetic bundles always come and go in Fortnite’s Item Shop, so we don’t expect these skins to stick around there for long. Which is why you should get your hands on the Alien set before it disappears.

With a few weeks of Fortnite Season 5 still left, we’re left wondering what other crossovers we can expect, with Family Guy’s Peter Griffin even being rumored to join the battle royale.

Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to bring lightsabers back to the battle royale as part of a new Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover.

Fortnite has become known for its major collaborations with other popular franchises. Epic Games have brought a ton of crossover content from the Star Wars universe to the battle royale.

The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass, and Boba Fett is currently an unlockable skin. Now, some leaks suggest that Epic Games are bringing back lightsabers as part of a Star Wars Obi-Wan collaboration.

According to notable Fortnite leaker ‘FNAssist,’ Epic Games re-added Star Wars lightsaber files in the v19.10 update. This means that they could be planning to bring them back to the game in the near future.

Lightsabers are some of the most iconic weapons in cinema history, and they were available as Mythic melee weapons during Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2. There were four differently-colored versions of them in the game.

Now, players are speculating that the weapon might be included in a collaboration with the upcoming ‘Obi-Wan’ Disney+ Star Wars series. We might also see the titular character arrive as a new skin.

The leaks state that the 19.10 update added lightsaber animations along with some melee combat mechanics, gameplay abilities, and VFX. This could mean that the weapon will make its return in the game.

Alternatively, they could be working on a new melee weapon and are basing it off the animation and abilities of the lightsaber. However, this information has yet to be verified by the developers themselves.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt until Epic Games officially announce something. We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this.

According to notable Fortnite data miners ‘HYPEX’ and ‘ralisdumb’ the classic Spider-Man villain will be flying into Fortnite as part of a new Marvel crossover. Players will unlock him as a new outfit.

Some leaks from ‘GMatrixGames’ have revealed the complete set of Green Goblin cosmetics that will be coming to Fortnite. These will presumably be part of a single bundle in the Item Store.

Here are all the leaked Green Goblin cosmetics:

  • Green Goblin outfit
  • Pumpkin Bomb Back Bling
  • Arm The Pumpkin emote
  • Goblin Glider
  • Attack Of The Goblin loading screen
  • Pumpkin Pickaxe

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has yet to be verified by Epic Games. So, take this with a grain of salt until the developers officially confirm Goblin’s arrival.

This classic villain is Spidey’s arch-nemesis and has appeared in multiple films, including the recent Spider-Man: No Way Home. So, it makes sense that Epic Games might add him after his recent surge in popularity.
