- Even Fall Guys will get some Destiny-inspired cosmetics
In its first-ever major collaboration with another studio, Bungie is teaming up with Epic Games to bring crossover content to Destiny 2, Fortnite, and Fall Guys.
Bungie and Epic Partner Up
Crossovers have been a great way for products to share fanbases and increase their overall popularity. One could say that this is one of the factors that led to the popularity of games like Fortnite and Fall Guys. Both games are well-known for making crossovers with other gaming and non-gaming franchises often and their latest collaboration is going to be with Destiny.
During the recent 2022 Destiny 2 Showcase, developer Bungie revealed it is teaming up with Epic Games to bring Fortnite and Fall Guys. The somewhat unlikely crossover will see a ton of cosmetics coming to the three games. This will include skins and armor sets for Fortnite and Destiny respectively, inspired by the other game. Meanwhile, Fall Guys players will be able to unlock accessories inspired by Destiny’s three classes. They might even get some Ghost emotes along the way as well.
What Exactly Will Players Be Getting?
The collaboration came as a surprise to most even before it was officially announced. It was leaked on Twitter during the weekend, prompting many fans to gasp in disbelief. Many were worried this would not work out but after the release of the official trailer, most fans think the Fortnite cosmetics look well.
Speaking of Fortnite, Epic will add some iconic characters as player models in the game. Fans of the game will be able to duke it out in the battle royal while playing as Commander Zavala, Ikora, and the Exo Stranger. They will also be treated to new Destiny-inspired looks for gliders, pickaxes, and back bling. A creator map based on the Crucible map Javelin-4 will appear in Fortnite as well, and fans can jump in to do battle in the iconic Destiny space.
Meanwhile, Destiny players will be receiving some new armor sets inspired by Fortnite. Titans will get armor based on the Black Knight, Warlocks will get armor based on Drift, and Hunters will get armor based on Oblivion. These skins are already available with the start of the new Season of Plunder and players can purchase them from Destiny 2’s real-money Eververse store.
This collaboration marks Destiny’s first major foray into working with games outside of Bungie’s sphere. Last year, Bungie replicated some items inspired by its history, like Halo, Marathon, and Myth. But the studio had never before partnered with outside studios, however, perhaps this move is just the first of many future collaborations to come.
