Fortography competition

With the arrival of these new items and skins, the next Fortography theme was announced. Fortography is a competition running on Twitter. Players are called to equip themed emotes, stage a creative scene, and grab a screenshot. Competitors share their creations on Twitter using #Fortography for the chance to be featured in Fortnite’s next blog post.

The new theme is 1V1. Square off with your mates in your new Street Fighter skins or choose your favorite outfit and get creative. Check out some of the submissions on Twitter for inspiration.

Who’s next?

What will be the next Fortnite crossover? There have already been leaks of G.I Joe potentially landing in the game. The Flash has been released and is still available in the store and Tron has recently come and gone. Fortnite doesn’t appear to have an affinity for any particular brand, having crossovers with both Marvel and DC characters, Nintendo, Disney and more. Who knows which of our favorites will be next?
