Unconfirmed reports suggest Epic Games’ Fortnite might be joined by Mediatonics’ similarly popular Fall Guys, Ultimate Knockout for a cross-promotional event.
There are a few commonalities between Fortnite by Epic Games, and Fall Guys Ultimate Knockout from Mediatonic. Both games share a passion for silly clothes and cross-dressing costumes, competitive multiplayer, vibrant colors, and a love for colorful graphics.
Despite the differences in gameplay, the visual aesthetics seem to be compatible enough to be combined in one game or series. This potential could soon be realized, as several Fortnite-themed cosmetics will be available in Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout very soon.
Data miners recently discovered several files that were related to cosmetic crossovers. The leak was shared by the account on Twitter FNLeaksAndInfo. Some files were first discovered in February, when speculations about a Fortnite/Fall Guys crossover began to circulate. Although the developers had initially deleted the data in the early part of this year, the latest breach shows that they were re-added. Dataminers also discovered additional files that contained information about Fortnite-inspired cosmetics.
