The ‘Terminator’ Franchise is the Next Crossover in ‘Fortnite’!
Yesterday The Predator finally made its way into Fortnite, joining a guest cast of genre characters that begs for more additions. Well, you won’t have to wait very long, as leakers have let the cat out of the bag with The Terminator franchise making a stop during the Chapter 2 Season 5 Battle Pass.
To round things up, rumours of The Terminator’s arrival began when Twitch streamers such as @TheSquattingDog received care packages from Epic Games, which just so happened to contain a pair of sunglasses that were very reminiscent of the T-800’s shades from Terminator 2.

Now, there’s a new portal on the map that shows off an image that eagle-eyed fans of the film will recognize as the Cyberdyne Systems office, also from Terminator 2. Not only that, but the game has also introduced a new lever-action shotgun that has a reload animation mimicking Arnold’s reloading of the gun in the 1991 classic.
And today, there was this little Tweet from the official Fortnite account hinting that Sarah Connor could be the next skin in the game!

And hey, to top it off, someone found the official image, confirming that not only will players get a Sarah Connor skin, but a T-800 endoskeleton skin, as well!
No release date has been set for the skins and challenges (because there will be), so keep your eyes peeled.
