Epic Games have teased another collaboration in Fortnite Battle Royale with Borderlands 3 being the focus.

Epic Games shared an image on August 26 to announce their new Fortnite x Mayhem collaboration. On Twitter, the developer put out a simple caption of “When you see it…” alongside a mosaic of some of the game’s most popular skins.

The image drops a lot of references to the upcoming release of Borderlands 3 and its subtitle “BRING THE MAYHEM,” including a photo of Psycho in the bottom-left corner.

The developers of Fortnite have done multiple pop culture crossovers in the past to bring new cosmetics to the game. John Wick, the Marvel Universe, and Stranger Things all feature within the popular Battle Royale game.

Fans are already speculating what will appear in the crossover. The consensus is that there’ll be a skin of Borderlands’ Psycho added to the shop, but nothing is set in stone.

Popular Fornite content creator Avery ‘Avxry’ Lopriore chucked in a quick joke, saying “So awesome that the Halo Grunt is coming to fortnite kappa.” 

While the Borderlands franchise might not ring a bell for some players, the title is well respected within the community. The last Borderlands game, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, was released in 2014, while Borderlands 2 was dropped in 2012.

Borderlands 3 is set to be an Epic Games exclusive after developers Gearbox partnered with the Steam competitor in April. It’ll hit the Epic Games Store from September 13, and wider channels in April 2020.

There is no official date for the Mayhem collection to be released, but the latest update for Fortnite is expected to drop on August 27.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s rumored there will be another blackout between Season 4 and Season 5

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
