The Fortnite Summer Splash 2020 event has been announced and Epic revealed what people can expect from the seasonal festivities including the return of fan-favorite limited timed modes (LTMs), new outfits, and more.

The sunny celebration on the Fortnite battlegrounds comes a few weeks after the developers drowned the island in the aftermath of the major blockbuster tie-in starring Aquaman.

Conveniently, that means the state of the battle royale is perfect for Epic to host a Summer Splash event that should have all the regular fixings for the hottest season of the year.

Classic and revamped LTMs

There’s going to be a host of classic game modes coming back to Fortnite. We have LTMs like Fog of War (formerly Sneaky Silencers that dates back to January 2018), Close Encounters, Catch!, and Unvaulted.

These are just a few of the limited time playlists that Fortnite is bringing back from now until the end of Season 3. Some of these modes have been slightly updated to include new features that have been added to the game since their debut.

Epic also teased that completely new LTMs will be coming in future updates as the summer progresses and gave a taste of what they have in store for their fans.

“Brand new LTMs will kick off in a future update and include new takes on Operation: Knockout, a reel ‘em in royale, and a game of elimination-powered upgrades,” Epic said in their post.

Summer Vibe outfits

The devs are really going to dial in with the sights and sounds of a classic Summer break with outfits and cosmetics that lend itself to a hot afternoon on the coast.

“Summer Splash will also feature new Outfits and other Item Shop items inspired by all things summer: sand, sea, sports, and — of course — good food.”

This includes the Par Patroller skin, the Cozy and Comfy Chomps outfit, and the return of Summer Drift as well as Beach Bomber.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths time and time again, and it looks like their integration won’t be slowing down any time soon after Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard confirmed they have content planned for “many years.”

Fortnite is the gift that keeps on giving, even after all these years. New seasons and chapters keep it fresh by adding content and ditching other bits and pieces to mix things up.

Typically, each one introduces a new storyline complete with events, map changes, and themes. Naturally, that means players also get their hands on new skins, vehicles, weapons, and more.

Fortnite has had a series of incredible crossovers along the way too, including integrations with Batman, John Wick, Star Wars, and Stranger Things, to name a few. However, none have come close to the sheer level of epicness as Fortnite x Marvel.

Fortnite and Marvel have crossed paths many times before.

Marvel crashed its way into Fortnite back when Avengers: Infinity War released in cinemas. It happened again with Avengers: Endgame. Fortnite even found it’s way into the movie. And of course, it’s happening again right now.

It’s a mutually beneficial relationship, and one that fans of both franchises would love to see more of. Thankfully, their prayers have now been answered.

Fortnite X Marvel will happen for “many years”

Epic Games’ Creative Director Donald Mustard opened up about the crossovers between Fortnite and Marvel in the latest episode of the ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast. He confirmed that the two worlds would collide for many years to come.

“This is just the start,” he said. “This is the start of lots of stuff we have planned for many years in this Marvel integration. Like, this is not the end. This is the beginning.”

You can listen to the full episode here. This quote and the discussion around it start at the 38:20 mark.

Donald Mustard may have said too much

Many thought the current crossover could be the last. But thankfully, Donald Mustard himself confirmed that isn’t the case, although he says he might have “dropped too many hints” in his time on the podcast.

If you listen to the whole episode, you’ll realize how passionate he is about Marvel. He’s been a long time fan for many years, and being able to integrate his favorite characters into Fortnite has been a dream come true.

What’s more, he’s proud of the fact that Fortnite has become a part of the Marvel universe as well. For example, the Fortnite x Marvel Nexus War is canon. It’s even been published as an official comic.

Either way, it doesn’t matter whether you recognize it as official or not. Fortnite x Marvel has been a smash hit, and it’s here to stay.
