Epic Games have finally confirmed that a brand new Borderlands 3 collaboration is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale, bringing a whole host of new cosmetics, free rewards, and huge changes to the desert biome as well. 

The developers of the popular free-to-play title had hinted at the arrival of Fortnite X Mayhem content just a day before the v10.20 patch went live in-game and it has now been announced. 

This collaboration will be a limited-time addition to the battle royale game mode and is set to end on September 10, bringing some new features in the meantime. A fresh Pandora Rift Zone location has popped up in the spot where players spotted a Rift Beacon, replacing the Truck ‘n’ Oasis Truck Stop.

Now, the location looks very much like something you would expect to see from the Gearbox Software series, as the new themed point of interest has been added, but that's not all.

While there is no official timeframe for the release of those challenges, if the crossover is only lasting until September 10, then fans can expect to see them added to the game shortly after the update.
