It looks like none other than the Master Chief himself is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale.
Earlier today on December 3, the screenshots below were posted to Twitter via Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks, an account that has a history of leaking and datamining Fortnite content ahead of schedule. . As you can see, the Master Chief, a Warthog, and a Pelican will all move from the Halo universe to the Fortnite world.

It’s a pretty huge surprise, but much less after Kratos just leaked for Fortnite yesterday. A prolific Fortnite dataminer and leak yesterday revealed the existence of a Kratos skin for Fortnite, and soon after, the official Fortnite Twitter account began teasing the introduction of the Greek god himself.
Currently, we have no real idea of how you’re going to unlock the Master Chief and Kratos skins in Fortnite. Some users are suggesting that they will be a reward for players using their PS5 or Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S to play Fortnite, but it would make more sense if the collaboration skins were sold directly through the in-game item of Fortnite. shop.
Either way, Fortnite is welcoming Master Chief and Kratos is a pretty huge deal. Granted, I never would have thought that Sony or Microsoft would agree to put two of their most famous characters in Epic’s game, but I’m really happy that the collaborations were successful.
Yesterday also marked the arrival of Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 5: Zero Point, after Galactus invaded Fortnite Island to mark the end of the previous season in a huge live event (which was seen by over 15 million players worldwide). The new season features The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda, the former of which is a reward for purchasing the game’s new Battle Pass.
