‘Stranger Things’ arrives in ‘Fortnite’ with upside down portals

And while viewers are prepped for the 4th of July drop, they still have one question: What exact time should we get ready to binge all eight episodes at once? Fortnite's Mega Mall location is apparently rife with "upside down portals" inspired by the Netflix series, Stranger Things.

It looks like, just days ahead of Netflix's Stranger Things series three premiere on July 4, Fortnite players are starting to see more signs of the crossover we've heard about appearing in their games.

As of Wednesday morning, orange portals began appearing inside Fortnite's Mega Mall, which can be found near the middle of the map.

The upside down portals don't deliver players to the Upside Down, but they do spirit them away to other locations within the mall itself.

The Independent also reported Fortnite creator Epic Games also dropped several Stranger Things ice creams around the mall, which gives players +5 health.

The proposal has increased fears of eroding freedoms in the territory that was returned to China in 1997. After previous mass protests in Hong Kong , the mainland government staged tactical retreats.


It's unclear if the extent of the crossover is just a few portals or a few portals, skins, and an LTM.

If you're not up on your Stranger Things lore, the Upside Down is the home of demons and demogorgons - so we may even see some PvE elements appear in the game for the duration, similar to how we saw enemies introduced in the Fortnitemares update.

The pair have teamed up to release two Stranger Things-themed videos.

Following Netflix's confirmation of the crossover event with Fortnite on June 13th, the festivities appear to be kicking off. Skins? A themed world?

Stranger Things Season 3 is set in the summer of 1985, with the official description teasing that the group, 'is on the cusp of adulthood'.
