KEY POINTS

  • An Epic Games exec said this is "just the beginning" of "Fortnite" and Marvel's collaboration
  • The director teased that Epic has "lots of stuff" planned for "Fornite's" Marvel integration
  • The Ghostbusters have made an appearance in "Fortnite" just in time for Halloween

Even after the end of Season 4 of “Fortnite” and the Nexus War, the partnership between the game and Marvel will continue.

Donald Mustard, worldwide creative director at Epic Games, revealed on the “This Week in Marvel” podcast that more Marvel content is coming to the game. Though he didn't reveal what projects they have in store for fans, the exec confirmed that the crossover won't end anytime soon.

“This is just the start. 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,” Mustard said.

Marvel and “Fortnite” first joined forces in 2018 just in time for the release of “Avengers: Infinity War,” resulting in the creation of the Infinity Gauntlet mode. The crossovers saw characters like Thor, Wolverine, Captain America and Blade making appearances in the game.

Already on its fourth season, “Fortnite” continues to keep gamers interested by reinventing itself through crossovers since its release in 2017. Aside from its ongoing Marvel partnership, “Fortnite” is also getting another DC Comics crossover on Nov. 17 with the release of the new DLC called “Fornite: The Last Laugh Bundle,” which features skins for the Joker and Poison Ivy.

Even “Star Wars” has made its way to “Fortnite” in the form of a glider taking on the form of an X-Wing fighter.

Yet no collaboration has been as extensive as its partnership with Marvel. By confirming an extension of the collaboration beyond the Nexus War, “Fortnite” is giving reassurance to players who might have just picked up the game for the chance to see skins of the X-Men or to battle the god-like Galactus at its conclusion. There are, after all, nearly eight decades of Marvel Comics stories that can be used as storylines for future seasons.

For now, the annual Fortnitemares celebration for Halloween has arrived, along with its creepy seasonal skins and limited items that are available until Nov. 3. This year, singer J Balvin will be performing at the Afterlife Party on Saturday.

If that’s not enough, the Ghostbusters will be bringing their proton packs, ghost traps, and ecto-gliders will be available in “Fortnite” for a limited time.
