The developer of Fortnite called Epic Games has been the kings of crossover events since the ramping up of Fortnite two years ago. We all have seen a few Marvel and Dc characters come to the game along with the others from popular TV shows, film franchises, and even real life.
The past two seasons of the game called Fortnite have focused on adding the superheroes to the game. Deadpool and Aquaman have been the two secret skins, and the developer released an official Captain America skin for the Fourth of July.
Epic Games is back at it again with another Marvel crossover. This time, they are promoting the new Avengers video game of Marvel that is set to officially release in September. Everyone who plays during the many closed and open beta will be able to complete HARM challenges in order to unlock the new Fortnite Hulk Smasher with the Hulkbuster style.
Apparently, there will be a number of different phases of the beta and they will all be exclusive to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The players who use PC will have to log onto a console if they want to get their free reward. As informed on the official website of Epic Games, the beta schedule is as follows:
- August 7-9: PlayStation 4 Pre-Order Beta
Marvel Avengers PlayStation 4 pre-order players only
- August 14-16: PlayStation 4 Open Beta
- August 14-16: Xbox One Pre-Order Beta
Marvel Avengers Xbox One pre-order players only
- August 21-23: Open Beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
For your information, the Avengers of Marvel costs $60 USD for the full game, even though the beta should be free for the console players. Ironically enough, the game shows up to be available on Steam but not on the official store of Epic Games.
No one knows what these HARM challenges entail and if they have any relation to the game called Fortnite. For now, you have to make sure that your Epic Games account is attached to your PlayStation or Microsoft account. Then, you will have to visit the Square Enix website, make an account, and link it with the Epic Games.
The players of Fortnite who use PC and those who do not want to participate in the Avengers beta will still have access to this unique Fortnite smasher through the in-game store, even though you will likely have to wait until the beta ends.
As stated in the first paragraph, Fortnite called Epic Games has been the kings of crossover events. Aside from Fortnite x Marvel, there were some other crossovers. The top list is Astronomical. This one is one of the most recent spectacles that Fortnite gave. With lockdowns in place across the world, Travis Scott and Fortnite presented a dizzying display through the event called Astronomical. Astronomical is a series of virtual concerts, which also gave us a debut song from the rapper and was an absolute treat. Apart from the music, the visual of it simply took in-game events to another level.
