It looks like popular Australian YouTuber and streamer, Lannan “Lazarbeam” Eacott will be the next creator featured in the series. He first teased the announcement with a scheduled video, then showcased his skin at 5:00 PM EST on March 1.

New Fortnite portal points to Xenomorph from Alien

A new portal has opened in Fortnite, suggesting that Xenomorph from Alien will be the next hunter coming to Season 5.

Fortnite Alien crossover

The Fortnite Season 5 crossovers continue to roll in as a new portal has appeared on the map. A glimpse at the inside of the portal reveals an upcoming crossover with the Alien franchise.

This Fortnite season has been the most crossover-filled in the history of Fortnite. We’ve seen characters from Terminator, God of War, Halo, Predator, Street Fighter, and many other franchises come to the Fortnite Item Shop.

Recently, fans saw some leaks that led them to believe that Peter Griffin from Family Guy could be the next crossover skin. He still might be on his way, but we have someone else coming ahead of him: Xenomorph from the Alien franchise.

There’s still hope for Peter Griffin, but this could be the XL skin that data miners told us about. Xenomorph will likely resemble The Devourer skin, which is one of the bigger skins in the game.

These portals usually come to Fortnite a day or so before the skin comes to the Item Shop. We expect to see the Street Fighter skins leave the shop on February 25, ushering in a new trailer and skin set for the Alien Crossover.

Of course, the addition of Alien brings the Alien vs. Predator theme to Fortnite as well. It will be interesting to see if Epic do anything neat with the skin, like add him to the game as a boss. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the release date.

Fortnite March Crew Pack

The next Fortnite Crew membership pack has been revealed for March 2021, featuring the Llambro skin and accompanying cosmetic set.

In 2021, Epic introduced the Fortnite Crew subscription. This monthly pack gives players an exclusive cosmetic set, 1,000 V-Bucks, and access to the current Battle Pass for $11.99.

Since then, we’ve seen four skin packs enter the game, with a fifth on the way. Epic have confirmed leaks that point to the Llambro Outfit, Up North Back Bling, Puffcorn Pick Pickaxe, and The Llegend Wrap coming to the game in March 2021.

Since this pack will coincide with the start of Fortnite Season 6, players who subscribe to March’s Crew subscription will also receive access to the Battle Pass; making it an excellent deal for those who want the skin and don’t have enough V-Bucks for the Battle Pass.

If you subscribe now, you can also gain access to February’s skin pack, which features Vi. You can buy the subscription now, wait until the new season, and cancel it if you want to go that route. Doing this would grant you two skin sets, 1,000 V-Bucks, and the next Battle Pass for only $11.99.

Fortnite February Crew pack

There are only a few weeks left in Fortnite Season 5, and we’re excited to see what the next season will bring. Until then, you can prepare yourself by finishing the Battle Pass with the weekly challenges and grabbing the next Fortnite Crew Subscription.

We’ll be covering the new Fortnite season as soon as we hear any news, so make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite updates.
