How to get the free Surf Strider bundle in Fortnite

Intel has partnered with Fortnite to bring a free Surf Strider bundle to their customers. Here’s how to claim it.

Fortnite is no stranger to platform-specific skin bundles, but it’s no secret that some platforms have gotten more love than others. PlayStation has several exclusive Fortnite skins with more on the way, while Xbox only has one or two.

PC players have been able to unlock some exclusive skins, but only if they have the right hardware. Epic have partnered with companies like Nvidia to offer their customers free Fortnite skins, but AMD never got any love.

This time around, it’s Intel CPU owners on PC who are able to grab an exclusive Fortnite skin. Epic and Intel announced their partnership and a free Surf Strider bundle – including the skin, pickaxe and glider.

As the promotional image says, this bundle is only available for PC players who have Intel Core processors. This means that PC players who have AMD processors are out of luck, in this instance.

Unlocking the bundle is a lot like unlocking all of the other brand-specific Fortnite cosmetics that have come before. You’ll need to visit the Intel website at softwareoffer.intel.com/Bonus, create an account, and link it with your Epic Games account.

From there, the Intel Page will run a test to ensure that your PC is eligible and award you with the skin. Here’s a video from data miner, Hypex, on how to complete the process.

The website appears to be down at the time of writing and seemed to be that way this past weekend, as well – ever since this promotion became widespread news. This is likely because so many Fortnite players are trying to claim their free skin bundle.

The promotion is set to last until February 2021, so you have plenty of time to claim the skin – even if it takes the website a full week to recover. We’ll keep this post updated when the website begins to pick up again.

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.
