Strange Marshmello music video found in Fortnite v7.20 update files

Published

on

Fortnite’s latest update went live on Tuesday, January 15, and dataminers have been working hard to find all the secrets hidden inside the patch files.

The 7.20 update brought with it the Scoped Revolver and the return of Glider Redeploy as an item, alongside lots of new leaked cosmetics items, including new skins, gliders and more.

While scouring the update files, it seems that leakers have come across a special music video featuring popular EDM artist Marshmello.

The video, found by @lucas7yoshi_, is five minutes long, and features a mix of some of Marshmello’s most popular tracks, alongside lots of visuals referring to the helmeted DJ.

What’s interesting about the video is the lack of reference to Fortnite, which is strange when the the video has been found inside the game files.

The video is likely to do with the upcoming partnership between Marshmello and Fortnite that was first announced by ‘Mello’s manager Moe Shalizi on Instagram, who said: “something is coming with Mello and Fortnite next month that’s going to have the world shook.”

While there are no exact details about what the collaboration will entail, it seems extremely likely that it will include some sort of in-game event now that a music video of the artist has been added to the game’s files.

This isn’t the first time that Marshmello and Fortnite have crossed paths, with the EDM star teaming up with his friend, and Twitch megastar, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins at the Fortnite Pro-Am competition at E3, with the pair actually winning the tournament.

What do you think the Marshmello event will be in Fortnite? Let us know!

Fortnite leak teases return of Star Wars Lightsabers

The Star Wars Lightsabers could make a return to Fortnite in the near future according to a notable data miner.

A Fortnite data miner has reported that Epic Games readded the Star Wars Lightsabers into Fortnite’s files after the v19.10 update.

Fortnite has held quite a few Star Wars crossovers, but none as ambitious as the live event in Chapter 2 Season 1. This introduced Lightsaber’s into the loot pool for a short period of time.

They were also available for an even shorter period of time from May 2nd – 5th during Chapter 2 Season 2. Since then, players have eagerly awaited their return.

Now, a Fortnite data miner thinks Lightsabers could return to Fortnite sometime soon due to a change in the game’s files.

Lightsabers may return to Fortnite

Epic Games removes weapon and item data from the files when that item isn’t in use. And when the data is readded to the files, it’s a good indicator players will see their return soon.

Fortnite data miner FN_Assist recently discovered that the data for Lightsabers was added after the most recent update. In a tweet, FN_Assist outlines all of the data that was readded.

They claim that this could mean one of two things. Either Star Wars Lightsabers will return to Fortnite in the near future. Or Epic is working on a weapon based on the lightsaber’s pre-existing mechanics.

If Lightsabers are added to Fortnite, we can expect it to accompany a return of skins and maybe some other Star Wars announcement.

Epic Games usually adds crossover content to promote whoever they are collaborating with. Whether it be a new movie or TV series, the Lightsabers could be used as a promotional tool for new Star Wars content.

Epic Games has sent another survey to select players with a list of potential Fortnite crossovers that it is considering for the game.

Fortnite has issued a number of these surveys in the past asking players for their opinions on a number of things. Surveys have also revealed crossovers and subscription services before their release. Some community-made skins and even the Fortnite Crew Pack have been a part of said surveys.

However, not every teased crossover that appears on a survey makes it into the game. These surveys are used by Epic Games to gauge interest in potential Fortnite crossovers. While some of the characters in Fortnite were on surveys first, such as Gugimon, the majority of the names of the surveys have yet to make it into the game.

That being said, each name on the list is a franchise or character that Epic Games is considering. Notable Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR on Twitter shared the latest surveys from Epic Games. Instead of sharing a full list of potential crossovers, Shiina highlighted some of the most interesting candidates.

The list is sepearated into eight sections: Musical Artists, TV Shows, Video Games, Comics/Manga, Influencers, Movies, Cartoons/Anime, and Video Game Characters. Some highly requested characters such as Naruto, Goku, and more are on the list.

There are also a few left-field candidates such as SpongeBob Squarepants, Luigi from Mario Bros., and Steve from Minecraft. Not included in Shiina’s shortlist is a large number of characters from The Office. While the majority of these crossovers may not make it into the game, it’s fun to imagine Ted Lasso running and gunning on The Island. A full list of potential crossovers can be found below.

Epic Games posted a couple of images to different Fortnite Twitter accounts that could be teasing upcoming content. Here’s everything we know about the new Fortnite alien teasers.

Fortnite Season 7 has been one of the most exciting and dynamic seasons of Chapter 2. Massive updates have been adding game-changing content regularly, which is something players haven’t experience in a while. Epic Games has also returned to teasing content both through social media and in the real world.

These Fortnite alien teasers have created a lot of excitement for Season 7. Now, players have found a few more teasers scattered around the internet that might be hinting at some upcoming content. Here’s what the teasers are showing and what players could expect to see in-game soon.

Fortnite teasers show potential POIs and NPCs

In classic Fortnite fashion, the official Twitter accounts have posted a few teasers for what could be a content update tomorrow. The English Twitter post only included words that hint at Alien ground troops being added to the game. While Alien troops can be found piloting saucers, they have yet to be added like the IO Guards.

However, different Twitter accounts for different regions have also included photos with their teasers. The Fortnite Middle East Twitter posted an image of a massive underground space ship. Players think this could be underneath Coral Castle or Steamy Stacks, and that it might be a new POI.

The official Spanish Fortnite Twitter posted a picture of a giant crop circle. This could also be hinting at another new POI, but it’s hard to say where a crop circle of this size would fit on the map.

Lastly, a Russian-language post from the social network VK was shared by BunkerFn on Twitter. This image showed an IO outpost close to Steamy Stacks with multiple satellite dishes. If these Fortnite alien teasers are actually showing new POIs, players are in for one massive content update.
