As the Stranger Things 3 Premiere nears, Epic Games appears to be kicking off the Fortnite x Stranger Things in-game event; Portals resembling those found in the sci-fi drama can now be found around the game’s Mega Mall location!

Stranger Things’ third season is set to premiere on July 4th, 2019 at 2:00AM PT. Following Netflix’s confirmation of the crossover event with Fortnite on June 13th, the festivities appear to be kicking off. Upside-Down themed portals can be found on the walls of the Mega Mall point of interest which teleport the player to random areas of the facility.

Previously leaked assets also indicate that Fortnite players may have the opportunity to purchase Jim Hopper and Demogorgon skins for use in-game, though it’s important to note that this has not been confirmed at the time of writing.

July 2nd saw the addition of ice cream cones littered around the mall which slightly replenished the player’s health. Now, with the portals appearing and only 24 hours until the premiere, it’s currently unclear what else the collaboration could include.
