To celebrate the release of the third season of Netflix's TV series Stranger Things, Epic Games have introduced a new event in Fortnite, with a couple of special items - Chief Hopper and Demogorgon outfits as well as special Vines Wrap.

Epic Games have officially detailed Fortnite's latest crossover event that brings Demogorgons monsters from Netflix's megapopular TV series Stranger Things to the battle royale. 

While the new event does add a couple of new items, many will be disappointed that it doesn't bring a new limited-time mode. Yes, there are strange portals from the TV series all over the map, but Epic Games did not reveal if these will affect gameplay in any way.

It's possible that they are in the game just for the looks, or maybe, Epic Games are teasing something special that could arrive at a later date. This is just a guess of course and there are no indications that the publisher plan to introduce a new limited-time mode.

However, there are some datamined files from the latest update that show two new modes, but it's unclear if Epic are readying them for Stranger Things crossover event.

Anyway, the crossover event still adds a couple of notable items such as two skins that will allow players to play as Chief Hopper or the Demogorgons. These cost 1,500 and 1,200 v-bucks respectively. Furthermore, there's a new weapon wrap named Vines, which can be seen below.

Earlier this week, along with the already mentioned teleports from the TV series, Epic Games also introduced Scoops Ahoy ice cream powerups, which give players a healing effect of 5 health, just like apples, only less healthy.

And that would be it for the time being, we'll keep you updated if Epic Games announce something new during the event. You can find Epic Games' announcement on their official Twitter profile .
