Today (August 23rd), Bungie’s Destiny 2 Showcase confirmed the rumor that Fortnite would soon feature skins from the popular video game franchise. This crossover came to fruition alongside Epic Games’ agreement with Bungie to bring the series to the Epic Games Store.
However, for Fortnite fans, the juiciest detail arrived in the form of Destiny 2 outfits soon to release. Three characters from the expansive Destiny universe will be available to purcahse tonight at 8 PM EST. Here’s everything you need to know about the brand new Fortnite x Destiny 2 collaboration.
Commander Zavala, Ikora Rey, and The Exo Stranger come to Fortnite this evening
The Titan Vanguard himself — Commander Zavala — is the first of three Destiny characters to join Fortnite. He’s been part of the series since the first Destiny game, so it’s a worthwhile addition.

Play the Javelin-4 Destiny 2 creative map in Fortnite
In addition to the character outfits, Epic Games enlisted the Team PWR creative group to recreate a famous Destiny landscape. Those who input Island Code 0642-9767-7225 via Fortnite’s “Discover” menu will teleport to the Javelin-4 map.
The name of the game is “Control” on this landscape. Players will separate into two teams; the first to reach 200 points claim victory.
