Portals in Fortnite tied to Stranger Things crossover event

UPDATE: Dancing Demogorgons incoming.

UPDATE 5th July 2019: Epic has revealed some shiny new Stranger Things skins for its crossover event with the show. Unlike previous crossovers, this event doesn't seem to have a limited-time game mode, however the new cosmetics mean you can break out your moves dressed as Chief Hopper or the Demogorgon.

I think I just sold two Demogorgon skins for Epic from r/FortNiteBR

Along with the new skins there's also a new Vines weapon wrap that will be available. You can check them out in the Tweets here:

ORIGINAL STORY 4th July 2019: Since the beginning of Fortnite season nine, fans have been spotting hints to Netflix's popular show Stranger Things in-game, the most intriguing of which being multiple glowing portals.

The only area they've been found in so far is the Mega Mall, along with a few other nods to the show, like the addition of the Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream Parlor.

Reddit user TAK_Blitz had found six of the mysterious portals as of yesterday, and more are supposedly cropping up.

In the video below you can get an idea of the portals in action, and while nothing sinister comes out of them (yet), they do allow you to teleport to another portal somewhere in the mall.

While Epic haven't revealed any specifics about the event, the crossover was announced yesterday ahead of Stranger Things season three's release today.

We don't know fully what the crossover will entail just yet, but going from Fortnite's other crossover events there'll likely be at least a few cosmetics and maybe even some more drastic changes to the map to reflect the goings on in the Netflix series.
