Fortnite-Dune crossover gives us Zendaya and Ornithopters

To no one’s surprise, Dune The next major crossover Fortnite Insider HYPEX leaked nine themed items early Monday morning, and the film’s leading man, Timothée Chalamet, hit Instagram with a story showing his character, Paul Atreides, kitted out inside the battle royale.

The items include skins for both Paul and Chani, back bling for both (neither look that different, tbh), a “Sand Walk” emote, the Twinblades as a harvesting tool, and a hilarious loading screen. The Maker Hooks harvesting tools and Ornithopter gliders are perhaps the most fitting items. Either would be center square on anyone’s crossover bingo card.

Dune premieres Oct 22. There’s no specific launch date yet for these items, but it’s a good bet they’ll hit the game soon. When they do, HYPEX says they’ll be available in two bundles.

Zendaya and Chani are both stars of Chalamet’s unruly hair. DuneThe film’s first 10 minutes, which we saw in IMAX in July, was filmed by Denis Villeneuve. (Warning: spoilers). Director Denis Villeneuve is looking to break through a dense canon and 55 years of inertia that has kept Frank Herbert’s epic from mainstream cinematic success.
