It’s one of many franchise crossovers seen in Fortnite, and even has its own lore explanation.
“In the Tron system, humans have found themselves rezzed onto the Grid within a vast digital frontier,” Epic Games explained.
“Now it’s your time. Grab your Light Suit and gear up as Grid Warriors to embark on a new journey…this time to the Island!”
As part of the update, there’s a new ‘End of Line’ collection in the Item Shop.

There are new player looks that include:
You can also get a Light Cycle rideable Glider, and an Identity Disc Pickaxe and Back Bling.
This isn’t the first crossover by Epic Games for Fortnite.
We’ve seen tie-ins with major franchises including Marvel’s Avengers and Star Wars (and the Mandalorian).
Fortnite also infrequently hosts major events with music artists like Travis Scott and Deadmau5.
Businesses and celebs are desperate to capitalise on the cultural success of Fortnite.
And due to the game’s young player base, it’s an easy way to reach a large portion of a very specific audience.
As of 2020, Fortnite has an estimated 350million players globally.
It’s one of the world’s most popular video games, despite being just a few years old.
In other news, The Sun’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.
Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.
And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
