Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Overwatch have all crossed over with each other thanks to the work of one talented designer.
Battle royales like Fortnite and hero shooters like Overwatch are all the rage right now among FPS players.
In early 2019, Apex Legends was able to step into the fray by mixing those two games together to make a hero-centric battle royale title, and now all three games are extremely popular.
Fortnite crossovers have already happened with many brands, so why not Apex and Overwatch?
The trio of games are different enough from each other than one player decided to figure out what Fortnite would look like with the Apex Legends and Overwatch interface, and the result of that is surprisingly good.
Reddit user DesertGrafittiMaker created a mockup showing just what Apex Legends’ character select screen would look like if it was filled with Fortnite characters instead.
Instead of selecting character skins in the menu of the game, you would instead choose them before the match, like Apex Legends.
Obviously, this wouldn’t be an effective system if you have a ton of skins, so you’d definitely have to select your favorites beforehand.
The mashups didn’t stop there, though, as the same Redditor gave us a glimpse at what the Overwatch character select screen would like in Fortnite, and that one might actually work a bit better.
Octane could use some company.
What it did do is separate the characters into DPS, Tanks, Healers, and Supports, which meant the creator had to decide what skin fell into each role.
You can take a look at what DesertGraffitiMaker decided on themselves for each of the characters below, and see if you agree.
Many fans are now wondering what the next crossover with Fortnite will be. The possibilities are near endless as we could see a mashup with League of Legends, Mario Kart, Rainbow Six: Siege, and many others.
Considering this same Redditor created both of the designs and each was very well received, it makes sense for them to just stop here. Keep an eye for their next creation soon if they decide to keep it going.
