Yet another Fortnite collaboration is on its way, as Epic Games have revealed their collaboration with Destiny 2, bringing skins and more inspired by the FPS franchise.

Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration, with the Dragon Ball event currently taking the island by storm, and Lord of the Rings and Doom skins possibly coming later down the line.

In the past, Fortnite crossovers have been fairly one-way, taking a well-known character and dropping them into Epic’s growing roster of skins. However, it appears that Fortnite is making the jump into other games after revealing cosmetics inspired by Destiny 2.

Here’s everything we know about the Destiny 2 and Fortnite crossover, from the skins included to the release date.

Epic have officially revealed their crossover with Destiny 2, revealing cosmetics and more. The official date players will be able to get their hands on the content on offer is August 23, 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT / 1 AM August 24 BST.

This is also the day that Destiny 2 Season 18: Lightfall is set to be revealed and Bungie will reveal all of its plans for the next few months.
