The iconic Blood Gulch map is in Fortnite and fans everywhere can flock to the Battle Royale shooter to indulge in one of Halo’s most popular maps of all-time.

There had been some speculation that Halo was about to perform a sensational crossover with Epic Game’s Fortnite as the legendary soldier Master Chief’s skin was leaked prior to the announcement.

We then got the official confirmation during the 2020 Game Awards that not only a skin was incoming, but that players will now be able to wage war in Halo’s treasured Blood Gulch map.
