Stranger Things season three is finally here, and according to early impressions, it might just be the best one yet. It’s also going to mean big things for Fortnite Battle Royale fans.

The hit Netflix show has already started making its mark inside the game, with portals to the Upside Down recently appearing in Mega Mall. And now we’ve got our first glimpse at new Stranger Things skins.

Stranger Things is by far the most mature Fortnite crossover so far. The show itself is rated TV–14 in the U.S., but it can get pretty creepy at times — and Epic Games isn’t holding back.

One of the leaked skins on its way to Battle Royale is that of a terrifying Domogorgon.

The monstrous creature comes complete with a gaping face full of sharp teeth, and huge hooves that would make buying shoes a nightmare. It’s pretty disgusting at first glance, but when you see it throwing shapes for Fortnite dances, it looks pretty hilarious.

The other leaked Stranger Things skin is that of Chief Hopper. He looks exactly as you would expect in his trim police uniform, sporting a gold badge and shotgun shells strapped to his legs.

For now, these are the only two Stranger Things skins that have surfaced ahead of their official debut — but you can bet there will be more. If we have Chief Hopper, we will almost certainly get the rest of the gang. The more Epic offers, the more money it will rake in.

Stranger Things x Fortnite crossover still unclear

Despite it being launch day for Stranger Things season three, we still don’t know what exactly the Fortnite crossover has in store. Fans assumed we would get more details today, but it’s yet to happen.

In addition to the skins, we’re expecting new limited-time game modes. We’re also hoping we’ll get more from those portals in Mega Mall. They simply transport you to other parts of the mall for now, but if they don’t take us to a virtual Upside Down later, it will be a crying shame.
