Avatar x Fortnite collab: Release date, leaks, and more

This massive anime collaboration could break Fortnite!

Fortnite is adding Avatar: The Last Airbender to its growing list of anime collaborations. With just a few weeks remaining in Chapter 5 Season 1, Fortnite x Avatar leaks have surfaced. The information suggests this monumental crossover could occur in Chapter 5 Season 2, which launches next month. Here's everything we know about Fortnite's latest anime collaboration.

Avatar The Last Airbender x Fortnite: Everything we know so far

Reputable leaker iFireMoney was the first to reveal Epic Games' plan to launch a Fortnite x Avatar crossover. This news arrives just days after Netflix's live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Bender landed on the streaming service. Although the series has received a mixed reception, Fortnite fans should be excited at the possibility of an Aang Fortnite skin.

Here is a quick breakdown of what we know about the crossover per iFireMonkey:

  • There will be an upcoming mid-season Event Pass
  • Collect all 6 Books by completing quests to get the Appa Glider!
  • Instantly claim the AANG Fortnite Style and AANG LEGO Style!
  • Access the bottom reward track and earn more rewards!
  • Premium Reward Track items may be available in the Item Shop at a later date

Based on that information, the collaboration will function similarly to the Chapter 5 Season 1 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) event. Players will have the option to upgrade to the Premium Track of the Avatar Pass, which would give them access to the Aang Fortnite skin. Additionally, Fortnite will feature a separate Questline to celebrate the Avatar crossover.

When is the Avatar: The Last Airbender collaboration expected to arrive?

The leaks from iFireMonkey explicitly reference this being a "mid-season event pass," meaning the Fortnite x Avatar crossover will not be in the Chapter 5 Season 2 Battle Pass. Instead, this will be a separate pass that will arrive in May. With Fortnite's next season expected to feature a Greek Mythology theme, the Avatar anime is an interesting inclusion.

That covers everything we know, but check here for additional updates if anything further materializes.
