Fortnite collabs are having to get more specific as time draws on, because let's be honest, we're reaching a point where everyone has collaborated with the battle royale banger.

We've trudged through crossovers with the worlds of Marvel, Star Wars, DC and even anime with DragonBall Z and Attack on Titan touching down in-game. There's so much pop culture poured into the title, it's practically become the platform for crossovers in gaming - and it's only worked in Fortnite's favour.

Now, another suitably massive leak has indicated that one of gaming's most iconic franchises could yet drop onto the island. Draw your swords and get ready to make yourselves some delicious garlic bread

The Elder Scrolls could be on the way to Fortnite

According to reputable Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey, it looks like the world of Tamriel could be about to bleed onto the island in an Elder Scrolls crossover.

The leaker has claimed that the "Folk Evening" files that have been datamined from the game are of Gaming Legends rarity because they're part of a collaboration with the series - more specifically, The Elder Scrolls Online.

The cosmetic set is shown in the tweet, offering a look at the crossover's skin, weapon wrap, and harvesting tool. We didn't need much convincing, but that looks a lot like an Elder Scrolls crossover to us. Just when you thought the Doctor Who crossover was the most exciting one on the cards. 

When could The Elder Scrolls come to Fortnite?

As the entire pack appears to have been peeled from the files, it's likely a potential Fortnite x The Elder Scrolls collaboration could be very close. Considering The Elder Scrolls 6 is years away, it's good to keep the franchise's fans involved.

It'd be safe to presume that if the collection is intended for the item shop rather than the Battle Pass, it wouldn't be a shock to see the items arrive in the store at some point in the next week. So, start saving those V-Bucks. 

It might not be the Dragonborn, but there's no doubt that we'll take any collaboration with Bethesda. Could a Starfield collab be in the stars for later this year? Either way, it puts us one step closer to a mythical Vault Boy skin.
