Fortnite x Elder Scrolls: Release date, skins, & more
A brand-new crossover between Fortnite and the Elder Scrolls franchise is fast approaching. While it doesn't appear to be the most content-packed collaboration ever seen in Fortnite, it'll at least present a few cosmetics that'll put you in the Elder Scrolls spirit. This primer details everything we know about the Fortnite x Elder Scrolls crossover.
Fortnite x Elder Scrolls: Release date
Starting July 20, 2023, and lasting until July 27, 2023, Elder Scrolls Online will be free to grab from the Epic Games Store. And to bring attention to this special offer, Elder Scrolls is crossing over into Fortnite.

Fortnite x Elder Scrolls: All skins and accessory cosmetics
So far, we know of only three Fortnite x Elder Scrolls cosmetics. The items are all inspired by the Nords from the Elder Scrolls series and consist of a Nord Outfit, the Nord's Axe Pickaxe, and the Warrior Wrap.
How to get the Fortnite x Elder Scrolls cosmetics
Rumour has it that anyone that purchases Elder Scrolls Online on the Epic Games Store will receive the Fortnite x Elder Scrolls cosmetics for free as a bonus. This wouldn't be the first opportunity like this in Fortnite. Last year, Fortnite players could get a free Glider and Back Bling for purchasing Among Us and Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, respectively, in the Epic Games Launcher.
If you have no interest in buying Elder Scrolls Online, the Fortnite x Elder Scrolls cosmetics will likely be available in the Item Shop for V-Bucks too. As part of the Gaming Legends Series, the Nord Skin will probably cost 1,200 to 1,500 V-Bucks while the Nord's Axe Pickaxe goes for 800 V-Bucks and the Warrior Wrap a mere 500 V-Bucks. If you want the entire set, the Item Shop will presumably also feature a bundle containing all the cosmetics for a discounted price of 1,800 to 2,200 V-Bucks.

What about Fortnite x Elder Scrolls POIs, Mythics, Islands, or Quests?
To the dismay of Elder Scrolls fans, this might be the extent of the Fortnite x Elder Scrolls crossover — at least for the time being. While surely no one would complain about the addition of an Elder Scrolls-themed Point of Interest (POI), Elder Scrolls-themed Mythics, or even Elder Scrolls-themed Creative Islands and Quests, there is no sign of any of that.
Epic Games could always surprise us at the last moment, but based on the available information, we wouldn't get your hopes up. For now, the closest thing you can get to experiencing Elder Scrolls in Fortnite is to don the Nord Outfit and lay claim to Brutal Bastion.
