'Fortnite' adds Halo's Master Chief and a playable Blood Gulch


Following the insane reveal that Master Chief is now a Fortnite skin, which continues to show that Epic are open to so many opportunities for crossover, you can now also take a step back in your childhood and play on the Blood Gulch map within Fortnite.

Master Chief was actually discovered as part of a datamine that also leaked Kratos from Sony's God of Warjoining the battle royale. Chief arrives together with a full set, together with a Pelican Glider, a miniature Pelican Provider, and a Gravity Hammer. More details will be shared closer to their release.

The Chief isn't the only new hunter dropping into Fortnite, however, with The Walking Dead's Daryl and Michonne also coming to the game next week.

Epic Games revealed the trailer during The Game Awards alongside details on the character's kit for Fortnite.
