Mistborn will crossover with Fortnite soon!
Fortnite Battle Royale’s ever-expanding list of collaborations will continue with Mistborn, an epic fantasy novel series first established in 2006. After briefly teasing the crossover, many leakers within the Fortnite scene dug into a cryptic tweet from the game’s official Twitter account. Mistborn’s creator, Brandon Sanderson, then confirmed the rumors. Although the exact character is unclear, some evidence supports that a warrior known as Kelsier will represent the series in Fortnite.

The popular Battle Royale title’s Twitter account sent out a tweet that had fans stirring instantly. While some thought the words included referred to the upcoming alien-themed new season, further investigation disproved that theory.
“You’re the only one they call the Survivor; those scars on your arms give you away. You’re a troublemaker,” the tweet reads. The Twitter scene jumped at the opportunity of decrypting the confusing quote. ShiinaBR and TweaBR were the first two to make the Mistborn connection.

Another Fortnite leaker – HYPEX – added himself into the equation and caught wind from another Twitter user known as who reads the Mistborn series.
