Fortnite: Rick And Morty and Superman teased for alien inspired Season 7

Signs point to Fortnite Season 7 having a heavy alien theme, as Epic Games seem to be teasing appearances from Rick And Morty and Superman.

After its wildlife-inspired Season 6, Fortnite Season 7 looks to be switching to a sci-fi theme, with Epic Games teasing the addition of aliens and flying saucers.

Players have already been sharing clips of themselves being temporarily abducted by UFOs and recent posts on the game’s Twitter account appear to be depicting aliens investigating items they’ve beamed up.

But with a new season comes new crossovers and fans may have already deduced what some of them are from teasers, with the first one being Rick And Morty.

The teasers on Twitter show several items floating as they’re being examined. The latest one of these includes a robot that looks identical to one seen in an episode of Rick And Morty, which Rick designed solely to pass butter. It’s even carrying butter in the teaser.

It’s probably safe to assume that this means Season 7 will include Rick as a skin. It could include Morty as well, but it would have to stretch him out and make him taller to fit on Fortnite’s character models, which would just be weird (although not out of place in a Rick And Morty episode).

The second crossover character is believed to be the Man of Steel himself, Superman. Another of the teasers is an analysis of a simple pair of square glasses, which can certainly bring to mind Superman’s human alter ego Clark Kent.

What’s more, the teaser reads ‘When placed onto the face this strange plastic device seemed to make us appear as unrecognisable.’ This could be referencing how simply wearing the glasses hides Superman’s identity, a concept that has been much discussed, parodied, and defended in his 80+ years of comic, TV, and movie appearances.

Superman’s inclusion in Fortnite is a long time coming. Epic and DC already have a strong working relationship, with multiple DC heroes and villains like Batman and, most recently, Deathstroke included as skins. So it’d be weird if Superman weren’t added at some point.

There have also been hints that suggest a crossover with Star Trek. The Fortnite Twitter shared an audio teaser that, at first, sounds like random beeping. But putting the audio through a spectrogram apparently translates it to ‘Universal translation malfunction. Fallback audio-delta encoding with 1-high, 0-low.’

A universal translator is used in the Star Trek series to translate alien languages into English, although this isn’t a concept unique to Star Trek and has been used in various other sci-fi media.

Still, if it were to happen, it would mean Fortnite would finally provide that Star Wars/Star Trek crossover fans have wanted for years.

Fortnite is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
