It appears that one cultural phenomenon can get pumped up by another cultural phenomenon. Fortnite's Mega Mall location is apparently rife with "upside down portals" inspired by the Netflix series, Stranger Things. Stranger Things Season 3 is set to debut tomorrow. Mega Mall is also the home of Scoops Ahoy, an ice cream stand that is also present in Stranger Things and ice cream cones are found here and there that grant players +5 health each.
The upside down portals don't deliver players to the Upside Down, but they do spirit them away to other locations within the mall itself. Portals are found in a number of locations throughout Mega Mall.
The portals have only just started sprouting inside the Mall. It's likely that more Stranger Things tie-ins will appear ahead of tomorrow's series launch. With other recent crossover events (Avengers: Endgame and John Wick), one has to wonder what other types of things players can expect. Skins? A themed world? Emotes? Only time will tell!
