The world of Scadrial seems to be becoming a member of the Fortnite metaverse. Scadrial belongs to the Mistborn e-book sequence written by Brandon Sanderson, who teased the collaboration by retweeting the official Fortnite Twitter account. But it’s not clear simply but what is definitely coming to the sport.
If you aren’t into fantasy books, Brandon Sanderson is among the many hottest and prolific authors working within the style for the time being — he’s written in different genres however fantasy is what he’s greatest recognized for. Among followers’ favourite Sanderson books is the Mistborn sequence, which at present has two separate sequels and one shorter transition e-book between. Sanderson’s additionally bought one other extraordinarily common fantasy sequence referred to as The Stormlight Archive, which is able to finally stretch to 10 books however has solely launched 4 up to now.
Based on the Fortnite Twitter account’s first tease of Epic’s collaboration with the creator, it seems that no matter’s coming to the sport is Mistborn-related.
The tweet has a brief message together with a image on the high that within the Mistborn world represents iron, one of many metals utilized in Allomancy, the sequence’ metal-based magic system. In Allomancy, iron permits customers to pull different metals to them — one thing that will truly match proper into Fortnite. Unfortunately, I’m not sufficient of a Mistborn fan (I’ve solely learn The Stormlight Archive, I’m sorry) to have a lot interpretation of the message itself.
Technically, each Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive sequence, together with a lot of Sanderson’s different works, happen inside one bigger universe referred to as the cosmere. It’s nearly like Sanderson’s personal model of Epic’s metaverse, besides the connections are not often made express. With that in thoughts, simply because Sanderson and Epic are teasing Mistborn-related content material now, doesn’t imply different components of the cosmere couldn’t be on the best way later.
Also a thriller is what precisely this crossover would possibly embody. While it’s doable that Epic might add some model of Mistborn’s Allomancy to the sport, there may even seemingly be a few beauty gadgets included as properly. On high of that, we’re solely a couple of weeks away from a new Fortnite season starting, so it’s doable the collaboration might be even greater.
