Appearing inside the video game’s Mega Mall on Wednesday morning (July 3), the inclusion of the portals came with no official word of a crossover. It was confirmed later by Fortnite on Twitter.

In the show, the portals lead to the ‘Upside Down’: an alternative dimension occupied by monsters. In Fortnite, the similar looking portals send players to another part of the mall. If you enter one portal, you’ll exit at the connected portal.
This isn’t the first time the worlds of Fortnite and Stranger Things have merged. Last month, the ‘Scoops Ahoy’ ice cream parlour from the Hawkins mall, as seen in the first trailer for Stranger Things season 3, was added to Fortnite’s Mega Mall.
