RoboCop is Fortnite's Latest Crossover Character

There was a time when the extent of Fortnite's many crossover characters were often quite shocking, but the battle royale game has become so popular now, that we're not surprised whenever a new franchise is added to the game.

This time around, it's RoboCop who has arrived on the Island, and it's available as a costume in the Fortnite item shop right now. With a design pulled straight out of the 1987 film of the same name (and not the rubbish 2014 reboot), RoboCop also comes equipped with the leg of the infamous ED-209 enforcement droid, which doubles as both a pickaxe and a Back Bling accessory. Oh, and the Lil’ ED-209 emote sees RoboCop riding on a smaller version of the hyper-deadly droid. Ah, just like the film.

Is it weird to see RoboCop, a character born from a film that's extremely violent and utterly anti-capitalist, join a game that's become a billion dollar marketing machine, and is hugely popular with children and teenagers? We'll leave that for you to decide - in the meantime, you can check out RoboCop's short Fortnite trailer down below.
