Fortnite has made the greatest crossover of all time with the Goat Simulator.
Fortnite continues to be the king of crossovers, this time pairing up with the iconic Goat Simulator video game franchise. The Goat Simulator is exactly as it sounds, you play as a goat who does goat things.
And by goat things, I mean you destroy everything around you and you’re pretty much just a demonic hellspawn that lives for chaos. There is basically nothing more to the game than that, you just destroy and cause mayhem.
Somehow that concept has given the franchise three titles, with the third being the newest one, set to debut in November. That’s where Fortnite comes in. If you pre-order the game, you’ll get a bonus Fortnite X Goat Simulator outfit to wear in the game.
It’s horrifying and unnerving, which I’m pretty sure is the point. The character is listed as an “Gaming Legend” by Fortnite and we tend to agree.
The Goat Simulator announcement trailer for Fortnite is amazing.
The Goat Simulator announcement video shows the titular goat going through a Rocky-esc montage of him doing neck exercises to strengthen his neck in preparation for joining the game. It is outlandish and outrageous but that’s what you expect from the game.
The shots of the Goat doing neck curls while lifting up a tractor on a water tower will stay with me for a long time and I’m not sure if I like that or not. The trailer ends with the animal jacking into the internet and transferring his consciousness to the world of Fortnite where we get this monstrosity.
The design of the animal is unnerving and hilarious at the same time. Its inability to stand upright and the drooping tongue give you this idea that he’s just a cute goat but the way it leans and makes eye contact with you will truly unsettle you.
This is the must-have costume for 2022.
