The next tie-in event for Fortnite will be Rick and Morty, bringing a taste of both the eponymous grandfather and grandson to the battle royale experience in some fashion. There have been teasers for the Season 7 launch on social media for weeks, but now it seems more than clear who's coming to Fortnite, and if you need a way to butter your toast, it's going to be that bit easier once the update launches.

Following shortly after this suuuper cryptic Tweet, a trailer for Season 7 confirmed it. Rick makes an early appearance in the video and after some newly arrived aliens destroy the center of the island, the Invasion storyline kicks off to full effect.
Rick also makes an appearance in this season's battle pass. Page 10 gets you a number of Rick and Morty themed items, including a Rick skin, Rick dance, Morty Hammer, Rick Cruiser Glider, and your very own Butter Robot, among other things.
If it proves popular, which is no doubt will, then there's every chance that we'll see more Rick and Morty crossovers with Fortnite in the future. If so, who would you like to see make an appearance?
