The crossovers are still coming to Epic Games’ Fortnite, now confirmed to have Batman, the Caped Crusader, joining the Battle Royale mode. With the teasing of a Fortnite x Batman reveal, there is now a YouTube stream that is set to premiere this Saturday, September 21.
This announcement follows after a datamined leak from recent updates for the game. It revealed the existence of certain items that are familiar to Batman, like the grapnel gun and an explosive Batarang. Will this mean that players will be able to get their hands on these gadgets and use them? Most certainly.
The reveal will happen on Batman Day, an annual event that was started by DC Comics to commemorate the hero’s anniversary of publication. Gamers should also head to the Epic Games Store right now, as the celebration has started with a bunch of Batman games being given away for free!
Skins and other changes will also likely accompany the crossover with DC, similar to previous crossovers. Fortnite has teamed up with the Avengers, giving players the opportunities to use the Infinity Gauntlet, wield the weapons of the Avengers, and even joined hands with the likes of John Wick, Borderlands, and Stranger Things.
