Fortnite Crosses Over With Batman

Fortnite Battle Royale is once again gearing up for a comic book crossover, this time with DC’s Batman instead of Thanos and the Avengers.

The game has teased a “Fortnite x Batman reveal,” which will be streamed live on YouTube. The announcement is set to premiere in the early morning US hours on Saturday, September 21st. You can watch it live as it happens below.

The word of an official announcement follows a datamined leak from recent Fortnite updates, which revealed the existence of Batman-themed items like the grapnel gun and explosive batarang. That almost certainly means that you’ll be able to collect and use some of Batman’s signature gear, but other changes or skins will probably be coming as well.

Previous superheroic events have let you use the Infinity Gauntlet or don some of the most famous Avengers gear. Other pop culture crossover events in Fortnite have included John Wick, Borderlands, and Stranger Things. Not coincidentally, the reveal date will fall on “Batman Day,” the annual event started by DC Comics to mark the Caped Crusader’s publication anniversary. As it just so happens, you can get a bunch of free Batman games right now on PC through the Epic Games Store.

Between this Fortnite event and the upcoming public release of the Joker movie, it’s a pretty good time to be a Batman fan. For those on American or Canadian shores, you can check the reveal livestream out tomorrow morning.
