Batman comes to ‘Fortnite’ along with Catwoman and Gotham City

  • In celebration of the Dark Knight’s 80th birthday.

This event follows several pop culture crossovers with Fortnite, including its Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and John Wick.

UPDATE 2: The first official Fortnite x Batman teaser has gone live in Battle Royale.

A Batarang has been spotted in Tilted Towers, hinting at an imminent start for the Batman crossover event.

UPDATE: The Fortnite x Batman event didn’t go live with the new challenges, which means a September 21 release date looks most likely.

A September 21 start date would coincide with Batman Day, so expect an official announcement soon.

ORIGINAL STORY (September 20, 2019): Epic Games confirmed speculations by announcing a new Fortnite crossover with the Caped Crusader in celebration of Batman‘s 80th anniversary tomorrow. The trailer above will debut on September 21, which has officially been dubbed Batman Day, at 8 a.m. ET.

Although details won’t be explained until tomorrow, data miners already found many Batman-related items added in the game’s latest update, including skins, a Batcape glider, and a few emotes. Epic Games will also be offering six Batman games for free on its online store, including the remastered Arkham AsylumArkham City, and Arkham Knight, as well as three Lego Batman titles.

The Bat-Signal has appeared over the Island. Answer the call in this Caped Crossover from now until October 6 in celebration of Batman’s 80th anniversary!

A Rift Zone has brought Gotham City to Fortnite. Of course, it wouldn’t be Gotham City if villainy didn’t come along with it. This POI lets you be the hero the citizens of Gotham City need by giving you your own Batman cape and the power of Glider Redeploy!
