Batman Enters The World of Fortnite in A New Comic Miniseries

The Dark Fortnite

The world of Marvel already took over Fornite for an entire season, bringing Marvel characters into the game while Fortnite invaded a few Marvel comic books. Now it's time for DC to get in on the action with a Batman/Fortnite crossover. A six-issue miniseries is heading to comic book shops in April 2021, and you can get the full details below.

The worlds of comic books and video games collide on April 20, 2021 as DC and Epic Games (“Epic”) announced plans today to publish Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point, a six-issue miniseries that combines the Dark Knight and other DC Super Heroes with the global gaming phenomenon.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point arrives in comic book stores and on participating digital platforms Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Subsequent issues will ship twice monthly beginning in May (May 4/May 18) and June (June 1/June 15), with a single issue concluding the series on July 6. Each issue sells for $4.99, with the card stock variant cover versions available for $5.99.

Each print issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will include a redeemable code for bonus DC-themed Fortnite digital items, inspired by the events in the comic, starting with the new Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit. US Subscribers to DC UNIVERSE INFINITE will receive the series for free, including the bonus digital codes. Fans who redeem all six codes will also unlock a new Armored Batman Zero Outfit for their Fortnite character.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will also launch in print day and date (including the item codes), published in the native languages of the following territories: Germany, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and the Czech Republic.

Written by Christos Gage with concept and story consultation from Chief Creative Officer of Epic, Donald Mustard, this miniseries features art by Reilly Brown, Christian Duce, Nelson DeCastro, and John Kalisz. The main cover for issue #1 main cover is provided by Mikel Janín (Batman, Wonder Woman, Future State: Superman – Worlds at War) and the variant cover by Kenneth Rocafort (Sideways). Mustard will also provide premium variant covers for each issue of the series (check local comic shops for availability), and future variant covers will be provided by an impressive lineup of artistic talent, including Arthur Adams, Jim Lee, Amanda Conner, and others.

“When DC first approached me about doing a Batman/Fortnite series I thought it would be a lot of fun,” said series writer Christos Gage. ”After speaking with Donald and discovering just how deeply we'd be diving into the secrets behind the world of Fortnite, I was amazed! This series will reveal things about Fortnite that have never been seen or heard before yet are very much part of the canon of the game.”

“I’m also looking forward to integrating other DC Super Heroes into the series, characters that Batman has existing relations with,” Gage continued. “It’ll be exciting to share with fans how these relationships will be reshaped in this new world. The art by Reilly, Christian, Nelson, and John is stunning, and my prediction is that this series will blow everybody’s mind, whether you’re a fan of DC, Batman or Fortnite.”

A crack splits the sky above Gotham City... a tear in reality itself. This rift pulls the Dark Knight into a bizarre and unfamiliar world, with no memory of who he is or where he came from...Batman has been drawn into Fortnite!

As he fights to recall his past and escape an endless loop of chaos and struggle, he’ll come face-to-face with the likes of Renegade Raider, Fishstick, Bandolier, and more. While the world's greatest detective strives to make sense of this strange new world, he’ll uncover the shocking truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious Zero Point.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point uncovers secrets never before revealed in game or anywhere else! Every fan of Batman, Fortnite, stunning art and edge-of-your-seat excitement won't want to miss the Caped Crusader facing off against Fortnite champions on the Island, in a desperate attempt to save not only himself, but other familiar faces from the DCU…and perhaps the Multiverse itself!

"When developing this project with DC, our mutual goal from day one has been to tell an awesome and authentic Batman story first and foremost," said Donald Mustard, Chief Creative Officer for Epic Games. "Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point explores what would happen if you trapped the World’s Greatest Detective somewhere with no memory of who he is, in an environment that's constantly changing. I can’t wait for readers to discover all the surprises, twists, and mysteries that we have in store for them!"

Hasbro and Epic expand their Fortnite partnership for another 5 years

Get ready for a slew of new merch

Hasbro and Epic already have a long history of working together through Fortnite, and it appears that deal has been quite lucrative. Both parties announced today that they'll be expanding their partnership for another five years, meaning fans can expect Hasbro-branded figures, vehicles, toys, and more. While specific products weren't revealed, we do know that we'll see the first round of new merch sometime in Fall of 2021.

Xenomorph and Ripley skins confirmed for Fortnite

The best of friends

Yesterday we shared a tease for Aliens content in Fortnite, and today we have the confirmation. As you can see above, both a Xenomorph and Ripley skin are now available in Fortnite. You can get the full details on their arrival below.

In space, no one can hear you scream. On the Island, everyone can you see you Emote.

Agent Jonesy’s search to find the best Hunters took a dark and stormy stop to LV-426. Now there’s good news… and bad news.

Bad news first? Surprising no one, a Xenomorph was able to sneak back with Jonesy. It has been described as the perfect organism. Its structural perfection matched only by its hostility. This menacing adversary comes equipped with both the Xenomorph Tail Back Bling and Xeno Menace built-in Emote.

Good news: Jonesy’s trip has delivered one of the greatest action heroes… Ripley. If she can stand her ground against the deadly Xenomorphs, she can take on anything on the Island. In addition to having her Nostromo Crew Outfit variant, you’ll warrant attention with the Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier (complete with Jonesy the Cat).

Before it’s game over, man, you can also get the Space Gear Bundle. This themed Bundle includes the P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe, the Cheyenne Dropship Glider, and a new Emote that’s bursting on the scene.

Aliens crossover teased for Fortnite

Game over, man!

Fortnite is filled to the brim with cameos from other big-name franchises, and there's still plenty more to come. The latest tease from Epic can be seen above, and it's very clearly a tease for the Aliens franchise. It's not clear whether players will get to grab skins for Ellen Ripley or a Xenomorph yet, but whatever's in the works will likely be released sometime in the very near future. We'll bring you full details when they become available.

Fortnite Crew's March 2021 content revealed

Llamarama!

Epic has revealed the next round of content exclusive to Fortnite Crew members, and it's something longtime Fortnite players will certainly appreciate. The Llambro is making his way back to the game as a Crew Pack goodie, along with some other content. Check out full details on the package below.

Puffed up and prismatic, a stylish new figure makes their Fortnite Crew appearance.

Headlining the March 2021 Crew Pack is the horned llama Llambro, llegendary in both being and attire. Going live for active Fortnite Crew members at approximately 7 PM ET on February 28, the March Crew Pack includes the Llambro Outfit, the sporty but elegant Up North Back Bling, the inflatably-tailored Puffcorn Pick Pickaxe, and the abundant in color The Llegend Wrap.

MORE FORTNITE CREW BENEFITS: SEASON 6 BATTLE PASS, MONTHLY V-BUCKS, AND THE FEBRUARY CREW PACK!
The Crew Pack is only one benefit for Fortnite Crew members. Subscribers always have instant access to the current Season’s Battle Pass, which means active subscribers during the launch of the Chapter 2 Season 6 will automatically get that Season’s Battle Pass! (At no additional cost.) Also, active subscribers receive 1,000 V-Bucks every month on the day of their billing date*.

Llambro may be the star of March’s Crew Pack, but players also interested in the Fox Clan warrior Vi, star of the February Crew Pack, need not worry. Players who subscribe to Fortnite Crew before February 28 at 7 PM ET (when active members begin to receive March’s Crew Pack) will automatically receive the February Crew Pack.

Remember: Crew Pack items stay yours forever!

Legendary Fighters Ryu and Chun-Li Arrive Through the Fortnite Zero Point

You win!

Once again, the dataminers were spot-on. Street Fighter II content is coming to Fortnite, as revealed in the trailer above. Both Ryu and Chun-Li are hopping into the Zero Point to visit Battle Royale island, and they'll be showing up tomorrow evening.

Street Fighter content teased for Fortnite

Ryu's ready to get sweaty

Those who've been playing Fortnite recently have no doubt seen the portals that are popping up around the map. Those portals gave us a tip on Tron content being added to the game, and now they're showing a completely different tease.

As you can see in the video above, the portals are now showing off a tease of Ryu's arena from Street Fighter. That seems like a pretty solid tease for a Ryu skin in the game, but it's likely there will be a few other Street Fighter skins added as well. Expect an official announcement of Street Fighter content from Epic very soon.

Fortnite's Party Royale to host Short Nite Film Festival

Grab some popcorn!

Fortnite isn't all about shooting other players and getting a victory royale. There's plenty of other things to do in the game, like watching some films! Epic has announce a special Short Nite Film Festival, and you can get full details on it below.

A film festival is coming to Fortnite!

Starting February 20, 2021, at 2 PM ET, join players worldwide for the Fortnite Presents Short Nite Film Festival. Running until February 21, 2021, at 2 PM ET, Short Nite brings acclaimed animated film shorts to Party Royale’s Big Screen. Grab some popcorn (in real life or in-game), jump in with yourself or some friends, and enjoy a series of short-form cinema.

A SHORT SUMMARY

The animated shorts featured in Short Nite come from around the world. (Among them are shorts that were previously nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film!)

The total runtime of the Short Nite series is about 30 minutes, and the series will repeat non-stop for 24 hours. (No movie tickets required; jump in whenever you’d like!) If you’re new to Party Royale, check out our guide for getting to the Big Screen. Players will also have the option to watch Short Nite in standard Battle Royale via Picture-in-Picture, available at the start of Short Nite and every two hours afterwards.

REFRESHMENTS AVAILABLE... JUMBO POPCORN!

Sit back, relax, and chomp on some JUMBO popcorn while you watch the festival. Starting the day before Short Nite — February 19, 2021, at 7 PM ET — the new Jumbo Popcorn Emote will be available in the Item Shop. The bucket's so big you’re going to have to take a seat.

SUBTITLES AND CONTENT CREATION

For the shorts that contain dialogue, you’ll be able to watch them with subtitles in your preferred language. If you want to watch with subtitles, be sure to enable subtitles in the Audio Settings.

And as a heads-up for Content Creators, just like with any theater, there’s no recording of these films during Short Nite. Instead, invite your fans there live! Any streams or VODs of these films (whether from Party Royale or via Picture-in-Picture) will go dark per content protection rules.
