Fortnite Season X has nearly reached its end but Epic Games isn’t ready, just yet, to let the curtains fall on another successful three months for the battle royale. In fact, the developer still has one trick (that we know of) up its sleeve in the form of yet another crossover event. As with Marvel’s Avengers and the action-thriller John Wick films before it, none other than DC’s Batman is scheduled to be immortalized in gaming’s most lucrative franchise very soon.
Earlier this week, data miners unearthed the first scraps of evidence pointing to the Dark Knight’s upcoming visit to Battle Island in the form of some recognizable gadgets. Check them out below:
Following on from that rather telling leak, Epic confirmed its authenticity today via a new teaser, with a full reveal pencilled in for tomorrow, September 21st. That just so happens to be the same date that Batman fans will celebrate the Caped Crusader’s 80th anniversary, too, so many are expecting something quite special. How does bringing Gotham City itself to Fortnite sound?
As it turns out, that’s exactly what the studio is cooking up behind closed doors. What’s more, new data-mined info points to the addition of several limited-time challenges for players to complete in Batman’s stomping ground, which will be introduced via one of the game’s many Rift Zones.
The full list and their rewards are as follows:
Welcome to Gotham challenges
- Light a Bat Signal, use a Batman Grapnel Gun and deal any damage with an Explosive Batarang (x) – 10 Battle Stars
