Where we droppin’, Bats?
DC Comics and Epic Games are teaming up once again for further Fortnite-based shenanigans. The comic-book giant has announced a new miniseries which will see the lawmakers and lawbreakers of Gotham City meet up with some of the battle royale title’s cast of heroes and villains.
Batman/Fortnite: Zeropoint will see a tear in the fabric of space and time appear in the skies above Gotham, thrusting The Dark Knight into Fortnite‘s colorful and chaotic universe. Now struggling to regain his sense of being and identity, Batman will be forced to adapt to his new surrounding, while facing off against some of the strange new world’s Champions – including Renegade Raider, Bandolier, and Fishstick…
…I mean, it’s still better than that time he had to fight through all of American history.
“When DC first approached me about doing a Batman/Fortnite series I thought it would be a lot of fun,” said Zeropoint writer Christos Gage. “After speaking with Donald [Mustard, Epic Games’ CCO] 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.”
As a bonus, Fortnite fans who pick up the first run of physical issues will find codes for special in-game items and skins inspired by the mini-series. The first issue will feature a New Rebirth Harley Quinn gear, and players who purchase all six issues will get access to an exclusive Armored Batman Zero outfit for their character.
Batman/Fortnite: Zeropoint will launch in both physical and digital format on April 20, with following issues to release each fortnight… Naturally.
