Batman swoops into Fortnite in the battle royale game's latest collaboration. The event was leaked earlier than planned but Epic Games has since confirmed the event. 

September 21 marks 80 years since the dark knight first appeared in Detective Comics #27. The Fortnite x Batman event serves as part of the Batman Day celebration and also brings along with it, some of the caped crusader's weapons and skins. 

Similar to Pandora's rift zone in the recent Borderlands collaboration, Gotham City could be replacing Tilted Town. According to data miner Lucas7yoshi, a series of challenges called "Welcome to Gotham City", will also be available to all players. Check them out below:

  • Light up different Bat Signals outside of Gotham City (x3) - 10 Battle Stars

  • Deal any damage to opponents within 30 seconds of using a Batman Grapnel Gun (x1) - 10 Battle Stars

  • Defuse Joker gas canisters found in different named locations (x3) - 10 Battle Stars

  • Light a Bat Signal, use a Batman Grapnel Gun and deal any damage with Explosive Batarang (x1) - 10 Battle Stars

  • Complete any two challenges to unlock the reward - Unknown

  • Complete any four challenges to unlock the reward - Batman logo banner

  • Complete any four challenges to unlock the reward - Batman logo spray

  • Complete all challenges to unlock the reward - Bat-Glider

These challenges can be completed in any mode except Playground, but players will need to use the Batman Grapnel Gun and the Explosive Batarang weapons which are exclusive to the event. Like usual, some of the challenges can be completed just by playing straight while others will need to be hunted down. 

The Fortnite x Batman event, together with skins, Gotham City and the bat signal, will be revealed at 5:00am PT on September 21.
