Recently DC revealed a new Harley Quinn skin and a DC x Fortnite comic Miniseries. Find out all about the release date, Armored Batman Zero Outfit, How to get the new Harley Quinn Skin, and much more.
Previously we had a Fortnite x DC collaboration where we got multiple DC skins. Batman and Cat-woman were part of a bundle back in Chapter 1. Then we also got the Harley Quinn skin with two edit styles. After that in Chapter 2 Season 3, we got the Aquaman skin as part of the battle pass. Recently we got the Batman and Poison Ivy skin in an item shop bundle. So it’s safe to say Fortnite already had a lot of collaborations with DC in the past.
Seems like the Fortnite x DC collaboration is going to happen once again as DC comics recently announced a comic miniseries featuring some Fortnite characters.
Fortnite x DC Comic Miniseries:
The official Batman Twitter account announced the news of the collaboration recently. In the tweet it reads,
“Can the World’s Greatest Detective uncover the secrets of @FortniteGame? Enter the rift in BATMAN/FORTNITE: ZERO POINT #1, out April 20″
According to the narration in the blog post, Batman will be thrown into the world of Fortnite through the Zero Point Rift. The description states,
“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!”
During his journey, Batman will come face to face with Fortnite characters like Renegade Raider, Fishstick, Bandolier, and more. Apparently Batman will help us uncover the truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious Zero Point.
Some of the new things that we might learn from the comic series about Fortnite island have never been revealed anywhere before.
Printed copies of the comics will be published in the native languages of the following territories: Germany, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and the Czech Republic.
According to the official blog post, the first comic miniseries will arrive in comic stores and digital platforms on April 20, 2021. Below is the full date of the other subsequent releases of the comic issues.
“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 of the Fortnite x DC miniseries comic will be about $4.99 and will include the comic along with a Fortnite skin code. According to the official pricing,
“Each issue sells for $4.99, with the card stock variant cover versions available for $5.99.”
New Harley Quinn Skin:
With the release of the comic book, we will also have some free redeemable skins in Fortnite. These skins will be inspired by the events in the comic. With each purchase of a comic book issue, players will get a redeemable skin code that will unlock certain DC skins in Fortnite.
The first skin that will be available on April 20 is the new Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit. This skin is not an edit style for the Harley Quinn skin that we got previously in the item shop but a different skin. And it can only be unlocked by purchasing the DC miniseries comic issue 1.
This is the first of 6 DC themes skins coming to Fortnite. New issues of the Fortnite x DC comic miniseries will reveal other skins when they release in two-month intervals.
Armored Batman Zero Outfit:
Fans who unlock all six DC outfits will be eligible for the Armored Batman Zero Outfit for free in Fortnite. The official blog post reads,
“Fans who redeem all six codes will also unlock a new Armored Batman Zero Outfit for their Fortnite character.”
The Armored Batman Zero Outfit will possibly look like the armor suit Batman wore in the Batman VS Superman movie with slight alterations.
