Fortnite is readying itself for another comic book crossover. The game has teased a “Fortnite x Batman reveal.” The announcement also linked to a stream on YouTube, which is set to premiere on September 21 at 8 AM ET / 5 AM PT.
The word of an official announcement follows a leak from recent Fortnite updates, which revealed the existence of Batman-themed items like the grapnel gun and explosive batarang. That almost certainly means that you’ll be able to collect and play with some of Batman’s wonderful toys, but other changes may be coming as well.
Previous superheroic events have let you use the Infinity Gauntlet or don some of the most famous Avengers gear. Other pop culture crossover events in Fortnite have included John Wick, Borderlands, and Stranger Things. Not coincidentally, the reveal date will fall on “Batman Day,” the annual event started by DC Comics to mark the Caped Crusader’s publication anniversary.
