Warner Bros. Entertainment has several projects coming to “Fortnite” over the next few months. The company announced a partnership with Epic Games to release the “Fortnite: Darkfire Bundle” on November 5th, and Batman themes are coming to the game as well.
According to Warner Bros., the retail version of the “Fortnite: Darkfire Bundle” will cost $29 but the pack will offer up to $80 of in-game content. The new bundle will include 13 new items: three Legendary Outfits, three Legendary Back Blings, three Rare Dual-Wielding Pickaxes, three Epic Wraps, and a new Emote. Players will be able to pick up the new bundle for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and the Xbox One.
The Batman content will coincide with Batman Day, which is celebrating Batman’s 80th anniversary later this week. Epic Games hasn’t shared all of the secrets of the Batman content, but it should be safe to assume that some Bat-themed gliders, skins, and emotes are coming to the game. It would be amazing if we saw maps from the Batman universe appear in the game, but we won’t hold our breath. Epic Games is dropping the details on the Batman content on 8AM ET on Saturday with a livestream. The announcement was made on social media, where Epic Games released the following video so fans can set reminders to catch the details.
This isn’t the first time that a major brand has entered into the “Fortnite” universe. The game has hosted content from “John Wick,” the “NFL,” and “Stranger Things,” and even “Marvel’s The Avengers” released a tie-in when the movies were ready to hit theaters.
If you are a Batman fan, you should check out the Epic Games Store, where you can download several games for free. There are six free games to choose from, and they include the remastered versions of “Arkham Asylum,” “Arkham City,” and “Arkham Knight,” and you will also find three LEGO Batman options to play.
