‘Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point’ Sees The Dark Knight Detective Take On The Crazy World Of Fortnite

by Olly MacNamee

Batman has teamed up with the brave and the bold and some of the world’s finest over the years but now he’s crossing over into the world of video games with his next team-up. DC Comics and Epic Games have today announced a six-issue miniseries in which Batman enters the world of Fornite.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Pointwill be written by Christos Gage with concept and story consultation from Chief Creative Officer of Epic, Donald Mustard, and art by Reilly Brown, Christian Duce, Nelson DeCastro, and John Kalisz. With a cover by Mikel Janín.

And with each issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point you’ll get a redeemable code for bonus DC-themed Fortnite digital items, inspired by new comic, starting with the new Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit. If you’re already a DC Universe Infinite subscriber, you’ll receive each issue and game codes as part of your package at no extra cost. Fans who redeem all six codes will also unlock a new Armored Batman Zero Outfit for their Fortnite character.

Furthermore, each print issue will be available in the native languages of the following territories: Germany, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and the Czech Republic.

“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!

As he fights to recall his past and escape an endless loop of chaos and struggle, he’ll come face-to-face with the likes of Renegade Raider, Fishstick, Bandolier, and more. While the world’s greatest detective strives to make sense of this strange new world, he’ll uncover the shocking truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious Zero Point.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point uncovers secrets never before revealed in game or anywhere else! Every fan of Batman, Fortnite, stunning art and edge-of-your-seat excitement won’t want to miss the Caped Crusader facing off against Fortnite champions on the Island, in a desperate attempt to save not only himself, but other familiar faces from the DCU…and perhaps the Multiverse itself!”

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 6th. Each issue sells for $4.99, with the card stock variant cover versions available for $5.99.
