Fortnite Batman Event COUNTDOWN: Start Time, Skins, Leaks, Gotham Map news

The Fortnite x Batman event crossover leaked earlier this week following the release of the games 10.31 Fortnite update and patch notes.

However, the Batman leaks didn't really go anywhere and ever since the developers at Epic Games have kept fans on tenterhooks. Well, aside from the Fortnite x Batman Challenges that did go live, titled .

Well, it looks like The Dark Knight is getting ready to take on the Battle Royal genre, as Epic Games has announced, via the Fortnite Twitter account, an event thats coming tomorrow.

The Tweet itself was straight to the point and reads:

"#FortniteXBatman Reveal, September 21, 8AM ET" followed by a link to the games official YouTube channel.

Also, it’s apparently Batman Day. Did you know that Batman Day was a thing? We sure as hell didn’t. Although, it seems logical, we suppose, given the sheer amount of films, TV shows, animations, comics and graphics novels that fans of the Dark Knight would set aside a day in the year to appreciate their cloaked crusader.

That said, if someone would be so kind to nudge Warner Brothers and get them to re-release Gotham City Impostors, that would be just, swell.

For the time being, read on, we've got all the details you need to know, or want to know, about this new Fortnite x Batman reveal.

When is the Fortnite x Batman Reveal?

As mentioned above, Epic Games will reveal everything at 8AM ET September 21st.

For anyone who's completely forgotten the date and how to convert timezones, that's tomorrow, Saturday, at 1pm BST in the afternoon.

Are Fortnite Batman Skins Coming?

It certainly seems possible. After all, we recently saw Epic Games add a Borderlands skin to the game as part of the Borderlands crossover.

Equally, there's a number of skins in the games latest files from the 10.31 update. However, these files are encrypted meaning our trusty leakers can't get a proper look at them.

It's believed the skins will contain male and female Bat Suits, as well as (potentially) a Joker skin.

Will Tilted Town turn into Gotham?

It seems that way, a rift beacon has been placed in Tilted Town and as fans of the game will no doubt know, a rift beacon is normally followed by a big change to the map.

There's also been plenty of leaks from dataminers and the games new map does indicate a change to the POI.

So it seems as though some sort of Gotham theme is going to take over the town. And with the Rift Beacon activated, players have also spotted that noticed that Batman’s Batarang has appeared sticking out of a bundle of hey next to the Beacon.

Popular Fortnite leaker HYPEX has also discovered a Joker themed item in the code. Although, we're not entirely sure what it's purpose will be.

But it looks like a gas canister covered in your typical Joker iconography such as "ha ha's" and a joker playing card.

How to watch the Fortnite x Batman reveal?

It looks like this won't be an in-game event reveal, as Epic are pointing fans towards a YouTube page that premieres in under 21 hours.

If you want to watch, you can do so on this page using the YouTube clip above. Otherwise, click the link and you set a reminder to make sure you tune in.

Also, don't forget that if you connect your Epic Games account with your existing YouTube account, you'll also earn in-game rewards, just for watching.

Plus – Free Batman Games…

It's also worth mentioning that Epic Games currently has a deal on Batman games over on the Epic Store. PC players can pick up the Batman Arkham Collection (including Arkham Asylum, Arkham City and Arkham Knight), and three Batman LEGO games for absolutely free.

Why? It's not entirely clear, but they're free until September 26th.

One possible explanation – which is a complete guess, mind – is that maybe Epic is about to announce some sort of exclusivity alongside a new Batman game.

After all, they recently held a Borderlands event crossover in Fortnite – a game that's exclusive to Epic Store until next year – where fans who pre-ordered were given the 2,000 V-Buck Psycho Bundle for free.

As we say, it's a guess, but not completely beyond the pale of possibility.

For now, stay tuned for more details on Fortnite, Batman and everything else in between.
