'Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point' Plot Summary
According to The Verge, the "Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point" miniseries plot summary will open with a crack that splits the sky above Gotham City, and this rift pulls Batman into a new and uncharted world, with no memory of who he is or where he came from. And soon as he realizes it, the Dark Knight is already in the world of Fortnite.
Batman fights as he recalls his past and escapes an endless loop of chaos and struggle. He will 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 world, the Dark Knight will unravel the shocking truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious world of "Fortnite."
This will not be Batman's first crossover with "Fortnite." The Dark Crusader and Catwoman were added as skins alongside a playable Gotham City area in 2019, and Epic Games has since added skins for Harley Quinn, The Joker, and Poison Ivy as well.
Batman is not the only DC Superhero added to "Fortnite" this year, as Epic Games recently added a Flash Skin modeled after the Arrowverse TV Series. The Battle-Royale game also added Ellen Ripley and the Alien Xenomorph from the "Alien" movie in 1979.
