Batman is called 'the world's greatest detective,' and he will prove that once again - inside the world of Fortnite.

June 1's Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #4 will find the Dark Knight breaking free from Fortnite's Loop, and according to DC "discover secrets about the world of Fortnite never before revealed in the game or anywhere else."

And oh yeah, Epic and DC have confirmed this crossover is in-continuity with both franchises. Welcome to the DC Omniverse.

"Just one thing…[Batman's] not alone. Not only is he met by a rogue faction of Fortnite bandits who have ALSO escaped the loop–Eternal Voyager! Bandolette! Magnus! Fishstick! And a few others– there’s someone else trapped, someone who is trying to get free from the world of Fortnite …someone deadly," reads DC's description of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #4. 

"Will Batman recognize this familiar hunter-for-hire, and even more importantly, will he trust him? Just because Batman’s out of the Loop doesn’t mean the fighting is over!"

That "familiar hunter-for-hire"? Deathstroke.
