The first official in-game teaser confirmed the imminent arrival of a Batman crossover event in Fortnite.

Fortnite has yet another major crossover event coming to their game just before the close of Season X. 

Arguably DC Comics' biggest name, Batman, is coming to the world of Fortnite and he's bringing his gear and the whole city of Gotham with him as Tilted Town is set to transform. 

This will now be the second superhero crossover to come to Fortnite, joining Marvel's The Avengers.

If you head to Tilted Town you'll notice the Rift Beacon is once again active, signifying another change is coming to the already transformed location.

Even if you didn't already know about the numerous leaks surrounding the event, there's one major hint that has already arrived and it's the Batarang that's stuck in the hay bale right next to the beacon.

The crossover comes around the same time Batman Day occurs, which is on September 21. It's the 80th anniversary of the Dark Knight so Fortnite is helping us celebrate the occasion.

Epic Games made the three Rocksteady developed Batman Arkham games along with three Lego Batman games all available for free on their storefront, so make sure you pick those up too.

Step aside, Thanos. Batman is coming to town.

There's no set starting date for the Batman event to begin but we can definitely expect it at least in time for the new update.

Rift Beacons usually signify a change in location is near. Tilted Town will now undergo two major transformations in the same season, something that can't be said for the other locations on the map.

Along with the new location, a few new weapons are arriving and perhaps even a Batman skin. It'll remain to be seen if that really happens.

Look for event more hints to show up in the coming days as the event draws closer.
