As regular players of the battle royale game will know by now, during the course of Season 10 Epic Games have incorporated a number of different content from other franchises – including a limited time Pandora rift zone for Borderlands 3, and an IT Chapter Two tease at Pleasant Park. 

However, things are about to change massively at the Tilted Town location, again, with a brand new Rift Zone appearing at the landing spot and construction of a Gotham City replica to replace it, confirmed on September 21.

With a chance to get your hands on a brand new Batman glider, skin banner and spray, let’s take a look at what you’re going to have to do in order to complete these missions.
