Fortnite has revealed a Joker skin and the return of Midas, coming in ‘The Last Laugh’ bundle. The bundle is set for release in November, though, so fans still have some time to wait.

Fortnite is well-known for its incredible crossovers, which bring pop culture’s biggest characters into the building battle royale. We’ve seen Star Wars and Marvel characters coming to Epic’s title, and we’re going back to the DC Universe in November.

We’ve already seen Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn come to Fortnite, as well as the Caped Crusader bundle focusing on Batman.

On August 15, ‘The Last Laugh’ bundle was revealed, featuring three new skins and a host of other content.

A quick glance at the included skins explains where its name comes from, with a Joker skin on offer. While Joaquin Phoenix’s reincarnation of the Joker has received widespread attention, this interpretation of the Crown Prince of Crime appears to me more akin to how he appears in the comic books.

Three skins plus 1000 V-Bucks, and more, will be available in the bundle.

Alongside the Joker is a Poison Ivy skin, another character who appears in DC comic books as an enemy of Batman.

What’s also notable from the leaked artwork is the apparent return of Midas, who was eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer. It seems he has recovered from this though, appearing in the artwork in a mechanized suit of sorts.

The bundle has been confirmed to include:

  • 1000 VBucks
  • Outfits: The Joker, Poison Ivy, Midas Rex
  • Backblings: Laugh Riot, Back Bloom, Midas Crest
  • Pickaxes: Bad Joke, The Joker’s Revenge, Ivy Axe, Kingmaker
  • Contrail: Pick a Card

The Last Laugh Bundle release date and price

It is set to release on November 17, and will cost players $30. While slightly more expensive than some other skins, these are some of the best additions Fortnite has had in some time.

It will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch, and also the next-gen consoles, PS5 and Series X, when they launch.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
