Epic Games will be hosting a ‘premiere’ ahead of their Fortnite crossover with DC Comics and Batman. However, if you aren’t sure when and where it’ll be happening, don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. 

Fortnite players are no strangers to seeing crossovers pop up on the Battle Royale island. Marvel’s Avengers, Jordan shoes, and Borderlands 3 have already made their mark in-game with skins, limited-time modes, and a rift zone – while Netflix’s Stranger Things had their own skins and in-game references.

There is an added bonus for getting out of bed early, however, and watching the unfold as players who have their Epic account linked to YouTube will receive an exclusive drop. 

What that is, though, remains to be seen. Yet, if your accounts aren’t linked, be sure to head to YouTube, go into your account settings, hit connected accounts and set up the link to Epic Games there.

When does the Fortnite x Batman crossover begin?

Just when the action will kick off in-game is up in the air as players wait for the Titled Town rift zone to morph into Gotham.

There has been plenty of hints, including leaked items, missions, and cosmetics, but Epic still hasn’t announced when you’ll be able to jump into a match and live out your dreams of being the caped crusader. 

It could all very well come once the premiere is over, and the video could simply be a distraction for any downtime that players could be in for.

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.
