Epic Games looks set to add a brand new Joker inspired item to Fortnite‘s upcoming Gotham City location, to open up the beginning of the game’s latest crossover with the Batman franchise. 

The free-to-play game has been host to several interesting crossovers in recent times, including Marvel’s The Avengers, Stranger Things, Borderlands 3 and many others, but it’s a brand new Batman event that has people talking in Season 10. 

Following the introduction of the game’s v10.31 patch on September 18, data miners discovered that one of its most popular locations, Tilted Town, was about to undergo even more changes. In fact, they revealed that it would be replaced by Gotham City.

Fortnite Joker Jam item coming soon? 

With many fans wondering whether or not this was a crossover linked with Batman Day on September 21, or even an event to promote the new Joker movie which releases on October 4, it appears that they will be getting both. 

Fortnite leaker HYPEX uncovered some interesting details after the patch went live, but one of the most mysterious – and interesting – is definitely this Joker inspired item. You can check it out below. 

There’s no much information about it so far, but here’s the unusual Joker item.

According to HYPEX this item, which has been described as a “jam” by the data miner, will be able to be placed on different structures in Fortnite – such as walls. 

There’s no hiding that currently we don’t have a lot of information about what this will actually do in-game. After all, many people thought that the leaked Fortnite Batarang was going to be an item, but turned out to be a teaser added to Tilted Town after the arrival of a brand new Rift Beacon.

For all we know, this new Joker item could just be another prop to tease the event before it kicks off, but the likelihood is that it will be an actual item in the game. 

We await more information on its capabilities, but it’s worth noting that its presence has not yet been confirmed by Epic Games, meaning there’s a chance that it could be tweaked, or even scrapped, at any time in the future.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
