Fortnite's Batman crossover offering is officially out, just in time for Batman Day. The spire of New York City's Empire State Building will shine Batman Yellow, and the Bat-Signal will be projected on the west side face of the Domino Sugar Refinery.

For players, the collaboration, dubbed "Fortnite X Batman", means new Batman-themed goodies like skins and weapons, as well as new challenges to complete and rewards to be won.

And if you need some classic Batman viewing in your life, check out Amazon's deal on Batman 80th Anniversary 18-film collection on Blu-ray.

Fortnite's Batman Event Turns Tilted Town Into Gotham City

Tilted Town, one of the areas on the Fortnite map known as a "rift zone", has been transformed into Gotham City.

As the latest patch notes point out, in Gotham City everyone has unlimited glider redeploy for maximum swooping. In the shop, players can buy the Batman Caped Crusader Pack, which includes two costumes, a Bat-Ax, and a Batwing glider.

Will you be booting up Fortnite to fight crime in Gotham City? A Catwoman outfit will be available as well, and there are also heroic challenges available until 1st October.
