With more than 80 years of DC Comics’ Batman, there are plenty of avenues that the World’s Greatest Detective has taken that surprised its readers, viewers, and fans since the last 1930s. But what many could not anticipate is that video games would also be influencing the canon for the source material. In issue #1000 for Batman’s Detective Comic, Rocksteady Studios’ Arkham Knight made his debut in the milestone release.

For those that might not recall, the Arkham Knight stands to be the titular antagonist to the Caped Crusader in 2015’s Batman Arkham Knight. While altering the dynamic of Bruce Wayne’s relationship with Jason Todd which was set in stone with 1988’s ‘A Death in the Family’, Jason Todd after giving up his alter-ego Red Hood goes on to extract his revenge as the Arkham Knight.

But now, the last-generation title is not the only one to tap into the canon of Batman. In a new reveal from Epic Games in collaboration with DC Comics, Fortnite is now to be injected into the series as well. Announcing Batman: Zeropoint, the first issue is to release this Tuesday. You can view the cover for the print in the image below:

“A crack splits the sky above Gotham City… a tear in reality itself. This rift pulls the Dark Knight into a bizarre and unfamiliar world, with no memory of who he is or where he came from… DC’s Batman has been drawn into Fortnite,” the overview reveals. “As our hero fights to recall his past and escape an endless loop of chaos and struggle, he’ll come face-to-face with the likes of Renegade Raider, Fishstick, Bandolier, and more.

“While the World’s Greatest Detective strives to make sense of this strange new world, he’ll uncover the shocking truth about the Island, what lies beyond the Loop, and how everything is connected to the mysterious Zero Point. Uncover secrets never before revealed in-game or anywhere else!

“Every fan of Batman, Fortnite, stunning art, and edge-of-your-seat excitement won’t want to miss the Caped Crusader facing off against Fortnite champions on the Island in a desperate attempt to save not only himself but other familiar faces from the DC universe… and perhaps the Multiverse too!”

Each issue will also be accompanied with unique in-game items for Fortnite as well for those that purchase the strip digitally. In that past, Fortnite collaborated with DC Comics with featured skins, cosmetics, and to even debut its next-generation version of the game for the newest Xbox & PlayStation systems.
