Joker and Poison Ivy headline new Fortnite retail bundle

DC’s Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker, is coming to Fortnite, alongside some other themed cosmetics, in a bundle coming out in November.

While Epic Games is currently butting heads with Google and Apple, that doesn’t appear to be hampering development on Fortnite in any way so far.

In fact, over the weekend, the publisher announced a new retail bundle for the battle royale game, which will see two more DC characters enter the fray as skins, namely Batman villains Joker and Poison Ivy.

Labelled as the Last Laugh bundle, it will also come with the Laugh Riot Back Bling, the Bad Joke Pickaxe, The Joker’s Revenge Pickaxe, and the Pick a Card Emote, as well as 1,000 V-Bucks for players to spend.

In addition, it has been confirmed that the Batman and Harley Quinn skins and associated cosmetics are back in the in-game shop to purchase.

Rather than a tie-in to a console game the skins are more likely a reference to the popular Harley Quinn cartoon, where Poison Ivy is a major character.

Although it’s possible she, and Joker, may also be in the new Batman and Suicide Squad games that are due to be announced at this weekend’s DC FanDome event.

Although he’s not a DC character the pack also sees the return of Midas, who was introduced to Fortnite as part of the spy-themed Season 2 and is now boasting a new Midas Rex outfit.

It’s not clear whether this is a hint at any future developments for the game’s story or simply a new cosmetic.

The bundle will be made available physically and digitally for consoles this November for £24.99. Epic has stated that it will explain how PC and mobile owners can purchase the bundle at a later date.

Epic added that it will arrive in time for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with Microsoft already having confirmed their next gen console will be out in November.

Fortnite: The Last Laugh will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on 17 November.
