A Bloodsport skin bundle is going to be available in the Fortnite Item Shop from 17:00 PST / 20:00 EST on August 3rd and 01:00 BST on August 4th. There's no word on how long it will be available, but we assume it is a limited-time listing.
As you can see, it looks like the release of the Bloodsport skin bundle is going to include a Harvesting Tool and Back Bling. He may also come with his own Emote, but there is no sign of a Glider or Umbrella yet...
It also looks like there's going to be a variant appearance for Harley Quinn dropping... This could arrive alongside an in-game challenge and a re-release of her existing Fortnite skin.
Bloodsport joins Suicide Squad alumni Harley Quinn, the Justice League's Batman and Superman, and the Teen Titan's Raven and Beast Boy. All in all, there's a lot of DC-related characters in Fortnite nowadays; Especially when you consider the fact that DC hasn't had a themed season yet (we're looking at you, Marvel!)
We're just left with one question after all this... King Shark skin bundle when?
