The Flash finally has a skin in Fortnite and he is coming very soon!
From the DC Multiverse, The Flash has joined The Mandalorian, Sarah Connor, and all the other hunters in the latest season of Epic Games' Battle Royale.
Starting on February 13th at 19:00 ET, Barry's new Fortnite skin will be available in the Item Shop alongside The Flash Set.
The Flash Set
Below, Epic Games have given us a fresh look at the new The Flash in Fortnite and what to expect in The Flash Set.
The items included in The Flash Set are:
- The Flash Outfit: Enter the battle as Barry Allen
- The Speed Force Slashers Pickaxe: Lightning strikes twice with this dual-bolt Pickaxe
- The Speed Force Back Bling: Display The Flash's electrified emblem
- The Quick Bite Emote: Grab a light(speed) snack
What is interesting about The Flash joining Fortnite is that his appearance seems to be inspired by the CW's Flash series.
When you compare this to the fact that Aquaman's appearance was based on the DCEU's Aquaman and Justice League films, it makes for an interesting decision.
Flash Cup Starting
Prior to The Flash joining Fortnite's Item Shop, Epic Games are adding a new limited-time Duos cup to the game!
Not only is this a great chance for players to showcase their skills, but Epic Games are also giving the top-performing Duos in each region The Flash Outfit and the Speed Force Back Bling for free.
This competition will begin on February 10th and specific timing for each region can be found in the Compete tab in-game.
