Rumors are circulating that Deathstroke is going to be the next DC character to make an appearance on Fortnite as part of a new Batman crossover.
With each passing day, it is looking increasingly more likely that DC character Deathstroke is going to be Fortnite‘s latest addition. Fortnite‘s Season 6 launched last month and has continued the battle royale’s tradition of bringing non-stop action and content to its huge audience of players. While Season 5 captivated fans with some of the largest crossovers in the game’s history, Season 6 has not disappointed either.
This season has witnessed the arrivals of some pretty big names, such as Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft and popular Teen Titans character Rebirth Raven. In a bid to keep injecting new content into their game, Epic Games recently announced a crossover between DC Comics and Fortnite. The partnership, titled Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point, includes six different comic books that give players the chance to dive into the combined worlds. The narrative revolves around Batman, who is thrown into a completely different environment where he must fight his way through new villains to remember who he is and how he landed in the battle royale in the first place.
