Fortnite’s The Last Laugh DLC bundle is now available in stores, bringing two of Gotham City’s most notorious supervillains to Epic’s Battle Royale.
The Fortnite: The Last Laugh bundle is now available, giving players access to two of Batman’s deadliest enemies alongside a multitude of weapons and DLC perks. Epic’s massively successful multiplayer battle royale extravaganza has seen a wave of special guest appearances from the Marvel Universe over the past few months, and it was only a matter of time before DC joined the fortress-busting, skydiving, breakdancing festivities.
The superhero fun began with the likes of Thanos and Deadpool being added as playable character skins in Fortnite, with the Avengers, X-Men, Ghost Rider, and Venom joining them throughout this year’s wave of Fortnite Season 4 DLC. Back in August, it was announced that the Joker and Poison Ivy would be among the comic book icons coming to the game, with a teaser trailer for the pair being leaked on social media a week ago. Now, it seems the wait is over, and both of these classic villains are ready to step into the brightly colored, bullet-riddled world of Fortnite – and they’ve brought a few toys with them.
In a press release earlier today, Warner Bros. Games, Epic Games, and DC Comics announced the release of the Fortnite: The Last Laugh DLC bundle, which will add the infamous Joker and Poison Ivy as playable character skins. Also included in this batch of content is an original character named Midas Rex, as well as three new Back Blings (Laugh Riot, Back Bloom, and Midas Crest), four Pickaxe weapons (Bad Joke, The Joker’s Revenge, Ivy Axe, and Kingmaker), a new flight Contrail dubbed “Pick a Card” and a bonus of 1,000 V-Bucks. Fortnite: The Last Laugh is available across all major platforms as a physical disk costing $29.99, with Epic promising that it will be brought to the in-game store at a later date.
Aside from the recent influx of super-powered visitors, Fortnite has seen plenty of excitement over the past few weeks thanks to Season 4’s weekly Xtravaganza Challenges and October’s Fortnitemares event, the latter of which featured an “Afterlife Party” with performances by J Balvin and SECH. Even President-Elect Joe Biden joined in on the fun last month, with his campaign building a special in-game city to encourage players to vote ahead of the 2020 Presidential Election.
Fortnite is as big as ever, and the recent wave of playable comic book icons has certainly helped. While these guest appearances have mostly consisted of Marvel characters, today’s inclusion of Joker and Poison Ivy will surely open the floodgates for more DC-based skins going forward. There is certainly no shortage of possibilities: Joker and Ivy’s shared love-interest Harley Quinn would be a natural fit for Fortnite’s zany aesthetics, and the arrival of a certain pointy-eared hero of the night seems quite likely. For now though, players will be able to wreak havoc as the Clown Prince Of Crime and the dark queen of nature in the Fortnite: The Last Laugh DLC expansion pack.
