The first challenge of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point makes its debut in the present day, the highly-anticipated comedian crossover occasion between DC’s Dark Knight and the Epic Games phenomenon. As Fortnite‘s largest foray into comics but, followers have been curious to see precisely the way it will strategy the sport’s distinctive Battle Royale universe, which has accrued years of lore and playable characters. While there are huge swaths of Fortnite lore which have largely been unexplored, Zero Point has been heralded as a spot the place followers can start to get some solutions — and it appears like they’re going to be vital ones. ComicEbook.com just lately attended a press occasion with Zero Point‘s inventive group, author Christos Gage and artist Reilly Brown, the place they had been requested about how Fortnite itself will replicate the discoveries made within the comedian.
“I think that that’s probably more of a question for [Epic Games CCO] Donald [Mustard], but I believe that yeah, once the answers are revealed, that’s out there,” Gage revealed. “And I suspect that — I honestly have no idea, but I’m guessing that there will be. Gamers probably saw the recent cinematic between Agent Jones and The Foundation. There may be more like that, references to some of the secrets that Batman and his allies and enemies uncover. But I don’t think it’s gonna be a direct recap. I think that people who want to know the details or the answers should really pick up the book, because it’ll all be in there. As I understand it, once the secrets are revealed, that’s just now part of the Fortnite universe and how it’ll be referenced going further. That’s what I thought was so cool about this, is that it’s not just for fun. It’s not just like, ‘Let’s throw a Batman on Fortnite island and have them fight some Fortnite characters,’ which would have been a lot of fun by itself. But we’re actually revealing some really interesting stuff about how the entire world works.”
“I’ve worked on tie-ins with outside IPs before and usually, it’s a fun sort of thing where, ‘Hey, let’s have these characters fight these characters and do something fun,'” Gage mentioned afterward within the press occasion. “But in this case, from the start, Donald was like, ‘No, this is going to have a lasting impact on Fortnite now.'”
Brown additionally promised that Fortnite‘s authentic characters, whose particular person backstories have largely been as much as followers’ interpretations over time, that the latter problems with the comedian will present some main character moments for some.
“A lot of people are saying from the previews, ‘It looks like the Fortnite characters are just going to be punching bags for Batman.’ The first few issues, they’re playing the game, just like you are, so Batman doesn’t know anything more about who the characters are or their personalities than the average player would. But issues four and five, they definitely get more into the personalities of some. So if you want more backstory on the characters, definitely hold out for issues four and five, because that’s all coming.”
