The Flash races to Fortnite later this week

And The Flash Cup will give Duos an early chance to nab his outfit!

The Flash will be added to Fortnite later this week, Epic Games has today confirmed.

Fortnite‘s The Flash Set will add the character to a number of other DC Superheroes and Villains already available inside the popular battle royale, and includes the following:

  • 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.

The Flash bundle will be available in-game from 11.00 am AEDT on Sunday, 14 February.

If that’s not soon enough, Duos players can take part in The Flash Cup from 11 February (AEDT). Those Duos teams who play at least 10 matches within a 3-hour window will be in the running to win The Flash Outfit and Speed Force Back Bling if they’re the top-performing team in their region.

Fortnite is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4, PS5, Switch and maybe Android or iOS depending on how you go.
