Fortnite is in the midst of Season 5, with the Zero Point leading to what is undoubtedly one of the game’s most exciting seasons ever. From Kratos to the T-800, Epic Games has not pulled any punches regarding this season’s crossover characters. There's plenty of potential for unique events to focus on dream matchups that the game has made possible. However, when designing Season 6, Epic Games should consider looking back to the Marvel crossover that took place in Fortnite just one season ago.
Fortnite’s Marvel crossover featured surprise additions from every corner of Marvel comics, bringing in characters both in and outside of the MCU thus far. The event saw Fortnite's island reworked to feature several iconic Marvel locations, culminating in a battle between Marvel heroes and Galactus. With the event proving to be a massive success for Fortnite, it'd make sense to replicate it somehow. Epic Games already has access to the perfect successor via its DC content, with several skins from Marvel’s competition already in the game. In a format proven to be successful once already, Fortnite’s next season should embrace the other side of superhero comics.
With Fortnite Season 5 set to end on March 15, players are not too far away from a new era of Fortnite. While it seems likely that Season 6 will focus more on the character of Jonesy, and the motivation behind his goal to cause as much chaos as possible, taking a break tell an exciting DC story could be plenty of fun. With a full season of breathing room before more superhero content, players could be ready to see more of their favorite comic book heroes. Plus, the arrival of Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League comes just 3 days after Fortnite's Season 5 ends, making for the perfect time to drop a massive batch of DC content.
Building off the hype for the movie while also benefitting from it, it is hard to think of a better time for Epic Games to hold a DC-focused event. Further, such an event would be easier to make happen than the Marvel event for one key reason: several DC heroes already exist inside Fortnite. With The Flash recently added to the game’s roster, alongside fellow Justice League members Batman and Aquaman, Epic Games would have a head start on making such an event a reality. With smaller heroes like Green Arrow also able to play a part in the event, there are already a fair number of DC heroes available in the game.
Still, there are just as many opportunities for more skins to come. After all, heavy hitters like Wonder Woman and Superman are nowhere to be seen, with fellow Justice League members Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter absent as well. A proper DC event could change this: Making characters like Deathstroke, Constantine, and Doctor fate available, as well as factions like the Teen Titans, the Suicide Squad, and the Bat Family as well, there would be no shortage of memorable skins. With a huge lineup of villains that could accompany The Joker inside Fortnite, the event could be a dream come true for fans of the DC universe.
