The Flash’s Skin Sprints Into Epic Games’ Fortnite

Things are going to speed up a bit in the Fortnite Universe. According to a press release, DC’s Scarlet Speedster will join the melee in a few days. Epic Games announced that they are debuting Barry Allen’s outfit as part of The Flash set. In addition to the speedster’s skin, players who buy the whole set will also receive a dual-bolt Pickaxe called the Speed Force Slashers Pickaxe, The Flash’s electrified emblem, and the Quick Bite Emote, a light(speed) snack. Players can also buy all these items individually, but the Flash-themed loading screen comes only or as part of The Flash Bundle.

On top of that, Epic Games has announced a lightning-new Duos tournament called The Flash Cup. Each team will have to play up to 10 matches in a 3-hour window. The best teams in each region will get the chance to unlock The Flash Outfit and the Speed Force Back Bling a few days before they hit the item shop. The only requirement is that players must have an account level at 30 or above and have 2FA enabled on their account. The contest will start on Feb. 10.
