Fortnite The Last Laugh Bundle Brings Joker and Poison Ivy to Battle Royale
Epic Games has announced the Fortnite The Last Laugh bundle for battle royale players to collect in the future. This new bundle contains many new cosmetic items, including the long-awaited Joker crossover skin that brings the beloved and fan-favorite DC Comics villain to Fortnite.
Fortnite The Last Laugh Bundle Revealed
The Fortnite The Last Laugh bundle was revealed by Epic Games over the weekend on the official blog for the battle royale game. This new bundle includes many cosmetic items that will be more than enticing to a good number of Fortnite players in the world.
This is the latest battle royale crossover with another property in entertainment that Fortnite is having. This time around, Epic Games continues the trend from Season 3 of getting all cozy with DC Comics and hosting one of their fan-favorite characters in Fortnite.
The Fortnite The Last Laugh bundle is a massive bundle and might be the largest single collection of cosmetic items that Epic Games has ever released for the game. You will get not one but a ton of skins with this single purchase and other cosmetic items to show off in combat.
Bundle Release Date Is Quite Far Away
But, while the Fortnite The Last Laugh bundle is amazing overall with its introduction of the Joker himself, one feature is a little unfortunate: the release date. Usually, Epic Games will announce an event, crossover, or new cosmetic items and have them released soon.
That has been the typical procedure for years now in Fortnite. For some odd reason, Epic Games has announced this bundle way in advance. And when we say “way in advance,” we mean it. This collection literally will not come to Fortnite until months from now.
The current release date for The Last Laugh collection is Nov. 17. That is extremely far away from now. Players have to wait three months to enjoy the fantastic items in this collection.
This wait may be due to whatever will happen in Season 4. The last two seasons of battle royale have had a popular crossover superhero. This season, it is Aquaman. But before, it was a crossover with Marvel where we got Deadpool.
This bundle tells us that one of two things could be happening in Season 4. Either there is no crossover character in the battle pass of Season 4, so this will take the place of that, or the super character will be a Marvel one. This is how DC Comics is crossing over with Fortnite next season.
Everything You Get Inside
Regardless of what the situation is, the wait will be more than worth it. The Fortnite The Last Laugh bundle comes with an impressive number of items, beginning with the skins’ most important ones. There are three skins in total that players will get in The Last Laugh.
The first skin is the obvious one that the whole collection is based: Joker. Batman’s infamous arch-nemesis is coming soon and will be available in a classic comic book-style look for him. But he isn’t the only DC Comics character that will appear in the bundle.
The other one is another famous DC villain Poison Ivy with a more Fortnite-like cartoony take on a standard comics look for her. And then there is one more skin that players will get in this collection, but this one isn’t necessary from DC Comics (or at least officially).
The main villain/character of Season 2, Midas, will return in a brand new skin for him known as Midas Rex. It seems that the man with the golden touch got into a tricky spot and has become a cyborg. It does seem like this skin is a take on DC Comic’ Cyborg but with Midas, instead.
Those three items are amazing on their own, but there are more in the collection. You will also get the Joker-themed Laugh Riot back bling, Bad Joke pickaxe, The Joker’s Revenge pickaxe, 1000 V-Bucks, and the Pick a Card emote items. Those are the only items we know about right now. So, it is unknown if there are other Poison Ivy-themed cosmetics or not.
How to Purchase the Bundle
At this time, the official price for The Last Laugh bundle has yet to be announced. This is fine since the collection doesn’t release until three months from now. But what we do know is that this bundle will be sold in a couple of different ways.
You will be able to get it physically in stores or digitally through PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Details regarding the mobile and PC versions of this bundle are unknown. Epic stated that it would share more in the future.
Epic also noted that this bundle would arrive “in time for the release of” the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Given that the date is Nov. 17, is it possible that that date or soon after is when the new consoles arrive?
The wording certainly seems like this is the case. Is this also the reason why the release date is so far away from the announcement? It is possible that this is held for the next generation of consoles to give players with the new systems an incentive to check out an older gen game like Fortnite on them then.
