Teen Titans’ Beast Boy Joins Fortnite Later This Week

Beast Boy from DC’s Teen Titans is coming to Fortnite later this week. He’ll be able to join his comic teammate Raven, and there will even be a chance to earn some specific Beast Boy and Raven rewards when the animal shapeshifter lands on the island.Beast Boy will be available on Thursday, May 13 at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET on the Fortnite item shop. He’ll come with the requisite back bling (a controller strapped to a pizza box), and custom pickaxe. Furthermore, Beast Boy will come with both his superhero outfit and a casual outfit, plus his Go Ape Emote will let him transform into a green gorilla.

For anyone who can’t wait until Thursday, Fortnite players will have the opportunity to unlock Beast Boy early in the Teen Titans Cup, a duo tournament beginning on May 12.

Teams that score at least eight points can also earn a new Beast Boy and Raven Loading Screen from artist Gabriel Piccolo that highlights the couple’s romance. Anyone who just participates in the tournament will earn a Beast Boy and Raven spray.

It’s great to see Fortnite play up the recent canonization of the Beast Boy and Raven romance, a longtime favorite pairing in the fan community finally made official by DC.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 is currently underway and some of pop culture’s biggest characters are joining up on the island including Kratos, Master Chief, and more. There are also a few members of the Teen Titans still unaccounted for, so perhaps there’s a chance we’ll see the whole team together in Fortnite?
