Fortnite – Beast Boy and the Teen Titan’s CupPublished May 13, 2021
Beast Boy from DC’s Teen Titans is coming to Fortnite this week, and the new Teen Titan’s Cup will be starting soon!
Beast Boy will be available on Thursday, May 13th, in the Fortnite item shop. He will come with both his Beast Boy superhero outfit and Garfield Logan casual clothing, the Beast Bat pickaxe, a game controller on a pizza box as his unique back bling, and his very cool Go Ape emote, which transforms him into a green gorilla.
This is not the first time a character from DC’s Teen Titans has made an appearance on Fortnite. Raven, another character from the popular youth-centered superhero cartoon show, became available not long ago. The two Teen Titans characters are joining a very long list of DC heroes and villains that have come to Fortnite, including Batman, Harley Quinn, Joker, Poison Ivy, Aquaman, Catwoman, Flash, and Green Arrow.
If you aren’t able to wait until Thursday to get this playable character skin, you have the opportunity to unlock Beast Boy early in the Teen Titans Cup, a dou tournament that begins on May 12th. Teams can compete in a maximum of 10 matches within the event’s 3-hour timeframe and accumulate points for both eliminations and placement.
