DC’s Beast Boy hits Fortnite, teams up with new squeeze Raven

The Teen Titans’ Beast Boy stomps into Fortnite this week, with a premium skin and other bling to complement the game’s “Primal”-themed season 6. He’s the second character from DC’s post-pubescent ensemble to hit the battle royale, joining Raven, whose costume debuted in the game in mid-April.

Starting Thursday, May 13, players can find Beast Boy in the Fortnite Item Shop as a premium outfit, a gorilla emote, a Bonk Bat pickaxe, and Back Bling, which is a sloppy cheese pizza strapped to a phatty gamepad that looks kinda like The Duke.

If you want to unlock that stuff early, there’s a Duos tournament on May 12 celebrating the newfound romance between Beast Boy and Raven — which is the subject of a graphic novel titled Teen Titans: Beast Boy Loves Raven that hits shelves June 15. Players who participate will get a Beast Boy and Raven Spray, and those who score at least eight points will get a loading screen illustrated by Gabriel Picolo, the artist of the graphic novel. Here’s the screen:

The Teen Titans Cup allows players to compete in up to 10 matches during a three-hour window (specific to their time zone). Details can be found under the Compete tab in-game. To participate, players need to be level 30 or above and have two-factor authentication enabled on their Epic Games account.
