Fortnite’s The Suicide Squad event kicks off tomorrow

Idris Elda is coming to Fortnite in a crossover with The Suicide Squad, this week in fact. Starro's coming too.

August 2, 2021: Idris Elba’s Bloodsport is coming to Fortnite tomorrow, August 3.

The Suicide Squad is getting a crossover with Fortnite, thanks to a new video featuring Idris Elba telling us about a new Bloodsport skin and items coming tomorrow, August 3. The continued lesson is that we should never be surprised by a Fortnite crossover. And there are hints that there’s more to the collaboration than a single skin, too.

The minute-long video (hey, I assume Idris Elba is a busy guy) shows off just a few seconds of Bloodsport competing in the battle royale game. As Idris adds, Fortnite fans should “prepare to get some dubs.” While I am currently crawling inside my own skin and dying as a result of presenting that quote, I gotta admit the skin looks pretty cool.

The crossover was teased last week by the movie’s director James Gunn himself, and now we have a rough idea of what it includes. Aside from the Bloodsport outfit, there seems to be a number of cool weapon skins and a particularly fun Starro back bling.

Either way, you can check out the new trailer below, which at the very least includes Bloodsport and Harley Quinn taking on Superman – so that made my day at least.
