Following the surprise, Fortnite update 10.31 this morning dataminers have discovered an absolute wealth of information before Epic Games have had time to release the Fortnite 10.31 patch notes.
A lot of the discoveries heavily hint towards some sort of Batman themed crossover for the game. Which given previous crossovers, it's doesn't seem ridiculous to imagine a Fortnite xBatmanevent of some kind.
This has included, among many things, the addition of a new Explosive Batarang and a Batman Grapnel gun item. The description of both items can be seen below for those curious:
- Batman Grapnel Gun – Pull yourself towards a targer location and then deploy the Bat Cape!
- Explosive Batarang – Batman’s Batarang. Homes in on players and sticks to walls. Explodes if it detects enemies in proximity.
For the time being it's not clear if we'll see a Batman or Joker skin, but given that the update contained over 10 further items which were encrypted files, we suspect we could see something.
In fact, well known Fortnite Dataminer has even tweeted in the last 10 minutes to point out that there is three Batman related skins, 1 female, 2 male contained in the new game files.
On top of this, there's also several hints towards new upcoming skins found by @FNBRHQ . Though these are potentially just teasers ahead of some potential Halloween themed cosmetics in the coming weeks.

Fans can also take a look at the new and updated map, which can be seen below.
Fans have spotted that Tilted Town, which had a western theme to it, will be transformed into something far more modern, and potentially resembling something like Gotham City.
Though it's not as clear on the map, we've included a second image to show the new POI loction with more clairty.
We imagine that the involvement of rift beacons could mean some extra changes to the location when full patch notes are revealed by Epic Games.
Maybe all players will be transformed into Joker characters or something. Whatever it is, it'll be something suitably wacky given the effects of previously rift beacons across the map.
One of the more interesting new features to have leaked doesn't actually have anything to do with Batman.
However, it's a new feature that's sure to go down well with fans across all platforms (including mobile).
According to Fortnite News , therese a new Fortnite Party Hub App available.
The Party Hub is "a new feature that provides a space to link up with your friends as you prepare to drop into Fortnite".
Essentially you're able to see which friends are online, start a party, and voice chat with that party before jumping in game on any platform.
