Fortnite has become well-known for its exciting mainstream crossovers, and next up is Marvel’s Eddie Brock and Venom, the symbiotic anti-hero from the upcoming Let There Be Carnage movie.
Fortnite’s Season 8 shook things up again, reintroducing Punchcard Quests and allowing players to vote on items and weapons they want to be unvaulted. The new season’s Battle Pass also included Carnage, who is set to play the villain in Venom’s upcoming movie which releases on October 1.
While there’s already a version of Venom in the game, players can now get their hands on the symbiote’s host Eddie Brock, complete with special emotes and cosmetics. Here’s how you can add it to your inventory.
Fortnite Eddie Brock skin
Inspired by Venom: Let There Be Carnage, the new Eddie Brock skin not only lets you play as Tom Hardy’s character from the movie but actually transform into Venom during matches using the special Venom Unleashed emote.
Once you’re finished tormenting enemies as Venom, you can use the emote to transition back to Brock, or you can equip the Venom skin in your Fortnite inventory to use the Spider-Man character permanently.

On top of this, players will also get the Symbiote Scythe pickaxe, along with the Different Tasty Snack Emoticon as part of the bundle. The Symbiote Trail Contrail and Sail Glider are also available to purchase from the Item Shop.
Fortnite Eddie Brock skin price
The Fortnite Eddie Brock bundle will set players back 2,000 V-Bucks, but there’s good news if you already own the original Venom skin released in November 2020, as you’ll only have to pay 800 V-Bucks to get your hands on Eddie Brock.
The Fortnite Eddie Brock skin is available right now from Fortnite’s Item Shop, with Venom: Let There Be Carnage releasing in theatres on October 1.

Fortnite leak reveals Dune skins & cosmetics coming soon
Some new leaks have revealed that Epic Games are planning to add skins and cosmetics from the movie Dune in Fortnite Season 8.
A new leak has revealed that Epic Games are planning to add more crossover content in Fortnite Season 8, this time in the form of cosmetic skins from the new Dune film.
Epic Games often introduce new Fortnite skins that align with the release of major blockbuster movies, such as the Venom and Carnage skins that were were added alongside the release of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.
Now, the developers might be preparing another major crossover as some new leaks have revealed a few skins and cosmetic items that might be coming in Fortnite Season 8 alongside the release of the film Dune.
These leaks came from notable Fortnite data miner HYPEX, who shared images of the new outfits. The bundle will include the characters Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya) from the movie.

According to these leaks, the Dune bundle will also include:
- Twinblades melee weapon
- Maker Hooks
- The Stickworm wallpaper
- Sand Walk emote
- Fremkits for both characters
- Ornithopter attack ship
The Bundle price in the leaked image seemingly costs 4,600 V-Bucks, but HYPEX has stated that this is just the placeholder price, and the real one might be different.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and Epic Games have yet to verify this information, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, it makes perfect sense for them to add Dune skins around the film’s release in October 2021.

This Batman/Joker hybrid from another universe will soon be arriving in Fortnite, so here’s how to get the skin and associated cosmetics for yourself.
How to get The Batman Who Laughs Fortnite skin
The Batman Who Laughs will arrive in Fortnite’s Item Shop on October 26 at 5 PM PT / 8 PT ET / 1 AM BST (October 27).
It will also be available for those who purchase the upcoming Batman/Fortnite: Foundation comic.
The Batman Who Laughs bundle is set to arrive with:
- The Batman Who Laughs Outfit

- Dark Multiverse Set Pickaxe and Glider
The Batman/Fortnite: Foundation comic is set to also release on October 26 and will include a unique code that allows players to redeem the Outfit, Backbling, and a Loading Screen. The code will expire on November 12, 2025 – so there’s plenty of time to get the comic.

Who is The Batman Who Laughs?
The Batman Who Laughs is Bruce Wayne from Earth -22 of the Dark Multiverse, who has been fused with his arch-enemy, The Joker.
This version of Bruce Wayne became infected with the Joker toxin, turning him into a violent supervillain.
He first appeared in the Batman/Fortnite Zero Point Issue 6 and is sure to be a terrifying addition to Season 8’s roster of characters.
For more Fortnite, you can check out the Spider-Man crossover that HYPEX claims will arrive later this year.

Fortnite Foundation comic teases exclusive Batman skin
Epic Games might be teasing a brand-new exclusive skin in the first issue of the Fortnite Foundation comic crossover.
Fortnite is doing another DC crossover in the Batman Fortnite Foundation comic, and Epic Games might be teasing an exclusive new skin on the cover of the first issue.
The Foundation, the mysterious leader of The Seven and main figure in the Zero Point storyline, will be heading to Gotham City in the new comic, and we might be getting an exclusive new skin of the ‘Caped Crusader’ as well.
Notable Fortnite insider iFireMonkey revealed the cover art for the first issue of the one-shot comic titled “Batman/Fortnite: Foundation.” The two title characters are shown battling it out at the center of the art.
One thing that caught the attention of both Fortnite and DC fans was the lurking figure in the background of the cover. The design indicates that it’s The Batman Who Laughs, a version of Batman that was infected by the Joker toxin.
This has started speculation that this character would be an exclusive skin that will come bundled with Batman Fortnite Foundation #1 when it hits shelves on October 26.
While we don’t know much about the story of this new comic, physical copies of crossover comics usually have a code that players can use to unlock a new outfit. This has been the case with the previous Batman comic characters.
We previously saw characters like Harley Quinn and Catwoman join the fray along with Deathstroke’s glider. Epic Games might be planning to bring even more cool Batman-related skins in the game.

However, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just speculation. We don’t have any official confirmation from Epic Games about what new skin will be coming to the game next, but we might get some more info at DC FanDome this weekend.
