Harley Quinn is the next DC character to hit Fortnite

DC Comic’s iconic Harley Quinn is headed for Fortnite, according to a new leak.

She’ll be the latest in a string of DC characters to appear in the game. Lucas7yoshi posted information on Twitter, suggesting that Harley Quinn will soon be added to the game. She will seemingly be available in both of her recent cinematic guises – from Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey.

The information was also leaked by another Fortnite leak poster, ShiinaBR.

So far, Harley’s addition to the game has not been confirmed by Epic Games. However, multiple leaks of the same info suggest this is likely to go ahead. Equally, past Fortnite leaks have often turned out to be true.

This follows in-game appearances from Batman and Catwoman. It’s another treat for fans of the DC universe.

Birds of Prey is out this week (February 7) and this is a pretty transparent attempt to promote the film. Fortnite is hugely popular right now too, meaning its a pretty sensible place to promote the new release.

That said, as a character Harley is actually quite well suited to the Fortnite universe. She ticks the two main boxes: Colourful and violent.

Depending on which version of Harley you choose, a baseball bat or mallet takes the place of the usual Fortnite pickaxe.

When our team got hands on with Fortnite they were impressed, giving the game a four-star rating.

Our reviewer got to the bottom of the concept and explained why it’s so much fun. They said:

“Fortnite has a simple concept, when you think about it: 100 players enter, but only one is crowned the victor. Everyone goes in with the hopes of being Rambo; fending off 99 other players until all that’s left is the delectable taste of victory. That isn’t always the case, though. In reality, it’s more akin to being an expendable soldier in Predator. No matter how hard you try, there’s always that one guy hiding in a bush with a sniper ready to clock you when you run past.

“Fortnite’s stylish looks and risk-taking ideas are what’s made it into the powerhouse you know today. Mention Fortnite to kids anywhere and they’ll probably know what you’re on about. In emulating pop culture with its meme-like dances and Pixar-good-looks, Fortnite has became pop culture itself.”
