Fortnite is getting ready to welcome The Flash to the roster. The Scarlet Speedster will bring an entire Flash Set. The Flash Cup will provide an opportunity to unlock The Flash Outfit before it becomes available for purchase.

Fortnite is having quite a year already. From the DC Multiverse to the Zero Point and now to the Island, the Scarlet Speedster joins this timeline's fray. 

Everyone interested in getting a taste of the Speed Force in Fortnite can do so starting Sunday, February 14 at 00:00 a.m. GMT. Sunday will deliver the Flash Outfit to the game, alongside the rest of the whole Flash Set.

Included in The Flash Set 

  • The Flash Outfit: Enter the battle as Barry Allen.
  • The Speed Force Slashers Pickaxe: Lightning strikes twice with this dual-bolt Pickaxe.
  • The Speed Force Back Bling: Display The Flash’s electrified emblem.
  • The Quick Bite Emote: Grab a light(speed) snack.

The listed items will be available individually or as part of The Flash Bundle, which also includes a Flash-themed loading screen. It's supposed to be super fast, we hear.
