Epic Games recently confirmed details on the new Fortnite Icon Series, which kicked off a few weeks back with a series of cosmetic items based around popular stream, Ninja.

Fortnite Battle Royale has been a mammoth success since it rolled out for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One back in 2017. The premise is decidedly simple, but it’s proven to be immensely popular and has managed to fend off competition from the likes of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds among other titles.

There’s also a paid version of the game called Fortnite: Save the World, which sees players teaming up against zombie-like enemies while completing various objectives. However, Battle Royale is by far the most popular incarnation of Epic Games’ shooter.

Fortnite Battle Royale amassed over 125 million users during its first year on the market, and has expanded to iOS and Nintendo Switch platforms. The game has also pulled in hundreds of millions of dollars on a monthly basis.

Fortnite is currently in its Chapter 2 phase, which offers a ton of new content and a brand new map to explore, plus activities including fishing and swimming to take part in.

Earlier this month, Epic Games welcomed a Harley Quinn costume and items into the game as part of a crossover event to celebrate the release of the film Birds of Prey. She’s available in the game’s shop until February 17, so you still have time to grab the pack if you fancy it.
