The Flash's, the Scarlet Speedster from the DC Universe, entrance into Fortnite was previously teased and leaked so its no surprise to see him officially unveiled today, alongside the announcement of a one-day tournament, aptly named, The Flash Cup.
The Flash Outfit will officially hit stores on Saturday, 13th February but players can get their hands on at least some of his superhuman cosmetics.
The entirety of The Flast Set includes:
- 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.
However, players keen to get their hands on some of these cosmetics can do so by competition in The Flash Cup with both the Outfit and The Speed Force Back Bling rewards for finishing near the top of the leaderboard.
The tournament is a one-day event and kicks off on the 10th of February. All the information on how you can get involved is below.
The one-day event will take place on the 10th of February and run for approx three (3) hours.
Each region starts at 5 pm local time.
