The character of Harley Quinn now features in Fortnite, as part of a promotional crossover event between the popular battle royale game and the Birds of Prey cinema release.

Developer Epic Games has made the new Harley Quinn skin, designed in the likeness of the DC comics villain, available in its in-game shop.

In Birds of Prey, Harley Quinn is played by Margot Robbie. Robbie also played the role to some acclaim in 2016’s critically panned Suicide Squad.

The character skin arrives as part of a bundle, which also includes cosmetics like a pickaxe.

It also comes with a set of in-game challenges that unlock an alternative outfit, called “Always Fantabulous Harley”.

After days of people speculating that a Birds of Prey event was about to drop, Epic finally confirmed the news in a tweet:

The skin will be available until 17 February, Epic confirmed on their website.
