The skin was first introduced back in February of this year. This was just before DC released Birds of Prey, a movie starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in the lead role. At launch, the bundle was made available for those completing a set of in-game challenges.

Comic characters have been a strong presence in Fortnite. Two DC characters recently made their way into the game; both Aquaman and his arch-rival Black Manta have been a hit. The skins were unlockable after some sets of challenges.

Epic Games has been bringing in quite a few fan-favorite characters to Fortnite. This isn’t the first one we’ve seen and it won’t be the last. If you missed out on the Harley Quinn bundle back in February, go ahead and purchase the bundle from the item shop now.

As we mentioned earlier, Epic Games is looking at a sticky legal battle against Apple and Google. Epic implemented a new direct payment mode for IOS and Android platforms, which did not sit well with the two tech giants. Subsequently, in response to that, both removed Fortnite from their app stores.

Epic came forth with a lawsuit against Apple for their actions. Apple, in an official statement, commented that the decision to remove Fortnite was down to the violation of their guidelines since the new mode of payment was neither reviewed nor approved by them.

However, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney came forth to address the issue and professed that they are not fighting just for themselves but countless other developers and smartphone users.
