Eminem Joins Fortnite’s Star-Studded Cast.
Epic Games has announced that Grammy-winning rapper Eminem will be joining the Fortnite roster, adding to the hit game’s ever-expanding list of real-world celebrity collaborations. The new skins featuring the iconic artist will be added to the game’s item shop on November 29. The three versions of the rapper available for purchase are named Rap Boy, Slim Shady, and Marshall Never More.
The release of Eminem’s skins comes just ahead of Fortnite’s Big Bang event, scheduled to take place on December 2 at 2 PM Eastern. Alongside this event, Eminem is set to perform a live concert in the game, with attendees receiving the Big Bang loading screen as a featured reward.
This news follows Fortnite’s recent spotlight in gaming news due to the release of Fortnite OG, a record-setting new season that takes players back to the earliest maps in the game. However, it has also faced criticism over new rules regarding which skins are allowed in certain creator-made worlds, prompting a response from Epic Games.
With Eminem’s addition to Fortnite’s already impressive lineup of celebrity collaborations, the game continues to solidify its position in pop culture, drawing in players with exciting content and live events. As Fortnite continues to evolve and expand, it remains to be seen what other high-profile collaborations and events are on the horizon.
Fans and players alike are invited to share their thoughts on potential dream Fortnite collaborations in the comments section of the official announcement.
