Because Fortnite is now the most important pop culture potpourri of recent years, we are hardly surprised to discover the latest collaboration between the battle royale star and the American music industry: it is now the turn of the R&B duo Silk Sonic to pay for an appearance in the Epic Games hit, with a series of skins and cosmetic items. Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak thus make their virtual arrival a few months after the release of An Evening with Silk Sonic, their first collaborative album.
Silk Sonic gets on time Fortnite
The launch of this collaboration for the “Icons” series is dated for February 11th. Two skins and a selection of cosmetic items will be put on sale on the game store, as described by the official press release from Epic Games:
The Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak outfits are part of the Silk Sonic set, which also includes accessories inspired by the duo members. Step into the shoes of Bruno Mars to put on a show by grabbing the Sound Scepter pickaxe (sold with the outfit), then wear it as a back accessory during the instrumental solos! Also enjoy the Wheels of Freedom emote. Spin them! As for stylish rapper Anderson .Paak, carry the beat with you with the Sonic Snare Back Bling (sold with the outfit) and go wild with the Thresher Pickaxe.
The other novelty that goes well: a new radio station will also be available in the vehicles of the game. It will include music from the Silk Sonic and will be hosted by Bootsy Collins, legendary funk artist who collaborated with Mars and .Paak for their debut album in duet.
For those who don’t want to wait for them to be posted on the game’s item store, a Silk Sonic Cup will be organized on Monday, February 7th. During a window of three hours, it will be possible to play ten games to be able to unlock the outfits of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak as well as their accessories Sound Scepter and Sonic Snare Drum. And for those who manage to collect at least eight points, an aerosol bearing the image of the two artists will be up for grabs.
