Fortnite, the popular online game that has taken Gen Z by storm, recently announced that two high-profile artists would soon be available via in-game skins: Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak of Silk Sonic.
Mars and .Paak are being introduced via Fortnite’s Icon Series, featuring notable names like Marshmello, Major Lazer, and Travis Scott. The “Silk Sonic Set” will specifically become available in the in-game shop beginning Feb. 10, 2022.
However, fans will get the chance to win these skins—as well as other prizes—through the Duos Silk Sonic Cup, which is kicking off on Feb. 7. Specifics regarding the tournament’s rules are available online.
Coinciding with this news is the announcement of Icon Radio, an in-game feature that will allow players to bump hits from Silk Sonic while playing Fortnite. Bootsy Collins will host icon Radio, and it’s anticipated that more artists affiliated with Fortnite’s Icon Series will eventually be added.
Time to soar with @silksonic 🚀🚀
