'Fortnite' Adds Silk Sonic Duo Bruno Mars And Anderson .Paak Skins Into The Game

by Rainier on Feb. 3, 2022 @ 10:31 a.m. PST

Fortnite is an expansive original world that invites players to be creative, resourceful and collaborative, combining building skills and destructible environments with intense PvP combat.

In Fortnite, players and their friends lead a group of Heroes to reclaim and rebuild a homeland that has been left empty by a mysterious darkness only known as “the Storm.”

Players will band together online to explore the world for resources, build extravagant forts, find or build insane weapons and traps as they protect their towns from the strange monsters that emerge during the Storm.

Fortnite Battle Royale is the FREE 100-player PvP mode in Fortnite. One giant map. A battle bus.

The last one standing wins.

Grammy-nominated R&B duo Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak (a.k.a Silk Sonic). In partnership with Atlantic Records, Fortnite is bringing Silk Sonic into the game with a brand new radio station, Outfits based on their signature style, and a player tournament. 

The Silk Sonic duo are long time Fortnite favorites - in September 2020, Anderson .Paak performed a ‘Spotlight Concert Series’ in the game, and in April 2021, Bruno Mars’ ‘Leave The Door Open’ emote came to Fortnite.

"When Fortnite asked me if I wanted to create an outfit for the game, I asked, 'Are CGI muscles off the table?' They said 'no.' I said 'deal.' I'll see you on the Island" stated Bruno Mars.

“When Fortnite agreed to give Bruno CGI muscles, I said, I’m in. He could use the help, so I support it. And it makes me cool. Win, win,” commented Anderson .Paak

"Back in the day I was crazy about arcade games, so being able to bridge the worlds of music and gaming with Fortnite is very exciting - both worlds offer players a great way to come together and relax," added Bootsy Collins.
