Headlines 04/02/2022

Grammy nominated R&B duo Silk Sonic have announced they are coming to Fortnite.

The duo will be featured on the "Icon Series" launch which includes new in-game outfits for players, a brand new in-game radio station, and player tournament.

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak will be available as skins to purchase in the item shop from February 10th 2022.

Coming alongside the new additions to the Fortnite Icon Series is a new in-game radio station, which launches today, called 'Icon Radio'. Featuring not only Silk Sonic’s newest tunes, but also Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s solo work, you can tune into 'An evening with Silk Sonic' with the one and only Bootsy Collins as the radio host.

There's an oppourtunity to be the first to get access to the skins with a Silk Sonic Cup opening on February 7, where winners can unlock the in-game cosmetics three days earlier than the rest.

Bruno Mars said "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."

Anderson .Paak said “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.”
