Fortnite will be launching another music-based tie-in this week, with the Wu-Tang Clan due to join the game, with various Wu Wear Items and a bunch of other guff inspired one of the most influential hip hop outfits of all time.
The Throwback BG and B.R.I.T.E Outfits will be coming to the Fortnite Item Shop, available individually or as together in the Wu Wear Bundle, which also includes the Wu-Tang Hands Emoticon and Wu-Tang Style Loading Screen. The Back Bling is also reactive to in-game music, changing in appearance; and the Pickaxe reacts to whatever you hit with it.
Additionally, the Wu-Tang is Forever Emote, Shimmy Surfer Glider, Wu Wrap, Wu-Tang Banner, and Wu Boom Spray round out the crossover content, and it all comes with the blessing of Wu-Tang stalwart RZA.
"Fortnite has been in my household for years. It's been a pleasure and joy watching the game evolve, while becoming the go to pastime,” the RZA saysa. "This collaboration is a multigenerational 'drip' of swag and cool. If what you say is true, Fortnite and Wutang could be Fortangerous…"
I'm not sure what that means. Anyway, Wu-Tang stuff will be coming to Fortnite from 23rd April at 8pm ET, alongside actual real-life Wu-Tang x Fortnite collab apparel for purchase here. You can find out more on the Fortnite blog here.
