The game of all games keeps growing: After securing nearly every IP to be part of the game, and landing Billie Eilish, Fortnite is now adding Coachella to its insanely stacked resume.
Fortnite Partners With Coachella
Fortnite is officially partnering with the music festival to bring both the music and the fashion into the game. Yes, that means a bunch of new items are going to be added to the store. Also, songs from the festival will be available in the game via its Icon Radio station: While driving around, you can listen to Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, and more.
There is no word on whether there will be any in-game concerts, like we got with Travis Scott and Ariana Grande, but one can still hope. The items arriving will come in waves: The first wave includes the Wilder and Lyric outfits, along with equalizer skins that react to the music. More specifically, Wilder comes with the Finfin Back Bling, a Neon Biter Pickaxe and the Finfin Flair Wrap. Lyric comes with the Swaguaro Back Bling, and aside from all that, the Festival Shredder Pickaxe is available solo.
The second waves of items will be released on April 21, and includes the Alto outfit, equipped with the Sonic Vibes Back Bling and the Softest Electropalm Pickaxe. Wave two also includes Poet, who comes with the Cosmonautic Helmet Back Bling, and additionally we get the Cactical Crusher Pickaxe, and the Mainstage Wrap.
