The Fortnite Icon Series Adds Silk Sonic Duo Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak
Epic Games continues to the collaboration brigade and this one is a bit strange but exciting nonetheless as Silk Sonic‘s Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak join Fortnite‘s Icon Series and can be found in the battle royale game as of today.
The duo will not be available straight away as a Silk Sonic Cup will be happening on Monday, February 7th and the items will become available for everyone on February 10th. You’ll be able to listen to some Silk Sonic tracks thanks to Fortnite’s new in-game radio station, Icon Radio. For example, when driving around in a car, you can listen to songs by Silk Sonic, Bruno Mars, and Anderson .Paak. Also, Bootsy Collins will host the radio station.
Here are the Silk Sonic items you’ll see in Fortnite:
- Bruno Mars outfit (part of the Silk Sonic set)
- Anderson .Paak outfit (part of the Silk Sonic set)
- Sound Scepter Pickaxe (sold with the Bruno Mars outfit – becomes Back Bling when not in use)
- Sonic Snare Back Bling (sold with the Anderson .Paak outfit)
- Boom Bap Pickaxe
- Freedom Wheels emote (do a lil spin and do it again)
Both character skins will have alternative styles as you will be able to see below.
As previously mentioned, you can get all of these items in the Fortnite Item Shop on February 10, but you can also earn some of them in the Silk Sonic Cup on February 7.
