Fortnite Brings Eminem To The Game Next Week, As Skins Leak

The iconic rapper is headed to Fortnite.


Epic Games has confirmed that rapper, producer, and actor Eminem is coming to the battle royale game Fortnite. In a post on social media, Epic announced that, as rumored, Eminem will have a role to play in the upcoming Big Bang event, and based on a new leak, new Eminem skins will also be released.

The Big Bang, as it's called, aims to offer a "new beginning" of Fortnite. Eminem himself also posted about the upcoming event, which begins on December 2, with a video featuring his song "Tone Deaf" and specifically the line where he sings, "At the crib, playin' Fortnite with your grandma."

Promotional art for the upcoming Eminem x Fortnite event has leaked online, showing three versions of Eminem that may be coming to Fortnite through the event. According to the leak, Eminem will have several in-game outfits available beginning November 29, just ahead of The Big Bang.

In addition to a crossover with Eminem, the Big Bang update in Fortnite will also reportedly have a Lego connection of some type. The official Lego account posted a Lego Fortnite llama as a tease. Beyond that, there is no word on what else the Big Bang might include.

Although there is no official word as of yet, the current Fortnite season is expected to wrap up soon. Chapter 5 is widely expected to follow.

Fortnite recently reverted to the original Fortnite map as part of a throwback event. This proved to be massively popular, helping catapult Fortnite to its biggest player numbers ever.
