Futurama Fortnite Event Sees Fry, Leela, And Bender Drop Onto The Island

Good news everyone!


Fortnite's island is about to get a delivery from Planet Express. After teasing the collaboration yesterday, Epic Games has confirmed Futurama will be joining Fortnite's ever-growing list of partners, with multiple skins and other cosmetics included in the event.

Three of Futurama's most recognizable characters--Philip J. Fry, Leela, and the robotic Bender--will see cosmetic bundles added to the in-game item shop today. Each skin will be bundled with an alternate style and a back bling, with multiple pickaxes, a glider, and an emote also available for purchase.

The cosmetic bundles coming to the item shop as part of the Futurama Fortnite event are as follows:

  • Philip J. Fry skin
    • Includes Universe 1 Fry alternate style and Hypnotoad back bling
  • Turanga Leela skin
    • Includes Universe 1 Leela alternate style and Nibbler back bling
  • Bender Bending Rodriguez skin
    • Includes Universe 1 Bender alternate style and Ben Rodriguez back bling
  • Other Accessories (all available separately)
    • Giant Nutcracker pickaxe
    • Solid Gold Fiddle pickaxe
    • Unbendable Girder pickaxe
    • Planet Express Ship glider
    • Zoidberg Scuttle emote

A new weapon, Bender's Shiny Metal Raygun, will also now appear on the island during battle royale matches, both among loot found on the ground and/or in chests as well as via Bender himself (for a fee). The Shiny Metal Raygun has infinite plasma ammo, but it will overheat and need to cool down if fired too often.

Fortnite is available to download now for free on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.
