In just a few days, fans can get Eminem in Fortnite right before his big concert unfolds in The Big Bang live event.
The Fortnite Icon Series features some of the biggest stars in the world, from athletes like Neymar Jr. and LeBron James to musicians like Ariana Grande and Travis Scott. Now, one of the greatest rappers of all time is joining the Battle Royale ahead of Fortnite Chapter 5. Eminem is set to takeover the Item Shop and perform a Fortnite concert to close out Fortnite OG.
Here's a breakdown of how to get Eminem in Fortnite.
How to Get Eminem in Fortnite
To get Eminem in Fortnite, players must purchase his skins from the Item Shop once they go live. Unlike previous additions to the Fortnite Icon Series, Eminem is getting three skins that display the rapper's iconic looks over the course of his career.
Fans can purchase the Rap Boy, Slim Shady, and Marshall Never More styles from the Item Shop, either separately or in special Bundles.
According to reliable Fortnite leaker, iFireMonkey, those who participate in The Big Bang will receive the Marshall Magma style for free if they already own the Marshall Never More skin.
When is Eminem Coming to Fortnite?
Eminem is coming to Fortnite on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2023. The skins will go live in the Item Shop at 7 p.m. ET just a few days before The Big Bang live event. Players will be able to load into the event wearing an Eminem skin.
Fortunately, Epic Games confirmed that their recent age restrictions on cosmetics will not impact The Big Bang. They assured fans, "You can use any cosmetic at our next big in-game event." In fact, by Chapter 5, almost all restrictions will be eliminated from Fortnite.
When is the Eminem Concert in Fortnite?
The Eminem concert in Fortnite kicks off on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023, at 2 p.m. ET. The end of Chapter 4 will feature the concert, along with a preview of the changes coming in Fortnite Chapter 5, including Rocket Racing, LEGO, and Rhythm modes.
Once the concert and the event concludes, players will only be able to load into Creative matches as they await the next Chapter dropping on Sunday, Dec. 3, 2023.
