A new Fortnite leak has revealed an upcoming Dune cosmetics collaboration.
Known Fortnite leaker, HYPEX, revealed in a tweet earlier today that a new collaboration will soon be making its way to Fortnite. New cosmetics themed around the upcoming release of Dune will be coming to the Item Shop, though it's not clear exactly when. Judging from the leaks, a fair amount of themed cosmetics will be added, including new skins and back bling.
Dune, the next science fiction epic from Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, is the first of a two-part adaptation of the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert. Villeneuve's version is the second film adaptation of the novel, the first having been made by David Lynch in the 80s. A Dune collaboration certainly feels like a strange one to be added to the Fortnite universe, though it wouldn't be the first move tie-in the game has had. In September, Fortnite added a selection of Shang-Chi cosmetics in the run-up to the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
What Dune Cosmetics Are Coming to Fortnite?
From the leaks, it seems that a number of Dune cosmetics will be added to the battle royale, including Paul Atreides and Chani skins (played by Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya, respectively). Here's everything we know, so far, that will be included in the collaboration:
- Paul Atreides outfit
- Chani outfit
- Fremkit back bling
- Chani's satchel back bling
- Sand Walk emote
- Ornithopter glider
- The Stickworm loading screen
- Maker Hooks harvesting tool
- Twinblades harvesting tool
For the most part, this is a pretty standard set and will likely be available as a bundle. Epic Games have yet to formally annnounce the cosmetics set, meaning that we don't have a confirmed price for the items. With the film set to release on Oct. 22, though, it's likely that Epic Games will announce the full set within the next few days.
