Fortnite is teaming up with popular music festival Coachella to bring the sounds and style of the event to Epic Games’ metaverse.
Crossovers are nothing new for Fortnite. From promoting highly anticipated movies to further immortalizing iconic video game characters, Fortnite has opened itself to a number of elaborate collaborations.
However, the crossover with Coachella is a first of its kind. Fortnite has crossed over with brands in the past, but never a festival. This crossover includes new in-game music, as well as multiple waves of cosmetics.
Fortnite x Coachella skins
There are two waves of Coachella skins coming to Fortnite. The first was released on April 14.
This wave includes skins Lyric and Wilder, the Neon Biter and Festival Shredder pickaxes, and the Finfin flair wrap. Each skin costs 1,500 V-Bucks, but a bundle including all items can be purchased for the discounted price of 2,800 V-Bucks.
The second wave of cosmetics drops on April 21 at 8 PM EST. This drop includes the Alto and Poet outfits, Softest Electropalm and Cactical Crusher pickaxes, and Mainstage Wrap.
These skins are also 1,500 V-Bucks each, but a similar bundle will be offered again for the price of 2,800 V-Bucks.
The cosmetics will only be available for a limited time, and it’s unknown whether they will be coming back. So, if you want to rock the threads of Coachella, you better snag these Fortnite cosmetics while you can.
