Guess who’s back. Thanks to recent update files, we know that Eminem and the most diabolical villain in the world, Slim Shady, are making their way to Fortnite. Here’s everything we know so far, including Eminem’s skins, back bling, pickaxe, emote, and more.
Eminem x Fortnite Release Date
Eminem’s Rap Boy, Slim Shady, and Marshall Never More skins are arriving in the Fortnite Item Shop on November 29 at 7 pm ET.
If you attend The Big Bang live event, you’ll receive an exclusive style for the Marshall Never More skin. Eminem is playing a key part in the event, alongside the unlikely combination of Lego, Rocket League, and a few more surprises.
Fortnite Eminem Skins and Cosmetics
From the official announcement and data mines, here’s every Eminem Fortnite skin and cosmetic we know about so far:
- Never More Marshall — Outfit
- Slim Shady — Outfit
- Rap Boy — Outfit
- Mask Up — Built-in Emote for Slim Shady
- Shady Boom Box — Back Bling
- Shady Double Saw — Harvesting Tool
- The Big Bang — Loading Screen (Free)
According to some leakers, there are two other Back Blings and a universal Emote. I haven’t been able to 100% confirm their existence, but they seem highly likely when looking back on Ariana Grande and Travis Scott’s sets.
The Rap Boy skin is based on Slim’s appearance in the Without Me music video. Though a little less copyright infringing.
Slim Shady appears to have two main styles: his classic bleach-blond 2000s look and a masked version with a glowing outfit. He also has various minor options, such as a “headphones off” style. The Mask Up built-in emote lets you switch between the masked and unmasked version at any time.
Never More Marshall‘s look is taken directly from the Music to be Murdered By album cover, which may hint at which tracks we’ll hear in the event. Especially since this was the album where Em revealed he plays Fortnite in the crib with our grandmas.
Eminem / Slim Shady Fortnite Cosmetic Price
We don’t know the exact price for Eminem’s Fortnite cosmetics yet, but we can get a good idea by looking at previous Icon skins. Never More Marshall, Rap Boy, and Slim Shady should cost 1,500 – 2,000 V-Bucks each.
Bundles are as inevitable as death, taxes, and Dr. Dre references in Shady’s tracks. While typical bundles cost around 2,500 – 2,800 V-Bucks, Eminem having three skins may make it a little pricier.
