Ariana Grande is finally coming to Fortnite for a huge in-game concert event called The Rift Tour. Even better, players will also be able to get a new skin based on the pop superstar.
After months of rumors and teasers, Epic Games have finally confirmed that the next A-list music icon arriving on the Island for a special in-game concert is none other than Positions singer Ariana Grande!
As well as performing as part of the Rift Tour event, Ariana Grande will also get her own skin in the game as she joins existing big-name artists like Travis Scott, Marshmello, and Major Lazer in the Icon Series.
How to get the Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite
Like other crossover skins, Fortnite players and pop music fans will be able to get their hands on the Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite by purchasing it from the Item Shop when it goes live.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem there’s any way to win the outfit for free by competing in tournaments like certain previous skins.
Ariana Grande skin release date
The Ariana Grande skin will be released in Fortnite when the Item Shop resets on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, at 5PM PT / 8PM ET / 1AM BST (August 5, 2021) and will likely stick around for a few days.
This means players will have two days to purchase the Ariana Grande skin and battle as the superstar before she arrives in Fortnite for the Rift Tour concert on August 6, 2021.
How much is the Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite?
If you want to get the Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite, it will cost you 1,500 V-Bucks by itself. Then, there are also a number of cosmetics that players can purchase to match the skin.
