A brand new Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin is on the way in Fortnite Season 8, giving the singer a space-themed outfit style and matching cosmetics. Here’s how you can get it.

When pop superstar Ariana Grande appeared in Fortnite’s Rift Tour earlier in 2021, it was one of the battle royale’s biggest crossovers yet, featuring not only a brilliant skin based on the singer but also a virtual concert that celebrated Fortnite’s history.

Now, in a surprise turn of events, Ariana is returning once again to Fortnite, except this time she’s suited and booted for Season 8’s Cube theme with a Spacefarer skin known as Captain A. Grande, as well as an epic Starfire alternate style.
