As the anticipation builds for Fortnite’s Chapter 4 live event, leaked information suggests that the gaming universe is about to witness an extraordinary collaboration – an Eminem skin. Here’s what you can expect from this exciting addition.

Eminem x Fortnite Skin Release Date

The highly anticipated Eminem skins are scheduled to make their debut in Fortnite on Thursday, November 30, 2023, at 12AM GMT, marking the beginning of a new era for the game.

Skin Variants

Players will have the option to purchase three distinct Eminem skins: Rap Boy, Slim Shady, and Marshall Never More. Each skin will be available for individual purchase in the Fortnite Item Shop, along with their corresponding accessories.

  • Slim Shady: The Slim Shady Skin pays homage to Eminem’s alter ego, Slim Shady. This Outfit presents a classic representation of Eminem. Additionally, the Slim Shady Skin features the Mask Up built-in Emote, allowing players to seamlessly transition to a mask-wearing Slim Shady appearance.
  • Rap Boy: The Rap Boy Outfit portrays Eminem as a superhero, drawing inspiration from his iconic music video for “Without Me.” Players who don the Rap Boy Outfit can embody Eminem’s superhero persona within the game.
  • Marshall Never More: Marshall Never More showcases a sophisticated and stylish Eminem, based on the cover of his album “Music To Be Murdered By.” This particular Eminem Outfit offers an exclusive style known as Marshall Magma. However, unlocking the Marshall Magma style requires attending The Big Bang event. Missing the event will result in the inability to obtain the Marshall Magma style.
