From Battle Royale to Rock Star: Fortnite x Fender Collaboration Details, Release Date & More

Curious about the release date for the new rockin’ Fortnite x Fender collaboration? Look no further! This guide gives you all the details about this electrifying partnership and how you can shred in Fortnite Festival.

About Fortnite

Fortnite is a free-to-play online game and platform that offers something for everyone. Whether you’re battling it out in the free-to-play Battle Royale mode, teaming up with friends to defend against hordes in Save the World, or unleashing your creativity in Creative mode, Fortnite has endless possibilities.

Fortnite x Fender Collaboration Release Date

The Fender x Fortnite collab launched on March 13, 2024, so you can grab your virtual axe (or bass) and hit the stage right now! Head to the in-game Item Shop and snag these digital instruments to dominate the Festival mode’s Main Stage and Jam Stage. Jam alongside music from world-famous artists, or shred some epic riffs in classic Battle Royale.

What Kinds of Guitars Are Available?

This collab isn’t a one-trick pony. You can choose from two of Fender’s most iconic instruments: the timeless Stratocaster and the thumping Precision Bass. Each comes in a variety of colors to suit your style:

  • Fender Stratocaster: Black, Fiesta Red, Lake Placid Blue
  • Fender Precision Bass: Black, Buttercream, Tidepool

This partnership between Fortnite and Fender might be just the beginning. With a vast instrument collection beyond the Stratocaster and Precision Bass, Fender has the potential to bring even more musical options to the game.

Can I Use a Real Guitar Controller?

While rocking out with a real guitar controller sounds amazing, there’s no official word on Fortnite Festival supporting them yet. While Epic Games and Harmonix have hinted at future compatibility, for now, you’ll need a traditional controller to shred in Festival mode.

Third-party manufacturers like PDP are stepping in with the upcoming Riffmaster controller, compatible with both Fortnite Festival and Rock Band 4. But whether guitar compatibility will be live by the Riffmaster’s spring release remains to be seen.

So grab your favorite pickaxe (or should we say, pick) and get ready to rock out in Fortnite with the Fender collaboration!
