Epic Games have announced that they are teaming up with popular musicians Major Lazer to release a brand new skin and cosmetic item set to their popular battle royale title Fortnite. 

This is the second time that the developers have partnered with one of the world’s most popular musical acts, following their special in-game Marshmello concert, and the cosmetics that were released to mark that occasion. 

Diplo, Walshy Fire and Ape Drums make up the 2019 iteration of Major Lazer, and fans of the group will soon be able to show their allegiance in Fortnite with the new skin.

What’s in the Major Lazer Fortnite bundle?

Fortnite fans will be able to grab hold of a brand new skin designed to look like the main character of the trio’s animated show, which ran for fifteen episodes back in 2015. 

Players will also be able to grab a special pickaxe, back bling and dance called “Major Moves,” although whether they will all be available for purchase or if some will be unlocked by completing challenges remains unknown.

When does the Major Lazer bundle release, and how much will it cost?

If you’re excited to get your hands on the brand new Major Lazer bundle, the good news is that you won’t have long to wait, as it officially releases today in the Fortnite Item Shop. Epic Games haven’t mentioned a specific release time, but it should go live when the shop undergoes it’s daily refresh at 5PM PT / 8PM ET.

The price for the skin has yet to be revealed, but should they decide to stick with a similar pricing model as they used with the Marshmello skin, it will likely cost around 1,500 V-Bucks.
