One of the first ways Fortnite was able to prove its mainstream success was by introducing popular real-world people into the game. Whether it’s Travis Scott, Lebron James, or Patrick Mahomes, it’s become a sort of Hollywood Star of Fame to be featured in Epic Games’ hit shooter. Today. Marshall Mathers joins the club – Eminem is coming to Fortnite.
The Grammy winner will be added to the game’s item shop on November 29. The image above shows the three versions of the rapper that will be available for purchase. From left to right, they’re called Rap Boy, Slim Shady, and Marshall Never More. This release comes a few days ahead of Fortnite’s Big Bang event, which is set to happen on December 2 at 2 PM Eastern. Alongside whatever world-altering event phenomena Epic plans to introduce, Eminem will be performing a live concert. Attendees will receive the Big Bang loading screen, featured at the head of this article.

It’s also come under fire for new rules about which skins are allowed in certain creator-made worlds: you can see their response to this controversy here.
