There will be two different outfits available, along with Wu-Tang accessories like reactive backpacks and, of course, a Wu-Tang hand emote.

The music gradually infiltrated FortniteThe battle royale in a variety of ways, from a crossover with Coachella to in-game gigs from Ariana Grande and Travis Scott. Meanwhile, real-world celebrities continue to join the game’s huge library of characters, most recently with additions like snowboarder Chloe Kim and tennis star Naomi Osaka. Wu-Wear also joins other fashion brands like Balenciaga in the game.

Fortnite is having something of a resurgence lately, thanks in large part to the introduction of a Zero Build mode as part of the most recent season. Earlier this week, Epic added Moon Knight to the game’s ever-growing list of licensed fighters.
