Epic Games is ready to reveal another mashup between Fortnite: Battle Royale and EDM musicians.
Some descriptions that data miner Silox found look like emotes, such as a dance called “Major Moves.” They also found what seems to be an unreleased character skin described as “Major Oswald joins your Homebase.”
Silox was able to import the leaked files into his game and confirm that there’s a Major Lazer skin within the v10.10 update files. They also found the dance and were able to reproduce it in-game along with showing a pickaxe that seems to be part of the bundle.
Despite all of these files being hidden in everyone’s Fortnite game files now, it doesn’t necessarily mean Epic is releasing them at all. Other cosmetics have been added in previous updates and never released. But this Major Lazer bundle seems to be a special case of collaboration between Epic and the band and it’ll likely be confirmed soon.
If this set is released, it’ll be the second time Epic has partnered with EDM musicians for Fortnite. In February, the company released cosmetic items themed after Marshmello and released a special game mode where all players could watch and experience a concert he made especially for Fortnite. Players were able to interact with the concert environment while Marshmello played his songs for 10 minutes and the musician says over 10 million people took part in it.
Data miners have yet to find evidence of a new EDM concert coming to Fortnite, but this bundle is already a sign of a partnership that will bring more exclusive items for players.
