Fortnite x Dune Collaboration 🏜️ List of Upcoming Items

Fortnite x Dune Collaboration

 

No brand is safe from Fortnite. Not even the latest book-based film Dune.

Epic Games first announced the introduction of the protagonists: Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and Chani (Zendaya) on a Tweet, then later published a blog post showing the whole set of items being introduced this October 19th.

Let’s see what can we get from this crossover:

 

 

 

How to Get All the Fortnite x Dune Items 

 

There are two different bundles to choose from.

The Dune Bundle costs 2,000 V-Bucks and contains the two outfits (1,500 V-Bucks each), Sandworm loading screen, and back-blings (Fremkit and Chani’s Satchel).

The Dune Gear Bundle costs 1,500 V-Bucks and contains the rest of the items:

 

  • Twinblades pickaxe (The weapon of choice for an Atreides warrior)
 
  • Maker Hooks pickaxe (A Fremen hook used to ride sandworms)
 
  • Sand Walk emote (Walk like Arrakis natives)
 
  • Ornithopter glider (Multi-winged attack ship)
 
 

Here’s the emote and loading screen in-game:

The tie-up arrives just a few days before Dune’s premiere in theaters and on HBO Max.

 

This is the text Epic Games used to promote this crossover cosmetic collection:

“Destined to change the course of the universe, Paul Atreides weaves his own destiny and now, with Chani at his side, their travels take them to the heart of a battle they had not prepared for… a battle on the Fortnite Island.”

 

This is a great intro text for the collection inspired by the 1965 scientific novel and sequels by Frank Herbert, as well as all kinds of comics, television mini-series, and games.

Board and video ones, 1992 Cryo Interactive’s “Dune” was the first successful video game adaptation. Released on desktop, it also received a sequel that came out to poor reviews, leaving the developing company in bankruptcy shortly after.

DreamCatcher Interactive Inc. (a currently non-existing company) purchased some of their assets and nothing new has been heard of a next-game videogame. Only speculations.


In the meantime, we get Dune’s intersection, which is one among many other space references inside Fortnite.

Do you remember the ancient astronaut or map-swallowing black hole?

What about J.B. the Chimpanski or that UFO-themed season 7? 

 

Now, on October 21st, we got an “Ariana Grande-themed Spacefarer” skin (1,500 V-Bucks), which comes in the “Spacefarer Ariana Grande Bundle” at 2,800 V-Bucks.

 It includes:

 

  • Spacefarer Ariana Grande Skin (with Starfire style)
 
  • I.R.I.S Back Bling
 
  • Spooky Smallz Back Bling
 
  • I.R.I.S. Daydream Glider
 
  • Moonlit Lightscythe Pickaxe
 
  • Just Keep Breathin’ Emote
 

Described by Epic as the  “galaxy’s greatest monster hunter”, you can also find Ariana Grande friendly NPC around the Believer Beach POI to access her “Punchcard” questline in return for XP.
