Compete in the Silk Sonic Cup to earn free Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak cosmetics!


The musical duo Silk Sonic has officially entered Fortnite's Icon Series. This morning, Epic Games announced the news that group members Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak would join Ariana Grande, J Balvin and a slew of other celebrities and well-known figures in the game's most exclusive cosmetic classification. 

The items involved in the collaboration will arrive in the Item Shop on February 10 at 7 PM EST. However, those looking to get their hands on the entire set early need not look any further than the Silk Sonic Cup.

Epic Games plans to host a tournament on February 7, where teams that finish at the top of each region will unlock Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak. Players can also earn a spray for free by compiling eight points in the tournament. 

Today, ESTNN brings you a complete breakdown of the tournament, including the format, scoring system and prize distribution.
