Here is everything you need to know bout this collaboration, including when you can get your hands on the items.

Fender x Fortnite is coming to Fortnite on March 13

According to an official press release from Epic Games, the Fender x Fortnite instrument collaboration arrives in the Item Shop this evening at 8 p.m. ET. Although the price point is currently unknown, you can purchase the instruments in exchange for V-Bucks.
