Epic Games revealed Ariana Grande character crossover

Ariana Grande is finally coming to Fortnite for The Rift Tour, a massive in-game concert event. Furthermore, gamers will be able to obtain a new skin based on the pop singer.

Epic Games has officially announced that the next A-list music star appearing on the Island for a special in-game performance is none other than Positions singer Ariana Grande, after months of rumors and teasing.


Ariana Grande will not only play as part of the Rift Tour, but she will also enter the Icon Series, where she will join musicians such as Travis Scott, Marshmello, and Major Lazer.

Like other crossover skins, Fortnite players and pop music fans will be able to get their hands on the Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite by purchasing it from the Item Shop when it goes live.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem there’s any way to win the outfit for free by competing in tournaments like certain previous skins.

Grande will make her Item Shop debut very soon, with her virtual performance, the Rift Tour, taking place this weekend. Epic said that the Ariana Grande skin and cosmetics would be available on August 4 at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET. The cosmetics will be accessible ahead of the performance, as they were for Travis Scott and Marshmello before her, which means innumerable admirers in the virtual audience will be outfitted to appear like the singer come showtime.

So, what's included in the set? Aside from the Ariana Grande skin, which comes in two different designs, the singer will also receive a slew of additional accessories. Here's what gamers will receive if they purchase the Ariana Grande set:
  • Ariana Grande Outfit w/ Rift Goddess Ariana Variant
  • Piggy Smallz Back Bling
  • LIl’ Floaticorn Emote
  • Sweetener Sailshards Glider
  • 7 Rings Smasher Pickaxe w/ Gem Striker Variant

An emote and Piggy Smallz Back Bling have also been teased, so there could potentially be an Ariana Grande bundle in the Item Shop. If there is, expect that to cost between 2,000 to 2,500 V-Bucks.

How much is the Ariana Grande skin in Fortnite?
Epic Games haven’t confirmed a price for the Ariana Grande skin yet, but we’d estimate that it will cost somewhere between 1,500 to 2,000 V-Bucks. For reference, Travis Scott’s skin went for 1,500 V-Bucks.

Ariana Grande skin styles


The first look has platinum hair and a dress that is reminiscent of Lady Gaga's Rain On Me song video. The second has dark hair and a Fortnite-inspired costume made of crystals.

How to watch Ariana Grande's Fortnite performance
Ariana Grande will perform as a musical guest on Fortnite's Rift Tour. This massive live event begins on Friday, August 6, 2021, at 6 p.m. ET, with several event times available.

While playing the game yourself will be the greatest way to enjoy the concert, there will undoubtedly be plenty of streams you can follow on Twitch and YouTube.
