Prices for Fortnite’s Collaboration With Fashion Brand Balenciaga Will Make Your Eyes Water

Epic Games is no stranger to a Battle Royale-based collaboration, but prices for its latest clothing line deal with luxury fashion brand Balenciaga are likely to make even diehard Fortnite fans’ eyes water.

The Fortnite x Balenciaga collaboration features a number of in-game cosmetics that fans can purchase from within the item shop. However, it’s the price of Balenciaga’s IRL clothing range that is sure to make heads turn. Take the hoodie worn in the Shady Doggo skin pictured below – that’s the anthropomorphic dog dressed in white if you’re less familiar with the game. As well as being able to purchase the skin in-game, fans can buy a physical version of the same hoodie from the Balenciaga store… so long as they have a mere $725 to spare.

It doesn’t stop there though, the Balenciaga store is has a variety of Fortnite-branded products that you could remortgage your house to own. Weighing in on the lighter side of the range, fans can purchase a Fortnite branded Balenciaga hat for $395 dollars while fans really looking to spend top dollar on their merch can pick up a Fortnite branded denim jacket for $1290.

Luckily for some, the Balenciaga x Fortnite collaboration is far cheaper on the digital side of things. Between September 21 and September 28, fans will be able to unlock two free collaboration-based sprays in-game for completing challenges set by Shady Doggo. In addition, a number of Balenciaga based items and four unique collaboration-themed skins (Unchained Ramirez, Shady Doggo, Fashion Banshee and Game Knight) will be available for purchase in the Item Shop.

In other Fortnite collaboration news, Epic recently announced that Carnage would be the latest Marvel character to enter the Island. Joining as a part of the game’s monster-filled eighth season, the famed Spider-Man foe and Venom 2 villain is currently unlockable through the game’s Battle Pass.
