Metallica joins Fortnite in massive collaboration

Fortnite dropped the intel yesterday regarding the Fortnite Festival Season 4 Pass, which includes various Metallica cosmetic items and more. Like in previous Festival Passes, you can unlock items via the Free Track or spend 1,800 V-Bucks and upgrade to the Premium Track, which contains all four Metallica Fortnite skins.

Other Fortnite x Metallica details include new Jam Tracks, a new Fortnite Festival game mode, an in-game concert coming soon, a Metallica POI, and more.

New POI: Metallica Island

Speaking of the Metallica POI, Epic Games created and dedicated this floating island to the heavy metal band. It recognizes their current world tour and features plenty of references, music, a stage, and projections of all four band members rocking their instruments. The video above via Perfect Score shows what Metallica Island offers in Fortnite v30.10.

New Mythic item: Ride The Lightning

On top of the Metallica Island POI, Epic Games also honors the band in-game with a new Mythic item called "Ride The Lightning." This item functions similarly to the Nitro Fists introduced this season, allowing you to launch yourself into the air and across the landscape.

It deals damage upon landing, and you can ride a teammate's lightning wave. The Ride The Lightning Mythic spawns in Chests and on various stage settings around the map.
