'Fortnite' Gets Fashionably Expensive With Latest Balenciaga Collaboration

Epic Games recently announced a partnership with luxury fashion brand Balenciaga to bring the latest merch collection online and IRL.

The Fortnite x Balenciaga limited capsule features numerous in-game looks that fans can now purchase and sport in as their everyday attire. Fans are given the chance to match the skins they purchased in-game with a physical version like the white Balenciaga hoodie as seen on Shady Doggo. Though it seems quite appealing, fans need to be ready to shell out $725 USD for the piece. Prices for the merch collection continue to be fashionably expensive as it does not stop there.

Products in the lower price range of the collection still sport a hefty price tag. Fans can buy a Fortnite and Balenciaga co-branded hat for $395 USD and for those looking for top dollar merch, they can spend $1290 USD on a Fortnite branded denim jacket. Fortunately for fans, digital merch is far cheaper than physical items. Between September 21 and 28, fans will be able to unlock two free collaboration-based sprays in-game as long as they complete Shady Doggo’s challenges. The Fortnite x Balenciaga-themed skins for Unchained Ramierez, Shady Doggo, Fashion Banshee and Game Knight will be available for purchase in the Item Shop.
