Fortnite The Weeknd Skin Price

Fortnite Festival will have its very own Battle Pass that will have both a paid and free track. The regular Weeknd skin will be a reward for the Premium Pass, with players able to unlock him by spending Festival Point from completing Fortnite Festival quests. The pass costs 1800 V-Bucks, just less than double the cost of the Battle Pass, but you do get all sorts of other cosmetics and a skin that would likely cost 1500 V-Bucks if sold in the shop. Not to mention you also get tracks to use within Fortnite Festival.

The Weeknd Combat, meanwhile,  has ended up releasing in the Item Shop, with the skin itself setting you back 1800 V-Bucks.

The Weeknd skins are due to release in Fortnite alongside or just before the launch of Fortnite Festival, which is scheduled for Saturday, December 9th, 2023. The Weeknd is the marquee name attached to the brand new mode, but there are actually tonnes of very famous songs that players will be able to experience in rotation within Fortnite Festival.
