Fortnite adds a new emote and song inspired by Lizzo

Fortnite has now added a new “Pump Me Up” emote with music by Lizzo and moves by Jaedan Gomez. The emote can be purchased now for 300 V-Bucks. While players will have to decide for themselves if the emote is worth buying, many fans seem happy with the new addition and are excited to try it out with some of the game’s skins. Given the large number of skins currently available in Fortnitethere are lots of fun combinations to try out, and fans are already sharing videos of characters like Goku using it!

A video of the emote in action can be found in the official’s Tweet Fortnite Twitter account integrated below.

Ahead of the new emote’s debut, Epic Games also warned fans that the new Desdemona skin will be leaving the store tonight. The skin debuted yesterday, so fans had a pretty short window to nab it compared to most of the game’s additions. It’s not clear exactly why this one is being removed so quickly, but hopefully fans interested in the skin were given the option to purchase it before it was removed. The Desdemona skin seems like a great way for players to celebrate the Halloween season in-game, but Fortnite should have many more fun designs throughout October.

As Desdemona leaves the shop tonight, Fortnite fans still have until October 18 to catch X-23. The addition of Laura Kinney to the game has been exciting for X-Men fans, although many prefer to call her Wolverine. The character has been a fan favorite since his debut in 2004, and is just one of many Marvel skins that have been made available in Fortnite over the years.

Fortnite is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game here.
