The Mandalorian has arrived as the headline addition to the game in Fortnite Season 5’s Battle Pass, and if you want to have his adorable companion Grogu floating beside him, here’s how you can do it.

Galactus’ attack on the Fortnite island may be over, but the Zero Point has been exposed in Season 5, and Jonesy has called in the best bounty hunters in the universe to keep everyone on the island.

One of those hunters is none other than The Mandalorian, who’s Disney+ show has quickly propelled him up the ranks to become one of the Star Wars franchise’s most recognizable and popular characters. He’s not the most beloved cast member on the show though, with ‘The Child’, affectionally known as Baby Yoda, becoming an internet sensation.

With Mando now included in the Season 5 Battle Pass, some players have wondered how they can get Grogu to float alongside him in his basket, and if you’re still not sure, we have everything you need to know.

The good news is that unlocking Baby Yoda as a back bling isn’t technically difficult or require any specific challenges to be completed. The bad news is that it’s going to take you a lot of time and demand you put some serious hours into Season 5.

That’s because the Baby Yoda back bling can only be unlocked when you reach Tier 100 on the paid version of the Battle Pass. Once you cross that barrier, you’ll be rewarded with a special Mandalorian skin featuring his full Beskar armor, and The Child as a back bling.

Of course, there is a short-cut should you choose to take it. If grinding doesn’t sound like your thing, you can skip tiers by spending your V-Bucks, but it will be a costly method to get Grogu.

Once you have unlocked the back bling, you simply need to go to your inventory and equip it, and the next time you jump into a match you’ll have the company of Baby Yoda, who will float along behind you.

Grogu comes with some cool animations that he’ll perform throughout matches, including standing up from his bed and having a look around at his new environment, and drinking from his cup as seen in Season 2 of the show.

There is no denying that Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the most popular games in the world, as the game quickly became a cultural phenomenon that has resulted in it having crossovers with various high-profile entertainment franchises and an extremely large player base that enjoys all of the action the game provides with every new season of content.

However, Fortnite has not always been one of the biggest games in the world, as the game and its popular battle royale mode are only a couple of years ago and took the video game industry by storm and helped establish common features for many games currently such as cross-platform play.

With this in mind, we will look at one simple question players may ask when thinking about the Fortnite release date that started it all.

September 26, 2017, is the official Fortnite release date for its battle royale game mode. The existence of this game mode was first revealed to the world on September 12, 2017.

Before the release of Fortnite Battle Royale, the Epic Games title was a player versus environment survival game where players had to build fortifications to defend themselves against waves of enemies.

However, the massive success of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds helped to inspire Epic Games to add a battle royale mode to Fortnite, and well the rest is history.

The Fortnite release date for battle royale marked a turning point in the gaming world and has seen the game become one of the most popular entertainment products across the world.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for the game, but there is no doubt that everything that the game has accomplished since the Fortnite release date of its battle royale mode will always be remembered.

Ariana Grande in Fortnite

A brand-new concert event has been leaked for Fortnite Season 7 with singer and actress Ariana Grande set to arrive as a new skin. Here’s everything we know about the event, including the start date.

Fortnite has seen several in-game events such as the Cosmic Summer Celebration, Rainbow Royale event, and even a Travis Scott concert. Now, it seems that another concert event will be coming to the game.

Some new leaks revealed the arrival of singer and actress, Ariana Grande, to the battle royale as a new skin, along with some other cosmetics, during an upcoming in-game concert event.

When is the Fortnite Ariana Grande concert?

According to notable Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey, the Ariana concert is currently set to take place on July 31, 2021. The files required for the event will be added when the v17.21 update goes live.

Content creator Ali-A has a theory that the recent influx of Pride cosmetics, the Rainbow Royale, and Ariana Grande concert are all connected, as the singer is performing at a Pride event in August.

Other leaks suggest that the Epic Games staff have already conducted a test launch for the in-game concert, so this release date is likely accurate. 

How much will the Fortnite Ariana Grande skin cost?

When Travis Scott came to Fortnite as a new skin, he was available as part of the battle royale’s ICON Series. The Ariana Grande skin will probably be released through the same means.

In that case, the skin will cost around 1,500 V-Bucks. This is the same price set for recent ICON Series skins like World Cup winner Bugha and NBA superstar Lebron James.

There will also be other cosmetics that arrive as part of the concert event, but details regarding all of this have been scarce. So we don’t know the exact price for these items, but we expect them to cost the same as previous Icon Series cosmetic sets.

With Season 8 set to start in September, the Ariana Grande concert event might be a fantastic way to make the final month of Season 7 more memorable. So far, Epic Games have been keeping it under wraps.

We’ll keep checking for more news regarding this, and will be sure to update this article as we learn more. Stay tuned to Charlie INTEL for updates, and check out how to complete all the Ferrari challenges in Fortnite.
