Epic Games’ Fortnite collaboration with Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse Part One has finally started and you can get your hands on a Lobby Track that features brand-new music – a song named “Silk and Cologne” – from Metro Boomin’s upcoming soundtrack. If you want to get your hands on it and take a listen in-game, you’ll be pleased to know that this is actually a free reward for a Fortnite weekly quest. Gameplay’s important, but this is just another thing that makes this one of the best battle royale games out there.
If you want to know what song we’re talking about, all we know at the moment is that it’s a track called “Silk and Cologne (EI8HT version)” – with EI8HT being a new label from DJ and producer Eats Everything and DJ Andres Campo. We can’t work out which artist EI8HT is collaborating with to bring this track to life, at the moment, but we think you’ll agree with us when we say it’s a banger.
Ahead of the official release of the Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse Part 1 soundtrack on June 2, players are uploading this track online – or, at least, sections of it – thanks to this Fortnite Lobby Track. So, you can take a listen to the main hook below:
Sounds nice, right? If you want to get your hands on this, all you need to do is complete the “Anyone Can Wear The Mask” challenge for Week 11. That challenge requires you to swing ten times using the Spider-Verse Web Shooters before landing. As long as you can get to the Mega City POI, this should be a piece of cake.
Silk and Cologne (EI8HT version) joins new tracks from Metro Boomin and Don Toliver (“Link Up”), Metro Boomin and James Blake (“Hummingbird”), and Coi Leray (“Self Love”). However, with the Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack featuring 13 tracks, we’re expecting a few more songs to drop both before June 2 and when the full soundtrack is released.
If you’re looking to get your hands on more free stuff, you’ll be pleased to know that the Fortnite Web Battles event is offering up even more free rewards for battle royale players.
It’s clear that Fortnite is one of the best free shooting games available – and it has been for a while. However, it also continues to become a fantastic hub for pop culture crossovers and collaborations. If you want to see how people are pushing that to the limit, you can check out the best Fortnite creative codes right here and everything you need to know about some upcoming free Doctor Who cosmetics – which is another in a long line of collaborations from Fortnite. Oh, and you can find out why the most popular Spider-Man variant is missing from Across The Spider-Verse right here – something that means they’re probably not popping up in-game anytime soon.
