Fortnite aficionados can not only acquire these skins but also enhance the Marshall Never More outfit by attending “The Big Bang” event. Participants will unlock The Big Bang loading screen and the exclusive Marshall Magma Style, transforming Eminem’s in-game character with glowing eyes and fiery skin, adding a dynamic and visually striking element to the experience.
