Epic Games is partnering with Ferrari to bring one of the carmaker’s legendary sports cars to Fortnite, the two companies announced on Thursday. (They teased the collaboration on Wednesday.)
Fortnite is already well-known for its celebrity and brand collaborations, but the Ferrari coming to the game, the 296 GTB hybrid sports car, is the first licensed car to appear in the hugely popular battle royale shooter.
Cars have become a staple of the game since they were added nearly a year ago, but until now, they’ve all been generic representations of different kinds of cars, such as a sedan, a pickup truck, and yes, even a sports car.
Epic says the Ferrari will play like other vehicles in Fortnite but will sound like what you’d hear from the real car. If you aren’t familiar with the Ferrari 296 GTB and want to see one up close, check out Ferrari’s configurator for the car, which is powered by Epic’s Unreal Engine.
Fortnite isn’t the only battle royale shooter featuring licensed cars. PUBG: Mobile just added Teslas, including Model Ys that drive you to preset markers and self-driving Tesla Semis that carry battle supplies.
