Epic and Hasbro have collaborated in the past and gamers got to see a special edition of Monopoly based upon Fortnite.

In order to get a hold of the Monopoly cosmetics in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8, gamers will be required to buy the special edition of the board game.

Gamers who pre-order the item will get a code that will redeem all the Monopoly Back Blings in the game. However, gamers should note that the Fortnite Monopoly edition costs $36.99 without taxes (as listed on the official GameStop website).

The code will only redeem eight Monopoly Back Blings but no special skins are there to claim.

The unavailability of Monopoly skins with this pack and the higher cost has raised significant questions regarding its value for money.

Regardless, these are rare items and do not usually feature in the Item Shop. Epic Games had prematurely published a tweet that revealed information regarding the upcoming Fortnite Monopoly collaboration.

Several gamers and data miners were able to read the tweet before it was taken down. The tweet stated that the pre-order will give gamers early access to the Back Blings.

In simple terms, early access gives gamers the opportunity to own the items before others. Hence, the possibility of Monopoly Back Blings coming to the Fortnite Item Shop is quite high.

Considering this scenario, spending close to $40 for eight Back Blings may be a bitter pill to swallow.
