Fortnite is apparently getting a new emote that mimics a dance that was quite popular several years ago. The Gangnam Style dance emote is now officially available inside Fortnite, about eight years after the song that led to those dance steps was at its peak in popularity.
While most of the leaks from people like ShiinaBR and HYPEX were surrounding updates like the potential addition of mounted weapons in Fortnite, both leakers also hinted at Gangnam Style making an appearance in the game as well. Earlier on Thursday afternoon, it was the title's official Korean Twitter account that hinted at the addition of the dance emote. Not long after the tweet showed several of the game's characters standing on a building and showing off their moves, the emote officially landed in the Battle Royale.
In order to get the Gangnam Style emote, players don't need to jump through any complicated hoops. There isn't a need to level up before someone can strut their stuff. Anyone who wants to bust a move just needs to buy the dance from the Fortnite item shop. Those who want to make the purchase will just need to shell out 500 V-Bucks. Fans of the game have pointed out that's a relatively low price for an iconic song and dance.
Epic Games hasn't brought any big updates to the game since 2021 kicked off, but the company has been adding smaller pieces of content here and there since the new year. This appears to be the first brand new dance emote to come to the game, but other features, such as sand tunneling have made a return to Fortnite recently.
A number of performers and artists have raised concerns about their signature dance moves being used in Epic Games' Fortnite as 'emotes' -- emotes being actions, flourishes and dances that a character can perform in the game, ranging from a round of applause to short choreographed routines.
Rapper 2 Milly has said he is considering legal action against Epic over the game's Swipe It emote, which appears to replicate the artist's dance, the Milly Rock. Similarly, there are emotes that resemble Snoop Dogg's Drop It Like It's Hot dance, Psy's Gangnam Style, and even Donald Faison's Poison dance from the US sitcom Scrubs. Whether these emotes are an homage or infringement depends on whether the dance moves that they imitate are protected by copyright.
It seems clear that dances like 2 Milly's Milly Rock, Snoop Dogg's Drop It Like It's Hot and Psy's Gangnam Style are actions capable of performance. The artists have performed them in their own videos and Fortnite characters are now performing them as emotes in the game. The question of whether or not these dances attract copyright protection would appear to turn on whether these short routines or movements are sufficiently original.
In another relevant case concerning photographs, the European Court of Justice held that an intellectual creation is the author's own \"...if it reflects the author's personality... if the author was able to express his creative abilities in the production of the work by making free and creative choices.\" Each of the artists alleging that Fortnite's emotes have copied their signature dance moves would no doubt argue that the dances they have created reflect their personality. Indeed, it is for this reason that they are recognizable in the game.
As Fortnite continues to pile on new content and skins for players to tinker with, another new emote has just been revealed. The massively popular battle royale title is notoriously known for making dance emotes, and that's exactly what Fortnite players can expect with this latest announcement. But this dance might be pretty recognizable for those who remember South Korean singer Psy's takeover in 2012 when he went viral for his song \"Gangnam Style.\" Yes, Fortnite has indeed added a \"Gangnam Style\" dance emote almost a decade after the song came out.
It's been more than a little while since the dance was popular. Luckily, it's been ingrained in pop culture ever since it debuted. But given that Fortnite is the type of game where any type of emote goes, including TikTok dances and other memes, it seems like this one might have been added a bit sooner.
If \"Gangnam Style\" isn't quite your thing, just stick around for a little while. You'll see lots of other dances and poses coming to the emote section in the coming weeks, as there's always plenty of pop culture references in Fortnite.
The Gangnam Style Fortnite emote isn't a surprise because dancing emotes have been a major part of the game since its inception. It's actually shocking that the emote arrived so late in the game. It should have been included in the game earlier, given how popular this dance was in the recent past.
This emote present in the item shop and will remain for a while. Players will have to shell out 500 V-Bucks to purchase this emote. Hopefully, the Gangnam style Fortnite emote won't run into issues like the Cyberdyne emote did.

One reason it took this long for the emote to finally hit Fortnite, which is now filled to the brim with dances originating from social media video platform TikTok, could be tied to the legal implications of adding the dance.
With everything going crazy around, \"Fortnite\" is adding the \"Fortnite\" Gangnam style which is a decade old K-pop craze which is one of the most popular hits that came up within a decade! Psy's Gangnam Style is now the newest emote in the game \"Fortnite\". With a number of new dance crazes around on TikTok, who could forget the all-time classic Gangnam Style
In case people are wondering, yes, the official North American \"Fortnite\" account had also retweeted this video so this means that the emote should definitely be available in the US and maybe even in Europe as well. The data miner called HYPEX, however, was able to acquire a video of how the emote dances in its full glory.
According to a recent video by I Talk on YouTube, it is seen that the dance move can be seen on the Icon Craze emote that is apparently being sold for 500 V-bucks. In order to get the iconic dance that rocked 2012, especially this 2021 where the same numbers are used, is not too bad for an emote that costs 500 V-bucks.
Developer Epic Games is being sued by a YouTuber and choreographer over the use of a dance emote in its battle royale title Fortnite. The popular 2017 online video game features in-game dance emotes, many of which are based on dance moves from pop culture. The dance emotes are made available to players for a small fee.
Epic Games has previously come under fire for its emotes, with multiple people suing Fornite over its in-game dances. This includes a range of celebrities like rapper 2 Milly, actor Alfonso Ribeiro, and even the viral meme-creating Backpack Kid. In these three cases specifically, the performers did not actually own a copyright to their dances despite being the ones who popularized them. As such, the creators of the dance moves could not legally claim the dance moves as their own. It seemed that similar cases brought to court against Epic Games would not end in the favor of the plaintiffs. However, the newest Fortnite dance emote-related case may prove to be different this time.
Although the aforementioned Fortnite dance lawsuits have been dropped temporarily, Epic Games has been hit with another dance move lawsuit. As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, YouTuber Kyle Hanagami has filed a lawsuit against Epic Games for its alleged unauthorized use of one of the content creator's copyrighted choreographed dance moves. This suit claims that Fortnite's 2020 \"It's Complicated\" dance emote copies the hook of one of Hanagami's copyrighted dance moves from 2017. In addition to a court order that terminates the use of the dance emote in Fortnite, Hanagami requests legal fees and compensatory damages.
Though Fortnite is a battle royale title, it has developed a reputation for its use of dance emotes, especially when associated with related lawsuits. With the filing of yet another court case, its unclear what the future of dance emotes in the game may look like, but it seems as though Epic may have a very different lawsuit against it this time.
Epic Games, the company behind Fortnite, has been sued by rapper 2 Milly (Terrence Ferguson) over its \"Swipe It\" dance emote. The in-game dance, which is no longer available for sale but still usable by players who bought it, features a dance move that became popular years ago with the release of \"Milly Rock.\"
The lawsuit accuses Epic of \"misappropriation\" of the dance, claiming that it has \"unfairly profited from exploiting Ferguson's protected creative expression and likeness.\" The dance move, which is called Milly Rock by Ferguson, was offered for sale at around $5 by Epic as the \"Swipe It\" emote in battle royale game Fortnite.
The legal complaint points toward other Fortnite dance emotes based on popular dances, such as the \"Ride the Pony\" emote which appears to be a segment from 2012's hit \"Gangnam Style,\" \"Tidy\" linked to \"Drop it Like It's Hot,\" and \"Fresh\" based on a dance popularized by the TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
The lawsuit seeks to prevent Epic Games from selling the emote again, as well as damages and legal costs. Ferguson isn't the first artist to take offense with Epic's dance emotes. In the past, Scrubs actor Donald Faison expressed a bit of disapproval over Fortnite's \"Dance Moves\" emote, which is based on a dance he performed in the TV show.
Emotes are a way to show off dance moves or as a form of taunt to killers (note that killers do not change in behavior if you were to use emotes). Emotes can be located in shop > emotes. All of the emotes require a certain amount of survivals and can be activated by press
