Rick Astley is ‘never gonna give up’ Fortnite, or at least his new emote won’t. Don’t really know if the kids playing get this but, Fortnite’s doing it anyway.

Fortnite released the new emote along with a Rick-roll tweet that appeared to be a video of a polar bear. Well done.

The emote is named “Never Gonna”, after Rick Astley’s hit song “Never Gonna Give You Up” from 1987 .

Purchase the emote (featuring Astley’s signature shuffle dance) from the in-game store for $5!

Here’s a fan made video (already) of a Fortnite version of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” 1987 music video.
