Are you one of the millions who enjoy Fornite, but also can’t get enough of the NFL? Well, Epic Games and the NFL are about to bring your favorite NFL teams to Fornite, in the form of outfits. There’s a bunch of other NFL-theme items making their way into the game.
And no, I’m not making this stuff up.
The National Football League (NFL) has teamed up with Epic Games, creator of one of the most popular video games in the world, Fortnite.
Beginning Friday, November 9, NFL team “outfits” will be available in the Battle Royale Item Shop. This unique opportunity will give Fortnite players the ability to purchase and customize up to eight outfits representing their favorite NFL teams.
In addition to NFL team outfits, there will be football-themed emotes, harvesting tools, gliders, and even a referee outfit, so players can bring their passion for football into Fortnite.
Once a player owns an NFL team outfit they will be able to choose a uniform from any of the League’s 32 teams and customize the jersey with a number of their choice (1-99). The NFL team outfits will be available as both male and female figures and can be customized with a different team/number each time a player uses the outfit in Fortnite.
These new skins will be available as of November 9th, at 7 PM ET. What we don’t is how much they skins will cost. Guess we’ll find out soon. All I know is that I’ll be picking up the Philadelphia Eagles skin, with my favorite number. Now that I think about it, that’s actually really cool. What about you?
First the mad Titan, Thanos, now the titans of the gridiron. What’s next? The NBA? WWE? I mean, this is Fornite. So the sky is pretty much limitless when it comes to their cross promotions.
