Fortnite's developers have partnered up with the NFL to bring exclusive skins to the game, meaning there will be one for every single NFL franchise.
In case you hadn't heard, Fortnite is pretty popular right now. In fact, at last count, the game had 8.3 million concurrent players across all platforms. A lot of those players include some pretty famous people. Athletes in particular including those from the NFL, MLB, and even the world of European soccer have demonstrated on the field that they most definitely play Fortnite.
Well, now that crossover is about to work in reverse. Starting today, November 9th, 2018, Fortnite players will be able to purchase full NFL outfits for their avatars, as reported by Gamespot. Epic Games, Fortnite's developer, has teamed up with the NFL to bring players this unique opportunity. That means the uniforms on sale will be the actual official kits worn by your favorite football players.
There will be 33 different uniforms available for purchase from the in-game store. That's one for each and every franchise in the NFL plus a special Fortnite-themed one too. The new skins will apparently hit the store at 7 pm EST should all go to plan, so by the time you read this they may very well already be available. As of right now, Epic has not revealed how much the skins will cost.
What the inclusion of NFL-themed skins doesn't tell us what's next for Fortnite. Neither does the Hunting Party Challenges reward skin, a robot of some sort, that has been leaked this week. Normally around this time of the season, we start to see clues pointing towards what big event is coming next on the Battle Royale Island. So far, though, nothing.
The cube is gone, as are the monsters it brought along with it, and the island is a happier place than it has been in months. Well, the goal is still to land on it and try to kill as many people as you can, but you know what we mean. Now you'll be able to run around the new, happier map wearing the uniform of your favorite NFL team. What better time has there been to be a regular on Fortnite Island than right now?
